While we don’t always have our pager with us we usually have our phones. There are multiple benefits to receiving emergency alerts via text messaging. Such as being independent from your location, meaning even if you’re on a cruise in the Caribbean alerts will still come in crystal clear. Even within Saratoga Country, especially indoors there are areas where VHF reception isn’t the greatest and alerts are not received or are just static.
This program should never be used as a primary alerting method for your agency. It is meant as a secondary notification method only. Delays in email or text messaging systems can be minutes or hours long. Do not use this program to replace pagers, only to supplement them!
