Young County is now providing local resident with a way to receive critical and important information about their community.
In addition to emergency notifications, residents are invited to sign up to receive local information by text or e-mail. This new system allows local agencies to offer a variety of information to the people who live and work in the area and who want to be informed of critical emergency information as well as other key information. This is a free service provided by the county.
This is part of a larger, regional effort made up of several counties around the area.
It is very easy to register for the service. Each person can set up preferences on which areas they want information from depending on where they live and work, and why type of information they want to receive.
