Tolland residents can sign up for the town's latest alert system, Everbridge Aware, in order to receive notifications of town emergencies ranging from weather and police and fire advisories to road closures and winter parking ban notices, according to a release posted on the town's website.
"We are strongly encouraging residents to sign up," said Emergency Management Director and Director of Public Safety John Littell, calling the Everbridge Aware system another tool, like the e-blast system, for the town to reach its residents.
According to the information on the town's site, residents can sign up to receive notices through land lines, cell phones, texts, fax, email and more. Residents and businesses listed in the white pages database will be automatically listed, according to the town website, but residents can withdraw from the system or adjust their preferred method of notification.
