The Clark County Emergency Management Agency is encouraging residents to sign up for its countywide emergency alert system as it wraps up National Preparedness Month.

“There’s nothing more important than being prepared in the event of an emergency,” said Clark County EMA Director Michelle Clements-Pitstick in a Board of Clark County Commissioners press release. “It’s critically important for all residents to sign up for local alerts to be aware about what’s going on around you.”

Clark County uses Hyper-Reach, a mass notification system that allows the county to telephone, text and email all or targeted areas of Clark County in the event of emergencies or community alerts. In recent months, Hyper-Reach has been used to notify residents of inclement weather, law enforcement situations and missing person alerts, the press release stated.

To sign up for Hyper-Reach, log on to ClarkCountyOhio.gov or visit the following link: http://hyper-reach.com/ohclarksignup.html

National Preparedness Month in September is an annual observance to remind residents to be prepared for disasters and emergencies.
