Community Emergency Notification System (CENS):

The CENS system is designed to rapidly notify an affected area of an emergency by sending a recorded message through the telephone system from officials within Maricopa County. CENS uses the 911 database to extract phone numbers determined by the circle or area drawn on the CENS map. CENS launches a prerecorded message to the telephone numbers in the area defined.
