“During a crisis or other emergency situation, communicating clear, timely messages is essential to maintain safety,” said Michael E. Shanley, acting director of Emergency Communications. “Minutes count in an emergency and overcoming a language barrier can have a huge impact in relaying information as quickly as possible.”
Residents are urged to sign up online at the City’s website to be notified by the City of Worcester in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts.
Alerts can be sent to cell phones, home phones or via email. Residents can choose how they want to receive notifications.
Those that already have an ALERTWorcester account can simply login online and change their language preferences. For residents that called in to sign up or filled out a form must call the City’s Customer Service Center at 508-929-1300 for assistance with a change in language preference.
