Public Information & Warning: By The Numbers
Most people want information, and they want it now. Fortunately, we live in a time when instant information is possible. In addition to getting information, many are willing to provide information about themselves on social media channels, including photos and videos, but when it comes to emergency preparedness, they would rather do nothing, or opt-out of the emergency notification process, claiming a need for privacy.
There are many ways to receive notifications/warnings including: cell phones, landline phones, text messages, websites, social media, etc. But to be effective, people must opt-in to receive most messages. Here’s the count in Sandy City:
Total Sandy residents
Residents signed up for Sandy CityServe Application notifications
Resident email subscribers to the Sandy website
Residents subscribed to Sandy City social media sites
Residents subscribed to Nextdoor.com
Getting information is easy. If you’re not subscribed to any of these options, go to CITIZEN CONNECT and select the best choice to meet your notification needs.
