"The ability to reach all residents quickly during an emergency like the ones we've seen first-hand and in the news this week is critical to our efforts," Hall County Emergency Manangement director David Kimbrell said in a statement. "The Citizens Alert System ensures Hall County first responders will be able to react quickly and efficiently to reach each individual in the case of an emergency."
The county uses the system to let residents know about such events as severe weather, road closures and natural disasters.
