Alert Athens County

Alert Athens Co

Athens County uses the ALERT ATHENS COUNTY system for Citizen Alerts to communicate with thousands of businesses and residents in minutes in the event of an emergency.

The ALERT ATHENS COUNTY system, is able to alert residents about severe weather, fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and in process violent crimes. Messages can be sent to individuals using a variety of contact mechanisms– cell phone, landline, email, text messaging, fax, pager, and more – ensuring that residents receive life-saving emergency information and important public service announcements in minutes. Citizens listed in the Athens County 9-1-1 database are automatically subscribed to alerts by landline telephone, though any individual may self-register, provide additional contact information or opt out. In addition, the County also uses the ALERT ATHENS COUNTY system to notify residents about other important activities, such as road closures and water utility maintenance.

We have a commitment to protect our citizens from any danger that threatens our community. The ability to reach all residents quickly during an emergency in order to warn them and provide guidance is critical to upholding that commitment.  The ALERT ATHENS COUNTY mass notification and interactive communication system ensures the County is able to react quickly and efficiently to reach each individual in the case of an emergency.
