A new messaging system for general and emergency alerts is coming to the City of Purcell. The new system is an easy-to-use platform that will allow for rapid and timely messaging, especially during a crisis.
The new messaging system can provide lifesaving emergency information during adverse weather, as well as notify the public about power outages and other service interruptions. Notifications can be sent by phone, SMS, email, and social media. The system is very flexible and much more precise, meaning that citizens will be less likely to receive unwanted messages. Once a citizen creates their account, they can add multiple phone numbers, email addresses, and physical addresses on their account, allowing them to be notified of emergencies or outages at other locations.
To increase the success of the new system, it is very important that information is entered correctly during the initial setup and updated frequently.
