CAPCOG - Regional Notification System (RNS)
With a growing number cellphone users and a dwindling number of landline phones in homes, self-registering for the Capital Area Council of Governments’ (CAPCOG) Regional Notification System (RNS) is key to protecting you and your family during disaster events. Registering phone numbers and email addresses at wireless.capcog.org lets residents in CAPCOG’s 10-county region receive emergency communications when they are the most valuable to them —as an emergency strikes.
