The Tehama County Sheriff’s Telephonic
Emergency Notification System (TENS) is designed to telephone and e-mail
residents and businesses in a designated area of an emergency, disaster, or
incident that dictates the need for the public to be aware of a situation or
condition. Providing your phone number and e-mail does not guarantee that
you will receive notification, nor does it offer that any notification that
is made will assure that you and/or your property are safe. This system
does not preclude the need for citizens to constantly be aware of their
community and their surroundings.
The system is designed to automatically call the telephone number of record
for a given address. These telephone numbers are provided to our system by
AT&T. By completing this form, you are requesting an alternate or
additional telephone number to be called in the event of an emergency
notification at your business or residence. For example, many residents
would like notification on their cellular telephone if a situation is
occurring near their residence. Likewise, many people have chosen to use a
cellular telephone rather than a traditional telephone in their homes. In
these cases, AT&T will not have a telephone of record for an address. By
providing your cellular telephone number, we can program our system to match
your cellular phone with your address.
E-mails will not be generated in all incidents, and as in all computerized
systems, there are expected to be occasional failures. Citizens are
therefore again cautioned to be constantly aware of the conditions and of
their surroundings; and not to rely on this system to keep them informed.
