Schools and *Be Alert*

The Charlevoix, Cheboygan, and Emmet Office of Emergency Management is pleased to offer schools in our area access to our newly updated Emergency Notification System. This is available to eligible schools to fill communication gaps between the schools, parents, and staff. For participating schools, parents and teachers will be able to subscribe to alerts the school sends out informing them of school closings and emergent situations. Gone are the phone trees of the past! This service is provided free of charge to schools and parents in Charlevoix, Cheboygan, and Emmet Counties. Each parent manages their own account, keeping administrative tasks low on school staff. The system provides:

~ A delivery method for emergency messages

~Improved day to day communications

~Support high volume communications

~Share situational intelligence

~Conference Bridging

~Two way notifications

Attention School Administrators!

If your school is interested in hearing more about the *Be Alert* Notification System, please let us know some basic information and we’ll be happy to assist!
