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, email, or smartphone application from the County of Marin. Emergency officials use the AlertMarin Emergency Notification System to deliver incident-specific information or potentially life-saving instruction to the precise geographic area(s) affected.
For the last five years, Marin County emergency officials have used the Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS) to deliver urgent information to area landlines in the case of natural disasters and public safety emergencies. Paid for by the Marin Association of Public Employees and Marin County Management Employees Association.


Marin OES has phased out its Telephone Emergency Notification System, or TENS, and recently sent out prompts about the upgrade to more than 13,000 Alert Marin subscribers who were registered on TENS. But to keep with the times, the upgraded system will now allow Marin residents, along with those who live outside the county but work or attend school in Marin, to register their mobile phones to receive the same urgent notifications. Innovative upgrades to such awesome public services ensure Marin County continues to be one of the safest and most beautiful places in the country! TENS will continue to offer area-specific alerts to landlines while incorporating mobile devices into the improved safety system free of charge.


Emergency officials use the secure information to more effectively deliver specific and crucial alerts to registered participants in relevant geographic locations.
