How do you get notified of important information regarding our community? Some people use Twitter or Facebook. Others may happen to catch information on KPCW. Can I suggest perhaps an additional way, especially for life threatening emergencies?
This morning I received a call from the Summit County Sheriff’s automated Code Red system. It warned me that a bear was sighted by Sheriff’s deputies in my neighborhood. While this bear was only attacking trash cans, it could have been dangerous for my dogs. Yet, I can think of many other scenarios where information from law enforcement could mean the difference between life and death. Imagine a forest fire headed toward your house or what to do in the aftermath of an earthquake. It just makes sense to have a channel of communications ready to go between citizens and those people who have the information to help us.
I’ve been signed up on the service for quite a while and this is the first call I’ve received, so it’s not like it will spam you.
