September is National Preparedness Month, a month that focuses on the importance of making a plan with friends and family about what to do and how to communicate when there's an emergency.
The first step: Make a family emergency communication plan. To get started, you should make sure all household members are able to receive alerts about emergencies from local officials.
Hudson residents are notified of emergency situations through the CodeRED Emergency Alert System, a high-speed telephone service. The system allows Hudson safety officials to send recorded messages to the entire community, or a specific area, within minutes. These messages will inform residents of the current situation and give instructions for action. It also will send text messages to cell phones that are registered in the system. The CodeRED system delivers messages to a live person, an answering machine, or voice mail to ensure you are adequately informed.
The City also uses the Notify Me Alert Center to send out emergency information, such as snow parking bans, boil alerts, significant weather events, and more. Each member of your family should register their emails for the Notify Me Alert Center and cell phones for the CodeRed System to make sure everyone will be informed if there is an emergency.
Additional ways to be informed during an emergency and links to the notification system sign-ups are available here. Visit ready.gov to learn how to make your family emergency communication plan. “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.”
