What is the issue?
Currently, most communities rely on social media platforms to send information to community members which works but relies on all or most being online at that time. Sentinel allows authorized people (Chief and EM Coordinators) the option to send alert messages over landlines, email, cell phone, or usually preferred text messages depending on the severity of the alert.
Why is this an issue?
The Chiefs currently do not have the ability to pass along information to the community residents instantly and rely on community members passing or sharing information. There is also the threat of messages being misread or misinterpreted by others who are trying to pass on good information.
