New alert system for first responders implemented

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) has implemented a new alert system to notify first responders of incidents.

The Active 911 system application has been installed and tested on communications devices for volunteer fire departments and emergency medical personnel during the past week. It can send messages to cell phones, tablets and desk top devices. It will be utilized in conjunction with the current radio communications. For more details about this new system, see the Aug. 3 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
