The Jackson County Emergency Management Agency has begun the process of implementing a county wide notification system.
EMA Director Duane Davis says they recently signed a contract with the Everbridge Notification System to help get out information to it's residents. He says the main purpose of the system is to get out important weather information. Davis says residents can choose what information to receive and how they receive it. He says residents can be notified by land line, cellphone or text message for weather watches and warnings.
Davis says Jackson County signed a one year contract with an option for four additional years. Cost for the first year is approximately $19,000, which includes installation and setup fees. Davis says the cost for each additional year is set at $18,000.
Davis says Jackson County residents can sign up for the notification program during the Jackson County Fair from July 21 through July 27.
