AUTAUGA CO., AL (WSFA)- Autaugua County and Prattville have a new mobile app to keep residents informed.
City and county agencies will be able to instantly notify citizens of dangers and emergencies through the ping4alerts! app.
The app is available to the public in the iPhone app store and the Google Play Store.
Monthly alerts will be sent out for weather siren testing and possibly public meetings.
"The County had a need and after assessing several solutions, Ping4Alerts! was the most feature-rich, allowed multiple agencies to use it concurrently, and was the most cost-effective," Autauga EMA Director Ernie Baggett said. "We are especially proud to be the first agencies in the State of Alabama to implement this service."
