Jackson County changes mass-notification system

Jackson County Sheriff Rick Meyer is announcing a change to the county’s mass notification system. He says the county has switched to a new vendor called Hyper Reach to send the automated emergency messages.

All white page and yellow page land line phone numbers have already been uploaded into the system. However if you want to receive alerts on your cell phone, you must sign up on the county website.

To sign up go to www.jacksoncounty.in.gov and at the bottom of the page look for Citizen Alert. You can click that link to sign up for the new service.
