Emergency Notification System
The Global Connect Notification System is a method that allows mass notification of Storey County residents and businesses in emergency situations. Data is obtained from AT&T on all of the landline phones based in Storey County. This data is then broken down by community such as Virginia City & Gold Hill, Virginia City Highlands, Mark Twain Estates, Rainbow Bend, Lockwood and the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center and notification lists are created.
If you have another telephone service provider besides AT&T, such as VOIP or if you wish to add your cell phone or work number to the system, please click on the link provided. If you don’t have internet access please contact the Storey County Communications Center at 847-0930.
When a notification message is sent out it is important that you listen to the entire message before hanging up your telephone to make sure that you are properly informed of the situation.
In addition to the Global Connect System, Storey County uses other methods for providing our residents and visitors important information. Updated regularly, the breaking news section of the Storey County website is your source for the latest news in the county. Visit often for upcoming community events, articles about Storey County, people and places in the County as well as community alerts and safety information.
