The FlashAlert system distributes emergency messages, such as breaking news or weather closure information, and news releases from participating organizations.
Newswire provides information to the media for broadcast and web display. In addition, each member organization has its own web page where the public can see their closure status and latest news.
Messenger allows the public to subscribe to the messages posted on Newswire, receiving the information as emails, "push notifications" through a free phone app, text messages, Facebook or Twitter. There is no cost to the public for viewing the information or subscribing to messages.
