CabCoALERT mass notification service. This service allows authorized County leaders to create and rapidly disseminate time–sensitive messages to every telephone number stored in the notification database via phone call, email, text message and or phone app.
In an emergency, the Sheriff’s Office and your local police are able to place evacuation calls to your home land line without registration. However, residents are encouraged to register their cell phone, which increases the likelihood that you receive timely notification of evacuation and the post-event all clear.
CabCoALERT is an emergency and non-emergency alert notification system. Anyone who lives, works or travels through Cabarrus Country is encouraged to register for the system. Registration takes approximately five (5) minutes and allows you to enter up to (5) locations within the county.
