Gillespie County and the City of Fredericksburg introduced a new service in Year 2013 designed to keep our citizens aware of emergency conditions. I-Info is an emergency notification system that will allow Public Safety Communications or Emergency Management to quickly notify Gillespie County and City of Fredericksburg citizens of an emergency that may affect their area. Only residents who sign up to receive the messages will be contacted.
By registering, Gillespie County will be able to send time-sensitive, targeted messages to select groups and geographic areas via emails, text messages or phone calls.
Citizens are encouraged to register methods of contact, such as home phone, cellular phone, and VoIP numbers, and email addresses. It is very important that citizens register all of their contact numbers to ensure that they do not miss any critical emergency notifications. You can change your selections or remove yourself from the registry by logging in and changing your selections at any time.
The primary use of the system will be to disseminate messages pertaining to the health, safety or welfare of Gillespie County citizens and property when affected by a perceived, emerging, or imminent emergency event. With the emergency alert system, Gillespie County will be able to send emergency notifications for situations such as flash flood warnings, tornado warnings, water contamination alerts, chemical spills, and missing persons.
