The Emergency Notification System (ENS) is offered by Greater Harris County 9-1-1 Emergency Network (GHC 9-1-1) to people living within the GHC 9-1-1 territory. Until now, the service was only able to contact home or work (landline) phones. However, now cell and Internet phones can be contacted, and GHC 9-1-1 does not charge a fee!

ENS is only used for public safety emergencies such as chemical spills or hazardous materials, missing persons, local area evacuation, dangerous persons and extreme life-threatening weather events.

For more details as to why the City of El Lago uses the two notification systems, go here.
