Union County Emergency Notification System “Hyper-Reach”

Union County is proud to announce the Hyper-Reach Mass Notification service to the citizens of Union County.  This service was a joint purchase between Union County Emergency Services, A-J, Anna, Cobden, Dongola, Jonesboro, Lick Creek, Shawnee and Tri County School Districts, City of Anna, Village of Cobden, Village of Dongola and the City of Jonesboro.

Telephone-based mass notifications systems are used by thousands of public safety agencies across the US to warn citizens about local emergencies, hazards and other threats.  Now Union County announces that they have selected Hyper-Reach to help bring this same lifesaving capability to the area.  Hyper-Reach is a state of the art mass emergency notification system designed specifically for public safety.

This emergency alert system will provide rapid notification of hazardous and urgent situations using a mix of telephone calls, text and email messages, and even TTY/TDD service for the hearing impaired.
