County implements early warning system

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Citizens can go to www.rogerscounty.org and find a red link at the bottom of the homepage. By clicking the link, they can begin the sign up process. Each screen will guide them through the steps including the selection of what type of alerts they wish to receive.
Additional options are included to select notifications of concern, including everything from roadwork to storm warnings.
Citizens also have the option to enter a geographical area they may be concerned about, according to Stokes.
The system allows users to have a unique user name and password as well as add other family members to their account.
Parents can add their child’s cell phone number if they want them to receive alerts, Stokes said.
It is a tier notice contacting people in several attempts if needed, and is similar to notification systems currently used by Claremore Public Schools and the City of Claremore, he added.
Once users sign up, they will have access online to modify or cancel their account at anytime.
For citizens that do not have internet access or would like assistance signing up, call Stokes at (918) 923-4458.
