In an effort to provide more reliable communications with Residents in the City of Kent and Franklin Township have implemented SwiftReach Networks, Inc. as our Emergency Notification service provider.

Swift911™ is a high speed notification program with the capability of rapidly delivering recorded warnings to the entire community, via telephone, email, text or pager. There are already over 5,000 phone numbers in the city's database, and as transmitted through the City of Kent Dispatch or Service Department, the system can contact up to four telephone numbers until reaching the designated party. Emergency messages are able to reach TTY (teletypewriter) phones used by those who are deaf or hard of hearing. Additionally, the system employs a Do Not Call component for those who do not wish to receive the alert.

Swift911™ in its simplest form is a system that makes phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information.


If you are not receiving these calls, please fill out the form below to add or update your contact information. You may also remove yourself from our previously created lists.
