GREENBURGH, N.Y. - The Greenburgh Police Department has updated its Emergency Notification System to provide the ability to receive messages via cell phone, email or a text message.
Currently, the Emergency Notification System incorporates a Windows-based software package with telephone lines to send out mass notifications of emergencies, to provide critical information or to ask for public help. To add the updated system for cell, phone email or text contact, residents must log on to the Greenburgh website's Emergency Notification page to complete a Contact Information Request Form to add email address or cell phone number.
The service is free to all applicants. The information will be archived by Greenburgh's vendor CityWatch Notification Solutions and will not be shared or used for any other purpose other than an emergency notification.
Greenburgh Chief of Police Joseph J. DeCarlo encouraged residents to use the new system as well as other emergency notification helps as well as pre-planning for emergencies.
"I would also like to emphasize the importance of individual and family pre-planning for a disaster," DeCarlo said in a letter to the community. "Pre-planning guidelines for a “Basic Emergency Supply Kit” for your home, “To-Go Kits” if you must leave your residence and “Family Emergency Plans” can be found on the Town of Greenburgh home page listed under the title Ready Greenburgh."
For more information or questions regarding this system and its usage, please contact the Greenburgh Police Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the IT Unit at 682-5374.
