The Town of New Canaan is launching a new emergency notifications service platform called Everbridge.
The Everbridge platform will enable the Town to alert residents about a variety of events, ranging from severe weather, power outages, missing persons and other emergencies, to more routine and targeted announcements, such as road closures, road repaving and utility maintenance on particular streets.
First Selectman Kevin Moynihan commented: “Our ability to communicate with all residents in emergencies like the COVID pandemic and weather events like Tropical Storm ISAIAS is critical. We are pre-registering in Everbridge all town residents for whom we have contact information, and any resident will now be able to update their contact information and preferences easily online. We encourage any resident who has not been receiving emergency notifications to go to the Town website to register at www.newcanaan.info/everbridge.”
