It's never been easier to stay informed of emergency situations happening in Chatham County. With landlines steadily decreasing, the effort to relay critical emergency messages to the public has expanded. Through the Community Notification System (CNS), an emergency notification system, any Chatham County resident can register his/her cell phone number or voice-over IP phone such as Comcast or Vonage and receive short, informative calls with updates and public safety alerts.
CNS is an emergency notification system used by the County and the City of Savannah that sends an automated message to residents and businesses during emergency situations. The system is designed to get public safety messages to citizens quickly and efficiently. In the past, landlines were the only lines that could receive notifications.
Landlines are already in the system so citizens don't need to register those.
