Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS)

The City currently participates in two types of telephone alert systems. On January 26, 2013, Marin County launched a new and improved version of Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS). The improved TENS automatically includes all residents who have a land line to receive emergency notifications. 

With the improved TENS the system allows us to send notifications to your home phone, as well as other registered numbers such as cell phone, voice-over internet protocol (VoIP), work numbers and email addresses. While TENS is tied to a physical street address, once you are registered in the system you will be able to receive notifications even if you are not home.

For Mill Valley residents and business owners who are currently receive anticipated warning notifications under the Marin Emergency Automated Notification System (MEANS) and only have a published land line and do not wish to add additional numbers, you do not need to re-register. Please note: If your land line is unpublished or blocked you will need to re-register with TENS and any additional numbers.

To register, please go to

If you need additional assistance, or if you have any questions, please contact Mill Valley Fire Department Administrative Assistant Kimberly Wilson at 415/389-4133.
