What is the emergency 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 does the system work?
The system is 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.
Who should register?
All Windsor residents and businesses are strongly encouraged to register. You can sign up here.
What will I receive?
You will receive alerts about emergencies in town, such as flooding, evacuations and severe storms.
In addition, register with the State of Connecticut to receive information about local, regional and statewide emergencies by clicking on the CT Alert button.
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.
