Guilford County residents are now able to receive urgent and important information through cell phones, text messages, home phones, and e-mail.
Called GEANI, the Guilford Emergency Alert, Notification, and Information System sends public safety messages to residents and businesses within Guilford, Forsyth, Davidson, and Randolph counties.
Messages you receive are based on where an incident is taking place or will take place and where you live or work. The geographically based messages are about evacuations, shelter-in-place incidents, severe weather response and recovery efforts, law enforcement events, and other urgent incidents that affect public safety.
If you want to receive notifications on these numbers, self-register by going to this website.
Participation in GEANI is voluntary and phone numbers will not be shared for any other purpose.
For questions about GEANI, please contact Guilford County Emergency Management at 336-641-2278.
