For businesses, we only store one main phone number. For residents, we may have more than one number that belongs to you in the database. Additionally, you may request to have a secondary number be entered into our database for priority calling.
From a technical perspective, we utilize multiple physical and virtual layers of firewalls to maintain data security. ECN only utilizes secure transmissions with its customers. No confidential information is ever transmitted between ECN and its customers using e-mail or FTP, but rather always utilizes either a VPN tunnel or SSL.
Data is hosted in state-of-the-art facilities which require photo identification, thumb-print recognition, keyed access, and are manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week with full-security personnel. All data is encrypted prior to being placed on tape for offsite storage. ECN also retains an external, independent security firm to perform annual security audits.
We may conduct periodic tests to assure that messages are being delivered to numbers in the notification database.
In general, calls are sent to the primary number only, but we also have the ability to call multiple numbers for each resident or business when requested by the resident or business. Please contact the Office of Emergency Management at (203) 854-0238 to provide us with that information.
If, after several attempts the call does not successfully go through, the system will stop attempting to call.
When you receive the next call, say “hello” once, and turn down the volume of your radio / television or press the mute button on your telephone to allow full message delivery.
