The small mid-Missouri town of Hallsville, MO made history on Saturday, December 11, 2004. They became the first town in the nation to implement the new Emergency Alert Response System which became active as of 12/11/2004.
With the Hallsville police Department, Boone County Fire Department and Boone County Ambulance services all with transmitters, the town is ready to go. The installation of the free transmitters will help in reducing the number of emergency vehicle accidents that are occuring everywhere. This town is proud to be the first to implement the system.
The Boone County R-IV School district came right on board by placing receivers in all of their school buses making the trips to and from school safer for the children.
"Today was history in the making," stated Connie McBroom co-inventor of E.A.R.S. "Safety Day made this event memorable and exciting." Other towns are already in contact with E.A.R.S. to hope to get the system in their town. "Communities need to remember that the transmitters are free to all emergency services that would like them. All you have to do is contact us and we will work with the emergency services." McBroom says.
Any town interested in receiving the new E.A.R.S. system or would like more information can contact them at 888-432-8674 for more information.
This system has never been implemented anywhere in the world and Hallsville is proud to be the first.
