Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS)
New Emergency Notification System Upgrade
If you live, work or go to school in Marin County and are 18 and over, you may now register your cell phone or VoIP (voice over internet protocol) phone to receive emergency alerts sent by call, text, or email from the County of Marin.
Listed and unlisted/blocked Marin County landline phone numbers are already included in our emergency notification system. Cell phone and VoIP numbers are not included and will require your registration in our Self-Registration Portal.
Register Multiple Marin Locations
Perhaps you live in Marin, but work outside the County. Or you work and go to school in Marin, but live outside the County. Each geographic location in Marin you choose requires registration with a unique identifying email address. You may register up to two cellphone numbers and one VoIP number per geographic location.
Be Sure You are Registered to Get the Emergency Call, Text & Email
Emergency officials use the Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS) to deliver incident-specific information or potentially life-saving instruction to the precise geographic area(s) affected. Emergency situations may include:
- flooding, wildfires, and subsequent evacuations;
- public safety incidents including crimes that affect your neighborhood;
- and post-disaster information about shelters, transportation, or supplies.
