(CT DEMHS EOC) Connecticut State Emergency Management & Homeland Security. Legitimate phone number part of the Connecticut State Emergency Alert System. You have to sign up for it, via mobile phone for example (but of course it can also be spoofed by scam caller) Alerts to fugitive armed suspect, weather emergency, other disasters. Sometimes there is no voice message, which leads to making it appear a nuisance call. Sometime followed up with actual text message describing alert and link to more information.
Sounds phony to me. Why should I Press 1 or 2 to acknowledge this call? I am an answering machine! Later: Why would I want to acknowledge an auto accident 10's of miles from me? My local alert only sends a message once. It knows that I got it either live, or it's on my answering machine. ?????
Since this automated caller claims to be the CT Alert Notification System, it's the Hamden Police in the New Haven County area of Connecticut who's been requesting this 24/7 calling center to do this. If anyone has concerns over this kind of automated computer do contact the Hamden Police. Their nonemergency number is 1-203-230-4000 and they'll explain that they requested this company to contact a multiple number of Connecticut residents!
