Huron County Discontinues Huron Ready Community Notification Program

June 15, 2016

The Huron Ready Community Notification Program is ending effective immediately and its phone and social media services are being discontinued.

Huron Ready has been operating since 2009. However, after conducting a program review, it has been identified that this County service is no longer relevant. With the rising adoption of communication technologies, Huron Ready has become redundant as source agencies responsible for community notifications are now connecting to residents directly using tools like social media.

Over the coming days, one final phone call campaign will be completed to members of the public registered with Huron Ready to notify them that the service is ending. This final call campaign is expected to be completed by the end of this month. A notice will be posted to the Huron Ready Facebook and Twitter accounts to notify followers that the program is ending.

To continue to receive community notifications, residents are advised to consult the following authoritative sources:

  • For road closures, follow the OPP on Twitter at @OPP_COMM_WR
  • For weather alerts, follow Environment Canada @ECAlertON160 (Goderich) or@ECAlertON110 (Wingham)
