Aaron Freeman, Deputy Director, provided an excellent and most enlightening presentation regarding the “behind the scenes” monitoring and communication which takes place in the event of an emergency in our community. One of the topics discussed was the Gilmer County Citizen Alert Program which allows for community members to receive alerts in the event of various emergences. This program is open to all Gilmer county residents and you can sign up here: https://member.everbridge.net/index/892807736721474 . Be selective as to which alerts you want to receive.
