Cobb’s SwiftReach accepting signups for alerts

The SwiftReach Swift911 notification system has been implemented by the Cobb Department of Public Safety to distribute alerts.

SwiftReach is a high-speed emergency notification system that alerts residents to emergency situations, including severe weather, missing and endangered persons or significant road closures due to fatality accidents or other unplanned incidents in the local area.

The program has the capability of delivering prerecorded messages to the entire county via landline telephone, cell phone, email and text messaging. The system uses a publicly available list of phone numbers that can be removed or updated by residents and businesses.

To opt-in and provide contact information for this service:

  • A sign-up portal that is available on the Police, Fire, EMA and Public Safety pages at CobbCounty.org.
  • Get the Swift911 Mobile App by texting the word "Swift911" to "99538." The response text will be a link for the Swift 911 app in the app store.
