Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS)

Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS)


During a major wildfire, the San Bernardino
County Fire Department uses a system known as the Telephone Emergency Notification System
or TENS to send high-speed mass notifications by telephone and text messages. This system helps us get you critical updates,
such as evacuation information, as soon as possible. A database of landline telephone numbers is
updated every six months. But, if you only use a mobile phone or have
more than one mobile phone in your family, it’s important for you to register those mobile
numbers in TENS to receive these critical updates. Visit SBCFire.org and search “Alert Warning
System” to sign up to receive emergency text messages. TENS alerts are targeted to affected areas. Enter a valid San Bernardino County street
address and you will only receive alerts for your local area. Help us keep you safe during a disaster by
registering your mobile phone number today at SBCFire.org.
