Good timing: The city of West Hollywood recently announced—pre-temblor—that its city council approved a two-year contract for a community alerting system, or a "Reverse 911" with a national notification network (3N). From the release: "3N will provide a mass notification system, or community alerting and emergency notification system. Community alerting systems can be used in both normal and emergency situations to send out automated messages on behalf of a City to its residents. These messages can send public safety information, or even non-emergency public notices. Mass notification systems can target a geographic area and send out messages via telephone, fax and e-mail. The City of West Hollywood plans to utilize a mass notification system to alert residents of street closures, evacuations, emergencies or other public safety events impacting the community."
