COLUMBUS, Ind. — A provider of a reverse 911 service that would notify Columbus and Bartholomew County residents of severe weather, environmental disasters, road closures or other emergencies has been chosen, and the system could be operational by the fall, the Bartholomew County Emergency Operations Center director told the Columbus Board of Public Works and Safety today.
The board signed a memorandum of understanding between the city and county regarding Everbridge as the provider for $20,650. The city would pay $12,208 and the county $8,442.
The system allows for messages to be sent in multiple languages and to people's home, work and cell phone numbers, plus various email addresses or by text messages.
