Swanzey Announces RAVE Alert to Keep Community Informed During Emergency Situations
The Town of Swanzey is excited to announce that a new emergency notification system called RAVE is now available to all residents and property owners. RAVE is a free service that allows individuals to sign up for notifications sent from state and local authorities. RAVE will keep members of the Swanzey community informed on potentially hazardous situations involving weather, traffic and other emergencies.
RAVE enables members of the Swanzey community to sign up for free to receive timely and actionable emergency alerts via email, text or voice message at the following link: https://www.smart911.com/smart911/ref/reg.action?pa=swanzeynh.
Swanzey residents and travelers can also download the Smart911 app to sign up for RAVE to receive key information needed in an emergency. The Smart911 app provides enhanced functionality by sending targeted alerts based on the user’s location. Smart911 app users will receive the highest priority National Weather Service alerts including tornado warnings, flash flood warnings, and severe thunderstorm warnings based on their real-time location. Download the Smart911 App on the Apple Store or Google Play or by texting “Smart911” to 67283.
“The Town encourages all members of our community to sign up for RAVE in order to receive important information leading up to and during emergency situations,” said Town Administrator Michael Branley. “When the Town or State has important info, you will have it by signing up for RAVE.”
