Marshall County urges residents to join free alert plan

Posted: Updated:

MADILL, Okla. -- Marshall County officials want to make sure everyone has access to instant information whenever there's an emergency.

"Winter is coming on, so we got to worry more about snow, sleet, ice... that kind of stuff," Emergency Management Director Robert Chaney said.

The county's Hyper-Reach alert system has been active for a year now.  There's no cost to sign up, and while Chaney likes the response so far, they're urging more residents to consider the benefits.

"We've had a tremendous response from people signing up on the service, but the our goal here with the Emergency Management department is to get every household, or every individual here in Marshall County, signed up on this program."

Hyper-Reach can also provide alerts about police-related emergencies. 

"We can reach out and touch any cell phone here in Marshall County, as well as send alerts out on landlines, email or text," Chaney said. "We can also use it for school closings, for any notification."
