Contact groups are definitions of one or more contacts and can be used to send alert or recovery notifications to a group of contacts. Contact groups can be created for an area of expertise (e.g., _network-administrators_) or geographic location (e.g., _san_francisco-support_). When a host or service has a problem or recovers, _NoMa_, as configured, will find the appropriate contact groups to send notifications to and notify all contacts. These _Groups_ are applied in the _Notifications_ tab.

{note:title=Deleting Contacts Groups associated with Escalations}If you need to delete a contact group and it is associated with an escalation, you need to first delete the escalation, then delete the contact group. If you deleted a contact group that is associated with an escalation, this will cause a crash of the NoMa daemon and an error in the Debug Log.{note}
