The City of Huron Announces New Interactive Emergency Preparedness and Notification Solution Enhancing Citizen and Government Communication When It Matters Most
City of Huron, SD, 12/7/15 On December 1, 2015 the City of Huron officially launched its new emergency preparedness and mass notification services for citizens, sd-huron.civicready.com. The City partnered with CivicReady to create this new site. CivicReady is an expert in helping local governments engage communities in emergency preparedness to provide them with official and direct mass communication in emergency situations.
This emergency communication tool and website allows the City to communicate with citizens quickly and efficiently before, during and after an emergency. Citizens can be reached through the website, email, text messaging, and voice calls about weather, Snow Alerts, safety, street closings, city service announcements and cancellations. FEMA-sourced emergency preparedness content is easily accessible to citizens to keep your community informed in the event of an emergency.
Those who previously signed up with E-Alerts using their email address are already in the new system and can login to modify their preferences for alerts. Those who signed with E-Alerts using a cell phone number are also in the new system and may contact the City to update their preferences and add additional information.
With the new website and emergency communication system, the City will be able to increase its community engagement and be better prepared in the event of an emergency.
We encourage all citizens to visit our new website, sd-huron.civicready.com today and enter their contact information along with specific notification preferences. Please be sure to enter a valid address so you are contacted when your area is being affected. Confirm your subscription immediately after by checking your email. In the event of an emergency this will allow the city to immediately notify citizens of an event.
