EASTON — Fire Chief and Emergency Management Director Kevin Partridge is encouraging residents and business owners to sign up for the CodeRED community notification system, which sends important alerts and time-sensitive messages to those who are enrolled in the program.

“As the town’s Emergency Management Director, I would like to see all of our residents signed up for these notifications,” Chief Partridge said. “With winter now upon us, there will be snowstorms, and with storms comes the potential for power outages and the need to open a shelter. CodeRED allows for residents to get important updates in a timely fashion.”
Additionally, residents and visitors can keep track of alerts in town with the CodeRED Mobile App, which notifies smartphone users of real-time alerts in the area.
