September is National Preparedness Month

September is recognized as National Preparedness Month (NPM) which serves as a reminder that we all must take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work, and also where we visit.

The City of New Rochelle encourages all residents to sign up for emergency alerts through our New Ro Alert messaging system. Right now, the calling system uses published phone numbers. Through the portal, residents can customize their preferred message delivery options which include text, email and/or multiple phone numbers, including office and cell.

“The New Ro Alert messaging system is the backbone of our citywide communication effort, for emergency notification as well as community updates and neighborhood outreach like road work and utility outages,” said Deputy City Manager Omar Small. “By customizing your profile, you can choose a call, text or email. We urge all residents, businesses, and employees in New Rochelle to sign up and create a personal account today.”

The City posts updates on a variety of social media channels as well, including Facebook (@CityofNewRochelle), Twitter (@NewRochelleNY), Instagram (@NewRochelleNY) and Nextdoor (City of New Rochelle). And on the City website, users can customize their subscriptions to newsflashes, calendars and the City’s new bi-weekly e-newsletter. The City’s website can be translated into a variety of languages using the “translate” button at the top of the home page.
