In 2019 Gilpin County and Black Hawk upgraded the emergency notification system with Hyper-Reach, a high-speed telephone emergency notification service allowing officials the ability to deliver pre-recorded information to either targeted areas or the entire city or county. Hyper-Reach has the capability of reaching thousands of people in minutes. It can deliver the pre-recorded message to a live person or an answering machine. Citizens and businesses are being encouraged to go online and register both cell phones and CenturyLink phone lines to ensure we have accurate information. Information can be entered by going online and registering at http://hyper-reach.com/cogilpinsignup.html. The link gives all of the citizens in Gilpin County access to the Hyper-Reach sign up website. Citizens will be asked for a name, address, and primary phone number. Participants may add multiple phone numbers into the database. Additional numbers may be your cell phone, VoIP, work, or any other telephone number you would like to be called on if an emergency notification call is initiated in the area where your home is located. The system allows you to choose a phone call or text message for the information sent. For many other features please visit the Hyper-Reach website here https://www.hyper-reach.com/features/.
