Community Alert.

Ballinakill Community Alert remind people that the text service is to be used to alert everybody in the community to any suspicious behaviour in the area and to make people more aware. For every one text that is sent out by someone approximately another 450 are sent out on the system. This system is not free to run and we would appreciate if people would refrain from replying to texts that may be sent out in error and are not in any way related to what the system was originally set up for. When used properly this system is hugely beneficial to the community. Thank you for your co-operation.
