City establishes information registry

June 18, 2013

In an emergency situation, few things are as important as having a way to get reliable information and Crossroads residents have a new way to do just that.

Officials with the Big Spring Police Department recently announced the creation of a system that will allow residents to receive critical information about the community by text message or e-mail.

According to Lt. Lance Telchik, director of the support services division for the BSPD, the West Texas Regional Communications Registry will allow residents to receive important and timely messages regarding what is going on in the Crossroads area.

“The city of Big Spring is now providing local residents a way to receive critical and important information about their community,” Telchik said. “In addition to emergency notifications, residents are also invited to sign-up to receive local information which impacts their lives and their communities and receive it in the way they choose, by text message or by e-mail.

“The new system allows local agencies to offer a variety of information to the people who live and work in their area and who want to be informed of critical emergency information, as well as other key information. This is a free service provided by the city of Big Spring and is part of a larger, regional effort made up of several nearby counties.”
