This system is be able to send text based messages to email addresses and text capable cell phones of all members of the public who sign up for this program. Our Emergency Management Staff are also be able to update citizens directly from the field. This program is intended to supplement information you will receive from television, radio and other sources. However, it should not replace individual and family emergency planning.
