New Community Message Alert Service

Kildare County Council, in partnership with An Garda Síochána (through the County Kildare Joint Policing Committee) are launching a new county wide service to replace the old Text Alert service. The service will be operated by Muintir na Tíre.

The new service will offer exciting new features through the use of a mobile app and a web portal, but will still retain a facility for text (SMS) alerts where required. It is expected the ease of use will lead to a much higher level of alerts being issued. There will be no cost to groups or users as funding for the service has been provided by the elected members of each municipal district from local property tax.

Groups will be required to register for the new service and full training and information will be provided by Muintir na Tíre. An information evening for all interested Text Alert groups will be held shortly with details to be provided.

Further information is available from Muintir na Tíre at bealert@muintir.ie or (062) 51163.
