LorainCounty recently implemented a wireless
emergency notification system (WENS), which is sometimes referred to as a
reverse 911.† With this, the county,
or any political subdivision (City, Township, etc.) can issue warnings or
emergency information, such as weather alerts, boil alerts, and so
forth.† It should prove to be a useful
tool that can disseminate information to a target group very quickly.

Many of you may have seen the news release about K.E.Y. (Keystone
Empowers You).† The goal of the KEY
Collaborative is to increase access to physical activity and healthy foods
leading to a Keystone School District community where the healthy choice is
the easiest choice for seniors, school-aged children, parents, adults, and
individuals who work for a Keystone community employer.†
While it references the Keystone School District, itís
only connection is that it is using the school district to define the
geographical area that the collaboration entails.
Some of the projects that stem from KEY, that you might notice, will be
healthier choices at the concession stands and improvements to the Penfield
walking trail at the recreation park.
These signs are available to residents at no charge and
make it much easier for emergency personnel to locate your home.† If you would like one, contact any of
your trustees, The South Lorain County Ambulance District, or The
Wellington Fire Department.
Pass this information on to anyone within the township who needs one of these signs.
