Emergency info now accessible via mobile phone

Hamilton County emergency management debuted a technology change last week when the CodeRed system was dropped to implement a new one -- AlertSense.
“The new system offers more internal notifications than what the old system had,” said Emergency Management Director Kirt Smith. “They do offer some more warnings that a person can get if they sign up.”
Area residents can now receive life-saving emergency alerts and advanced warning of severe weather directly on their phones through an app. The public safety alerts include events such as crime, active shooter, imminent danger, hazardous materials, wildfire, floods and the need for immediate evacuation.
Smith said with the old system there would only be warnings for a few things, but now people can customize their alerts and what they want information about. The app allows for a person to not only get the information from their hometown at anytime, but also their current locations.
