City of Rockport | FirstCall Emergency Notification System

During an emergency, the City of Rockport and Aransas County will implement the FirstCall Emergency Notification System. Citizens with caller ID on their phones should take note that the caller name that appears is "FirstCall" and that the call will have a 361 area code.

The system will call each telephone number in the database. Once answered, the system will deliver a short voice message to you or your answering machine. If a recipient of a call wants to hear the message again, calling the phone number that appears on the caller ID will give residents the opportunity to listen to the call again. If the call is not answered or if the line is busy, the system will attempt to make the call again. 

The system can also send this emergency message to a cell phone by SMS (Text message) and can be received by email.

Residents must register with the system in order to receive messages from FirstCall. There are two methods by which to register:



Residents can choose to enter up to a combined total of 5 different phone numbers or email addresses. Residents can contact Lt. Larry Sinclair at (361) 790-1134 if they have questions or need assistance with FirstCall.
