The #CabCoAlert service allows authorized County leaders to rapidly disseminate time–sensitive messages. These messages go to every phone number and email address in the database. They can be received as phone calls, emails, text messages and/or phone apps. With this service, authorized users can send thousands of messages in minutes. Only authorized officials can access to the system.
