Reverse 911 System Too Costly, Thompson Says

Justin Thompson, Fulton County Emergency Management Agency director, said county officials would like to establish a Reverse 911 system, “but money is an issue.”

In case of an emergency, such as weather warning, Reverse 911 systems can issue text messages, send emails, or make telephone calls to county residents.

“It’s another awareness tool; another way to get the notification out,” Thompson said.

Similar warnings are available through the websites of local television stations.

“That stuff’s out there for free,” he said.

Thompson said county offi cials had looked at Reverse 911 systems, but found them to be too expensive.
