Hyper-Reach Program – If you are a resident of Monroe County, you are
already enrolled in a program that could save the lives of you and your
family. Hyper-Reach is designed to allow emergency management
professionals from the Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Services, as
well as Monroe County Department of Public Safety, to contact you by
telephone in the event of a civil emergency. An automated phone message
would be directed to each phone in a specified area notifying residents of
impending or active emergency conditions, disasters, or health warnings.
These messages could include information about AMBER Alerts, law
enforcement notifications regarding dangerous or life-threatening
conditions, or hazardous materials incidents. Some may even require some
form of response from the person answering the phone to ensure the message
was received, or to verify a home was occupied or vacant in the case of
WHAT IF I don’t have a hard-wired, land-based telephone?

exclusively, you can still benefit from this service. Click on the

community. Hyper-Reach will never sell or distribute your phone number
or personally identifying information to third-party vendors.
