A warning can sometimes make a world of difference when faced with real emergency situations. GwdToday wants to help our viewers be informed immediately when dangerous situations occur in and around Greenwood.
GwdToday’s E-Text Alert system is designed to delivery only serious emergency alerts straight to your mobile phone. GwdToday Publisher Patrick Moore says that mobile alerts are the most important method of reaching residents in the event of a major emergency.
“Everyone usually has their mobile phone by their side all the time,” Moore said. “This is the best way to deliver emergency messages”.
According to Moore, the only alerts that will be sent using this method are alerts that are very serious and pose an immediate threat to residents in the Greenwood and Lakelands area, including tornado warnings, train derailments involving chemical leaks or dangerous crime situations that cause public threats.
“We want to make sure this system is for serious emergencies” added Moore. “Hopefully this system is not used but, if needed, GwdToday wants everyone to know if they get this alert, then it’s serious and they should immediately read the message.”
