CHEROKEE COUNTY – A new emergency notification delivery system will be launched Feb. 15 by the East Texas Council of Governments, with subscribers required to re-register for the service.
According to a release from Cherokee County Emergency Management Coordinator Sergio Servin, ETCOG “will transfer Cherokee County reverse 911 Emergency Notification System to Rave Alert.”
Previously, the county was served by the Code Red system, but it will no longer be in effect, he said.
All residents are required to re-register for the new system, as the information previously provided to Code Red will not transfer over, he said.
According to www.ravemoblesafety.com, Rave Alert “is the leading mass notification system enabling higher education institutions, organizations, schools and state and local governments to quickly and reliably send messages in just three clicks.”
The system provides automatic updates, easy-to-use interface and scalable communication – offering an unlimited amount of messages to an unlimited number of recipients, according to the site.
Servin said that residents can log on to www.smart911.com/smart911/ref/reg.action?pa=cherokeecountytexas to register for Rave Alert.
