One Call Now | Notification System Information

One Call Now Logo
In an effort to improve communications with the recipients of Board services and their families/guardians/providers, the Board recently began using a mass notification system provided through the business communications company One Call Now. One Call Now’s notification system will enable us to quickly notify program participants, parents/guardians, service providers and staff via telephone, email, and/or text message whenever there are delays or closings due to inclement weather or other emergencies. Although we will continue to disperse notifications via local media outlets (TV, radio, etc.), we believe the One Call Now system will provide more timely notifications. We can also use the system to keep consumers, students, and parents/guardians/providers apprised of Board-sponsored events or other matters of interest.
If you wish to receive notifications via this system, you may fill in the new user form (One Call Now Information Form), print it out and mail it to:
ATTN: Notification System Coordinator
Portage County Board of Developmental Disabilities
2606 Brady Lake Road
Ravenna, OH 44266-1657
You may provide up to six (6) phone numbers and five (5) email addresses at which you can receive notifications. The first phone number you provide will be the primary number at which you want to receive notifications. General informational messages will go only to this number. Emergency/priority notifications will go to all numbers listed.
You may also opt to receive text message notifications on your cellular phone as well. Keep in mind that if you do not have a text messaging plan for your phone, you may be subject to additional charges by your wireless provider.
Be assured that the PCBDD and One Call Now will not sell, lease, rent or give any personal information about consumers/students and families, their phone numbers, email addresses or messages to any third party and that personal information will not be released unless there is a legal obligation to do so.
