For several months now Marion County officials have wanted to create a Facebook page to keep residents up to date on what's going on throughout the county, and keep incidents from getting out of control. As of this week, it's finally a reality.

Wednesday, at the Marion County commission meeting, the 911 Director explained that they will be utilizing the new Facebook page as a "two-way street". They will be be posting information from you as events unfold, as well as posting their own alerts.

"If there is a warning of something they do and they want it to be posted we do that, but if there are rumors around about public safety about something that's happening, we want to be able to give them the facts where they don't have to worry about postings that are incorrect."
McIntyre told 5 News the page will not take the place of the conventional form of public notification in the event of an emergency.
