Cell, email alerts available

Pulaski County citizens wishing to sign up to receive regional emergency alerts by cell phone, VoIP (Voice over IP) phone and email can now do so on the county website.
Landline phones, both listed and unlisted, already are included in the AlertPulaski database and, therefore, do not need to be registered. However, those who would like to receive the notifications by other means will need to register their number or email address by visiting the county website (pulaskicounty.org) and clicking on the AlertPulaski link.
The new program is a regional notification system that will send emergency notifications by landline telephone and other registered numbers or email addresses. Residents and businesses within the county that are in danger or may be impacted by an emergency situation or disaster will receive the automatic notifications.
For example, homes or businesses at risk will be notified of information on the event, as well as any actions that should be taken to reduce or eliminate the risk, such as evacuation.
The system, which is available through a partnership with Twenty First Century Communications Inc., utilizes the county’s 911 database.
It is TTY/TDD capable, meaning it will work with systems used by the disabled.
If a call is picked up by an answering machine, the system leaves a voice message. If the called number is busy or is not answered, the system redials the number up to three times in an attempt to deliver the message.
Each number or email address registered with the AlertPulaski system can be associated with only one address in the system. The registered number or address will be notified only when that address is affected by the emergency situation or disaster.
Although the system will be beneficial in notifying citizens of pertinent information impacting their safety, county officials warn that citizens should not wait for the system to notify them to evacuate or take other actions if they encounter a situation they deem to be dangerous.
