The New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) invites you to register for the Community Alert Network. This service is intended to enhance communication between participating OCFS facilities and their community neighbors.
OCFS operates residential youth facilities across the state and works with communities to be the best possible neighbor.
The safety of the community, OCFS residents and staff are of utmost importance and we use the latest technologies to assist us with communication.
We are happy to notify you of events that we believe may affect you as our neighbors.
For example, you could be notified if a youth leaves a facility without authorization or if a facility evacuation is required. This notification will be in the form of an automated telephone call. Updates will also be provided.
How to Register
If you are interested in participating in this free service, please follow the instructions below.
To register by phone:
Call 1-855-638-3540 and follow the pre-recorded instructions. Please do not call the facility directly to register.

For the names of facilities in your area, please consult the list in this brochure. In order to register, you must provide your telephone number(s), the county and the facility name. You may select more than one facility.
