MONTAGUE COUNTY Announces New Communication Options for Residents
Montague, Texas 3/26/2012
The County of Montague is now providing local residents 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 that impacts their lives and their communities, and receive it in the way they choose, by text or email, and, during emergencies, by telephone, as desired.
This new system allows local agencies to offer a variety of information to the people who live and work in their area and who want to be informed of critical emergency information as well as other key information about their community. This is a free service provided by Montague County. This is part of a larger, regional effort made up of several counties around the area.
It is easy to register. Residents simply go to www.co.montague.co.tx.us which leads to the North Texas Regional Communications (NTRC) Registry, where each person can set up preferences on which areas they want information from, depending on where they live and work, and what types of available information they wish to receive. The registry information is managed by the i-INFO system, a highly-secure system that is used by thousands of organizations to manage their information and keep it safe. Likewise, i-INFO allows each resident to securely access and manages their own information.
“We are pleased to be able to provide this new tool to our community members,” said Montague County Judge Tommie Sappington. “It is a cost effective way to meet the changing needs of our citizens while providing them with information they need, when they need it.”
