Emergency and Community News Notification System
What is the emergency and community news alert program?
This service allows you to sign up to get alerts on your cell phone, work phone, text message, e-mail, home phone, and more. You can also choose the locations you want to be contacted about. You can receive notifications about emergencies that may affect your home, your parents' home, your workplace, and your child's school, as long as those locations are within the boundaries of the town.
How will the system work?
The system will be used to notify residents about imminent threats to health and safety. Public safety officials will send alerts about emergencies such as severe weather, floods, gas leaks, or critical police activity. If you opt in to receive community news alert, you will receive important news only about those town services and facilities.
Who should register?
All Windsor residents and businesses are strongly encouraged to register using the link below.
What will I receive?
You will receive alerts about emergencies in town, such as flooding, evacuations and severe storms. Also, opt-in to receive important community alerts, such as road closures, crime trends and health clinics.
In addition, register with the State of Connecticut (www.ctalert.gov) to receive information about local, regional and statewide emergencies.
Why should I register?
The state and the town only have limited abilities to immediately get urgent information to you if an emergency occurs.
What if I do not have a traditional telephone landline?
Traditional telephone landlines are already entered into the town and the state' s systems, but cell phones, email addresses and other communication tools are not included. Register these devices by signing up on BOTH links below to be certain to get critical information quickly. You can also choose to register more than one address in town, so you can get information about situations that are affecting your child' s daycare center, your elderly parents' home or your workplace.
