MADISON COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – Madison County officials have a new emergency alert system that can quickly alert people who live in the county to severe weather.
According to 24-Hour News 8’s partners, The Herald Bulletin, the new system allows county officials to alert mass numbers of people by cellphone, text, voice mail and internet.
Madison County’s emergency management director said the cost of the system will vary depending on the number of people who sign up. The director said it will be cheaper than installing sirens.
Organizers said they plan to visit fairs and community events to sign people up.
