August 27, 2021

ANTIOCH, Ill.— Antioch First Fire Protection District, Antioch Township, and The Village of Antioch have partnered to bring a FREE emergency alert system to residents; Hyper-Reach. This telephone-based mass notification system will be used to inform Antioch residents about local emergencies, hazards and other threats. Hyper-Reach is fully operational and ready for Antioch residents to enroll.

The new emergency system will provide rapid notification of hazardous and urgent situations using a mix of telephone calls, text and email messages, as well as TTY/TDD service for the hearing impaired. The system sends thousands of messages to geographically targeted households in seconds, and simultaneously delivers to a larger audience via social media.

“Our job is to protect the citizens of Antioch as effectively and cost efficiently as possible.” Said Jon Cokefair, Fire Chief, First Fire Protection District Antioch. “We are confident in Hyper-Reach as a strong and secure vendor. This new capability will help protect, inform and safeguard our citizens. Our team is excited about this program.”
The Hyper-Reach service will alert users about weather and environmental hazards, criminal activity, and missing persons. All Antioch residents are encouraged to enroll. There are five simple ways to activate Hyper-Reach:

1.) Scan this QR code:

2.) Visit: http://hyper-reach.com/ilantiochfiresignup.html

3.) Call: 224-267-9966

4.) Text: “alerts” to 224-267-9966

5.) Tell Alexa: “Alexa, enable Hyper-Reach.”

Visitors to the Antioch area can activate Hyper-Reach using the same steps noted above, but they must enter this address when the system asks for a residency address:

“We are proud to partner with Antioch Township and The Village of Antioch to bring this solution forward.
