    This report indicates that the city’s public information officer used several methods to inform the public regarding a boil water notice.
    However it has not gone unnoticed by us that the report is completely silent regarding the dates and times those alleged notifications occurred. Hopefully this is not just a smoke-and-mirrors P.R. report to cover-up the city’s anemic public notification response about the emergency. We have been told that the information officer was not even available that day until after 4:PM
    It would help with the city’s credibility if a new revised report could be more specific on who initiated the calls, and the exact times those notifications to the several media sources and the county’s reverse 911 agency occurred.

    Greg, Joe,
    I had sent this information out before. As Chief Pozzo’s report describes you must register a cell or VOIP cable phone. The Sheriff’s department communications center has the link on their page. Unfortunately they do not have a way to test R911 you have to go and register to see if you are already listed. I was one who had registered before the change of vendor and was not called as my data was gone.
    The place to register is at this link http://volusiasheriff.org/communications/ you will have to click the Important Links tab and then Reverse 911 Info then the TFCC box on the top right. Not the simplest thing but that is how it is for now.
