In this episode of "This Week in the City", Mayor Dean Esposito is joined by Emergency Management and Emergency Medical Services Director Matthew Cassavechia to remind residents to sign up for the Danbury ALERT communications platform.
Danbury ALERT is the City of Danbury's new mass notification system powered by the Everbridge platform. Sign-up to receive time-sensitive emergency and community alerts. You can select multiple delivery methods such as email, text, phone, the Everbridge mobile app, and more! Messages will be sent to wherever you specify on a priority basis to ensure you receive the vital information you need. This system enables us to provide you with critical information quickly for a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, and water main breaks. You will also be able to opt-in to community alerts and other general, non-emergency notifications.
If you were a previous subscriber to the City of Danbury alerts through Smart911, you should re-register with Everbridge to manage your information and ensure that you receive location-specific messages to your email, cell phone, or private landline.
When you sign-up, you will be able to subscribe to:
* Emergency Notifications (Required)
* Community Notifications (Such as events, and non-weather/emergency alerts from the Mayor)
* Public Health Notices (Non-emergency)
* Public Works Notices (Non-emergency)
* System Tests
