Recognizing the need to deliver notifications, emergency or otherwise, to residents, visitors, and property owners, Dare County entered a “software as a service” agreement with Regroup Mass Notification system earlier this year. The cost for this service is shared between Dare County and the Towns. Under this service, users can sign up for alerts via text, phone call, email, or multiple platforms.
While signing up for the service, you can choose which form of communication you prefer, as well as the frequency with which you receive the alerts and messages. You can also sign up to receive weather alerts from NOAA and the National Weather Service. Changing personal settings is easy and you can unsubscribe at any time. Your Regroup account will still be active and you can change your setting to receive alerts again.
To establish your profile, you are required to check the box that allows the Regroup system to send you voice and text messages. These notifications can be turned off in the Notifications tab of your profile. Illustrated instructions can be found here. Making your profile public allows only the group administrators to see your information; your information is not shared or see by others.
Phone Numbers users can opt in to receive alerts sent as voice recordings over the phone and/or text.
Addresses alerts affecting specific areas of Dare County may be sent based on location. Including your home address, work address, and the addresses of any additional properties you own in Dare County will ensure you receive notification of situations that may impact those areas.
Weather Events select which alerts you would like to receive from NOAA and the National Weather Service.
A Town of Kill Devil Hills Emergency Alerts Group has been set up through this Regroup service. Please note that signing up for the Town of Kill Devil Hills Emergency Alerts Group will automatically sign you up for the Dare County Emergency Alerts Group as well. All users are encouraged to stay subscribed to the Dare County Emergency Alerts Group as a great deal of updated information comes from them. Membership in the Dare County Emergency Alerts Group does not automatically sign you up for the Kill Devil Hills Emergency Alerts Group; separate registration is required.
The Town of Kill Devil Hills joins the other Dare County local governments in taking this additional step to improve emergency and selected non-emergency communications with our residents, property owners and visitors. If you have questions, please email email@example.com or call the Town’s Administration Department, 252.449.5300.
