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 5000 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
All the calls you receive will have the Caller ID of the City of Kent Police
Department. 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
