RAVE Mobile Safety

The City of Cornwall’s RAVE Mobile Safety system, (formerly Rapid Notify System) is administered by the City of Cornwall Office of Emergency Management and is a tool that police and emergency personnel have at their disposal when incidents occur that may compromise public safety. The system works by automatically phoning all homes and businesses in an affected area with a specific warning. The message is delivered as simply and clearly as possible by voice. All the calls are generated and tracked by a sophisticated computer system to make sure every number is called, more than once if necessary.

What to do in an event that you receive an automated phone call from the Cornwall Police Service?

  • Do not panic. Take the advice seriously.
  • Follow the instructions on the message.
  • Tune your radio to the local station for up-to-date information on the situation.


  • Dial 9-1-1- or the Cornwall Police Service unless you are involved in an emergency yourself and require police, fire or EMS.

The City of Cornwall’s RAVE Mobile Safety System has proven to be an effective and essential part of municipal and government public safety programs. The system offers reliable and cost-effective communication solutions to help people connect during a crisis, to manage operational incidents and other communication activities.

The Cornwall Police Service is committed to its’ vision: “A safer Cornwall for all to enjoy.”
