New Public Alert System

Featured Article

Garrard County Emergency Management Agency and CSEPP are implementing a new public alert system, Regroup. Regroup will allow public safety agencies in Garrard County and the City of Lancaster to notify the public about dangers, events and other public safety matters that may affect the public. Users can enter in multiple phone numbers, e-mail addresses and street addresses in order to get alerts that are specific to where they live and work.

Residents and businesses that registered through the CodeRED system will need to register again under the new Regroup system.

The form can be found at http://www.garrardema.com/emergency-management/regroup/
