How does it work?
The process begins when the Town of Greenwich issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Greenwich Alerts will then send a message through your primary contact path. A contact path is a way the system can contact you. You can select to be called on your home phone, cell phone, text message, email or through the EverBridge app. You can select one or all paths that you prefer to be contacted on. If you don't confirm receipt of the message, the system will try to reach your second contact path. The system will use the multiple contact paths that you established to reach you until you confirm receipt.
The success of this service relies on YOU. Having your latest contact information is the only way to ensure that we can contact you in an emergency.
The Greenwich Emergency Management Department, a collaboration between Greenwich Emergency Medical Services and the Town of Greenwich, will help the community prepare for emergencies through outreach and training, assisting our First Responders during the response to large-scale emergencies and disasters, and will help to recover quickly after any wide-scale event.
