If you receive a message, listen or read carefully. Follow the instructions given. You may be directed to a commercial TV or radio station for further information.

How does Alert Conroe determine what phone numbers to dial?
Public safety agencies have the authority to use all known landline telephone numbers and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) numbers for ENS calls including confidential telephone numbers. Citizens can also register to receive alert messages via cell phone calls, text messages and e-mails.
Why you may not receive an alert?
Alert Conroe uses a database of known landlines and VoIP numbers. As communication technology has evolved, one central database is not available for all of the options of receiving phone calls or written messages. Cell phone numbers, some VoIP numbers, and other numbers from other types of service not associated with traditional telephone service providers, will not be in the database. Also, multiple telephone numbers associated with one central system may not be contacted. These types of phones must be registered separately.
