Alert System Offers Agencies Unique Tool in Kentucky

(TNS) - Daviess County agencies currently use a communication system that enables them to pinpoint locations small or large and send direct information to anyone with a smartphone.

The only problem has been getting agencies on board to promote it.

Since it was approved for purchase in 2015, Daviess County Emergency Management Agency and Parks and Recreations have been using the ping4alerts! system to send alerts to people who have downloaded the app.

During that time, EMA has been able to send weather alerts to people within specific locations, and ROMP Fest attendants have been able to receive up-to-date messages, but it hasn’t widely promoted the app.
