AlertHC for severe weather
It’s Spring time again in Greater Cincinnati…here’s how to be prepared for severe weather…take cover…tune in…take action!
This is former Hamilton County Commissioner, Chris Monzel, and this is the Monzel Report.
From the tornados in Alabama to the flooding in Nebraska…this is the time of year for severe weather. The weather can change so fast that it becomes hard to keep up with those changes…and it may happen before the outdoor siren system is even activated.
Alert Hamilton County (or Alert HC) and Smart911 are a joined effort to both notify residents, visitors, and those who work in Hamilton County of emergency situations and other important information, as well as provide an opportunity to create a Safety Profile that can save vital response time during an emergency.
With Alert HC, users are able to choose from 42 different alerts they may wish to be notified about to keep themselves and their families safe. This system is completely customizable and allows users to choose which alerts they want to receive and how they want to receive them. Alert Hamilton County can notify users via text message, email, and phone call notification for the following alerts: Civil Emergency Message, Shelter In Place, Tornado Warning, Flash Flood Warning and local Municipal Alerts.
Being a part of the AlertHC system protects you much faster and gives you more details relating to an issue that presents a risk to you in your community. Please take a few minutes and sign up at www.alerthc.org .
