Nashua set to launch emergency alert system
So far, more than 250 people have already pre-registered for the free CodeRED notification system that will be activated in Nashua in about two weeks, according to Justin Kates, director of emergency management.
According to Kates, every landline phone in Nashua will be automatically subscribed to the alerts, while residents with cell phones will have to subscribe manually.
Citizens will be able to apply to as few or as many alerts as they desire, including police department postings, fire notices, road closures, power outage updates, municipal meetings and more.
“People want to know what is going on in this community. Residents, people who live in neighboring towns and people who work in Nashua want to be informed,” said Kates, who is trying to get the word out now so that as many people as possible will be able to subscribe once the system is activated.
Kates said individuals who pre-register will receive an email from the city notifying them of when the system has been activated later this month, with instructions on how to officially subscribe.
To pre-register for the system, visit www.nashuanh.gov/codered.
