Although CityWatch is not a new program, it is new to many of us! An excerpt from a Newaygo County Administration newsletter in 2008 explains it best. "City-Watch System - An Alert and Notification System which gives emergency officials the capability to send emergency inforamtion to pre-designated call lists and the general public quickly, accurately, and automatically via phone, text messaging, fax, pager, and email. The new system has additional capabilities which the old system, purchased in 2000, did not. The new system is connected to 12 other CityWatch Systems in surrounding counties, which increases calling capacity during emergency situations. Currently, the public notification list is programmed utilizing 9-1-1 database information provided by the phone companies, which does not include cell phones or unlisted numbers, but soon residents will be able to register via a website or CityWatch Registry postcard, to ensure that officials have accurate contact information to notify you during an emergency."
While CityWatch is not affiliated with the City of Grant, a number of our residents have received numerous calls with specific alert messages and have subsequently contacted their local officials to find out more information. Because of these calls and questions, we wanted to share information with you about this program and what it is intended to accomplish. After receiving a pre-recorded CityWatch message, please direct any questions to the number provided at the end of the call, and do not call the Newaygo County Central Dispatch! It is important to point out that at this time, residents are not yet able to register to be included on the CityWatch list. The intention is to be able to do this at some point in time, just not currently.
