In addition to those “go to” sources, make sure to sign up for services that send you important information. One such service is WestonAlerts, the official emergency notification system used by the Town of Weston and Weston Public Schools enabling Town Officials to quickly communicate with residents during emergencies.
By entering notification preferences in WestonAlerts, residents can get Weston-specific emergency news through their phone or email of choice. The Town can only preload it with landlines, so most people will want to sign in to add cell phone and email information to their account as well.
For non-emergency information, also be sure to sign up for relevant topics, like Public Safety News or Latest Town News, at westonma.gov/stayinformed. The more you know, the better!
In support of the ongoing dissemination of useful knowledge, the Weston Emergency Reserve Corps has also just launched a WERC Facebook page! Our goal is to post regularly about preparedness topics, WERC activities and events, and other information relevant to all in the Weston area.
Watch for more information coming next week, and join us on Facebook in the meantime.
