Public Safety Officials Encourage Residents to Sign Up For Local Emergency Notifications To Be Better Prepared for an Emergency
Noble County Emergency Management Agency and Office of Homeland Security (EMA&HS) along with the other public safety officials in Noble County are excited to announce that Noble Alerts is now available to all residents effective July1, 2022. Noble Alerts is a free service that allows individuals to sign up for notifications sent from state and local authorities. Noble Alerts keeps residents and travelers informed on potentially hazardous situations involving weather, traffic and other emergencies. Noble Alerts is powered by Rave Mobile Safety. This project has been in development for over a year and EM Specialist Erica Rossiter and Intern Syndney Yonally have finally made it ready for launch.
“Noble Alerts enables authorities to notify the community in real time,” Rossiter, Noble County Emergency Management Specialist, said. “This service allows for critical communication with the public and provides individuals with the information needed to stay safe or take precautions during hazardous or emergency situations.”
Noble Alerts enables residents and travelers to Noble County to sign up for free at https://smart911.com/smart911/ref/reg.action?pa=noblecountyohio, to receive timely and actionable emergency alerts via email, text or voice message. They can also identify when and how they are alerted and communicated with before, during, and after emergencies.
“Community members will receive notifications that will improve safety in our county and help inform residents of potentially lifesaving actions they may need to take in an emergency,” said Sydney Yonally, intern for Noble County Emergency Management Agency and Homeland Security from University of Akron. “The information sent out by Noble Alerts through emergency notifications allows both residents and first responders to be better informed in an emergency situation.”
The EMA&HS encourages all members of our community and their families to sign up for Noble Alerts in order to be prepared should an emergency occur.
