Your wireline phone and address are biannually updated in the system using information from CenturyLink's 9-1-1 databases, using the physical address you provide to the wireline telephone company. You can register your wireline phone with a new address if you want it updated sooner than biannually. But you should also provide the new physical address to the telephone company, because their info will overwrite your registered address during the next biannual update.

All wireless and VoIP phone subscribers in the Montrose area who wish to receive emergency notifications via these types of phones. Subscribers' registered wireless and VoIP information will not affect their wireline phones that are already in the system. Notifications will be sent based on the physical address provided during registration, not based on the current location of the phone.
The Emergency Notification System may be activated at any time of day or night. You will receive these calls when the system is activated and your wireline phone's physical address, or your wireless or VoIP phone's registered physical address, is within the geographic area chosen to receive the emergency message. The Emergency Notification System will only be activated for emergency purposes.
If you move after you have entered your information in the system via the registration website, you will need to update your address via the same website. If you created an account when registering for the first time, log back into your account and change the address. If you did not initially create an account, you may re-register with the new address, either by creating an account or without creating an account. The new information associated with your phone number will replace the existing information.
No. The last address that you enter into the registration website will be the only location associated with your telephone number in the system. Your telephone number can only be in the database once, at one physical address.
