AREA JURISDICTIONS IMPLEMENT NEW MASS NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
January 21, 2015
The Macon County Emergency Telephone System Board (ETSB) and several area public bodies announced today the implementation of a new mass notification system to provide emergency alerts, weather alerts, and other important updates to area residents.
The new system, called the Macon County Emergency Alert and Notification System, sends time-sensitive messages to recipients via home, mobile, or business phone, e-mail, or text message. Citizens choose the alerts they wish to receive and how they will receive those alerts, and they can update their contact information and preferences at any time.
It's free to enroll in the system. Registration is fast and simple. Simply go online to www.maconcountyema.org and look for the "Macon County Emergency Alert & Notification System" button to register for the service.
The new Macon County Emergency Alert and Notification System replaces the Code Red mass notification system. As with the Code Red system, Macon County emergency first responders will be able to utilize the system to notify citizens of emergency situations. However, unlike the Code Red system, area communities will also be able to utilize the system to send a variety of notifications to their residents. So far, the villages of Argenta, Forsyth, Mount Zion, and Oreana have signed on to use the system, with each community contributing to its cost.
"Mount Zion believes this system increases our ability to effectively reach out to our community," said Mount Zion Village Administrator Julie Miller.
"This system allows us to alert residents to boil orders, street closures, water main breaks, and the like, as well as provide information on library programs," said Forsyth Village Administrator David Strohl, adding that "Thanks to the ETSB, area communities have access to the system at a much lower cost than they would have paid had they contracted on their own. It's a great example of intergovernmental cooperation for the benefit of the public."
To sign up for notifications, go to www.maconcountyema.org and look for the "Macon County Emergency Alert & Notification System" button.
