Meeting History

Dec 21, 2017 3:00 PM  Public Safety Committee Regular Meeting

Mr. Shurtleff said several months ago former County Administrator, Joe Mareane, brought forward a proposal to move forward with an emergency notification system. It was developed through conversations with the Tompkins County Council of Governments and discussions that took place with municipalities during the exploration of shared services. Mr. Shurtleff said the project incorporates all aspects of the Reverse 911 system that they were looking for. He said Christina Dravis took the lead on this emergency notification project that the Legislature voted a few months ago to move forward with. He introduced Chaz Garrity, a representative of Swift Reach who provided the corporate overview of the New Jersey-based company and demonstration of the web-based and mobile Switf911 mass communication system.
