Update on New Mass Notification System Effort

Update 2/3/2022 – Camden County Commission Clerk Rowland Todd received three bids by the posted timestamp, two were received after the timestamp and those two will not be considered. Camden County Emergency Management Director Sam Henley is reviewing the three bid proposals and will meet with the Camden County Commission next week to come to a decision. The decision will be posted here and the company awarded the bid will begin providing mass notification services to Camden County thereafter. The contract with Everbridge Nixle will NOT be renewed for Camden County.

IN THE MEANTIME:

RESIDENTS CAN STILL TEXT 65020 TO 888777 TO CONTINUE RECEIVING EMERGENCY AND OTHER CAMDEN COUNTY ALERTS TO THEIR PHONES.
