Pittsburgh Municipality Mt. Lebanon Launches Free Online Public Alert System
Sometimes we find a service that just needs mentioning. Pittsburgh’s Mount Lebanon Borough with Phoenix Business Technologies Group (a Pittsburgh company) has launched a fantastic product. The LeboALERT is designed to notify residents of Mt Lebanon and surrounding communities of all sorts of things; from the mundane to the extraordinary.
Cutting edge technology allows for a very simple set up process via the Internet. We signed up for free and it took all of 3 minutes. Options include delivery by text message, email, phone, and a few other methods.
Residents from other surrounding communities such as Upper St. Clair, Scott Township, Castle Shannon, Dormont, Bridgeville, and Carnegie can also sign up for free. This public service was designed for the safety and convenience of the Mt. Lebanon community and surrounding boroughs and townships.
We would not be surprised to see many others jump on board with their own systems once the word gets out. Our vision would be to have all of our neighborhoods linked together sharing information in an emergency situation. Empowering residents with timely information is a sign of good government and this is definitely an example of that.
It has always been a practice of Blackball Online to inform and educate our readers and we wanted to share this with you. We hope you didn’t mind the free info even if it is slightly off our usual topics.
