Escambia County is partnering with a number of local firms in launching a new notification system, aimed at alerting residents to developing emergencies.
“Basically, it’s an automated notification system, that can communicate with citizens on many different levels,” said John Dosh, Escambia County’s Emergency Management Chief. “Whether it be cellphone, home phone, work phone. It can email, it can text. It’s a subscription to provide this service.”
