Emergency notifications provided through text, e-mail, phone


Clay County is now providing local residents a way to receive critical and important information about their community. In addition to emergency notifications, residents are invited to sign up to receive local information that impacts their lives and their communities, and receive it in the way they choose, by text or email, and, during emergencies, by telephone, as desired.

The system allows local agencies to offer a variety of information to people who live and work in the area and who want to be informed of critical emergency information as well as other key information about the community.

This is a free service provided by Clay County, and is part of a larger, regional effort made up of several counties around the area.

It is easy to register. Residents simply click on www.co.clay.tx.us/ips/cms which leads to the North Texas Regional Communications (NTRC) Registry, where they can set up preferences on which areas they want information from, depending on where they live and work, and what types of available information they wish to receive. Residents can also register through the NTRC web site at registry.i-info.com/rc/ntrc , select the county for which they want information and click “next”.

The registry information is managed by I-INFO, a highly-secure system that is used by thousands of organizations to manage their information and keep it safe. Likewise, I-INFO allows residents to securely access and manage their own information.

“We are pleased to be able to provide this new tool to our community members,” said County Judge Kenneth Liggett. “It is a cost effective way to meet the changing needs of our citizens while providing them with information they need, when they need it.”

As a reminder, local television and radio, NOAA Weather Radio, outdoor warning sirens and other warning systems will remain primary sources for immediate emergency information. The mass notification registry is another tool available to alert the public to emergency situations.

Those who have previously registered and want to change their options for receiving notifications can go to www.i-info.com/MiProfile and enter their username and password. If you forgot your username and password.
