The City of Helena has a new emergency alert system

Posted: Updated:
HELENA - AL -  People in Helena are urged to sign up for the new emergency alert system. It will deliver emergency and non-emergency information to residents' cell phones.

Any important information from the city, including the police and fire departments, will be pushed through the Blackboard MY Connect app. That includes messages about any emergencies, water or power outages, and road closures. People can decide whether they want to receive all the messages or just emergency information.
 
The free app is available for Apple and Android users. For more information or to sign up, go to the City of Helena's website.

The city will be testing the system this week.
