Honeywell Emergency Alert System May Be Coming to Sparta Residents

The only question seems to be finding the $11,000 in the town budget to pay for the alert system.

If township officials can find a spare $11,000, Sparta residents may be protected in the event of an emergency with an alert system.

That was the question the Sparta Council debated at their Tuesday night council meeting, an issue that has arisen at previous meetings, the Alternative Press reported. The Honeywell Alert System, which has been in use for the town's schools since 2007, is the program the governing body is considering it as an option.

Interim Township Manager Steven Levinson told the council the system can communicate alerts via telephone, cell phone, text and email.

The system would be handled by the township's Emergency Management officials and could also be programmed to have alerts sent to specialized groups, such as residents residing in the Lake Mohawk or Sparta Lake areas, the Alternative Press said.
