In an emergency, Everbridge sends messages via telephone, text message and email, but stop once they know that a person has read a message. There will be a Teller County Callout Test on Tuesday November 27th at 6:00 pm. This test will provide us with data as to how landlines in Teller County perform. How does the emergency notification system work? The emergency notification system makes geographically targeted notifications to residents that are in the area of an emergency. The system notifies residents via phone call, text message, email, or the Everbridge App. What will the message say? “This is the Teller County Sheriff’s Office. This is a test of the Emergency Notification System. There is no action required on your part. This message is being sent to all residents in Teller County. This is only a test.” Who will be receiving the alert? The alert is going to all Teller County Residents who are in the emergency notification system database. Right now there are approximately 10,800 people that will receive the call. To make sure you get the alert, please visit www.elpasoteller911.org and register today. Why is this test being done? 1. To verify the data in the system is accurate. 2. To test settings in the software to make sure we are not inundating phone service provider equipment. 3. To see how long it takes to notify all of Teller County 4. To make sure you are receiving up to date information.

Working together with the Aspen Mine Center, the Alzheimer’s Association can ensure we all have the resources needed to face the many challenges associated with the disease. Community leaders are essential in helping the Alzheimer’s Association best serve the needs of families affected by the disease, in driving awareness and in mobilizing the Teller County community in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
