Emergency Notification


Click on the link to register for Emergency Notifications from Bedford County to come to your cell phone.  Bedford County, in partnership with Geo-Comm, will send telephone notifications to residents and businesses within Bedford County, when impacted by, or in danger of being impacted by, an emergency or disaster. The Bedford County Emergency Notification System will only be used by emergency response personnel in order to notify residential homes and businesses with information regarding the event and if/what actions should be taken.

The Bedford County Emergency Notification System utilizes the area’s 911 data and can contact all land-lines, whether listed or unlisted, in the event of an emergency. It is TTY/TDD capable. If you utilize a Voice Over IP (VoIP) phone service, such as MagicJack, Vonage or a cable company provided phone service, or cellular phone for your primary residential/business line and you would like to be alerted over that line with the Emergency Notification System then you must register that number through Bedford County’s Emergency Notification System Opt-In site.

To register your VoIP phone, cellular phone, or e-mail address with the Bedford County Emergency Notification System please click the link below. If you would like to see examples of getting email to SMS notifications on your cellular phone please scroll down.

PLEASE NOTE: When registering or making changes after registering your cell phone or email address in the Bedford County Emergency Notification System it may take as much as 4 weeks before that cell number or email address becomes active for notifications due to the review, validation and activation process the County must complete.  Additionally, changes to your land-line phone number with your phone carrier may take a similar length of time to get through to Bedford County to become active on the alerting system.
