The City has implemented a new alert system that all residents can take advantage of to receive emergency messages or pertinent information about Westwood business that you need to know.  

The registry is free for all residents and can handle any amount of contact data from each household in the form of e-mail, telephone messages and/or cell phone text messages.  

Each person or family can choose to sign up for the service and include as many or as few contact options as you wish.  The system will maintain your privacy and you will only receive messages from the City Commissioners in times of public need.  

Some examples of messages you might receive would be to alert you of a City road closure or detour, downed power lines or water breaks, weather-related changes to City events or monthly reminders for Commissioner meetings.  This system is an excellent way to make sure that you stay informed of major developments which may effect you.

You can register on-line with a simple 3-5 minute process by going to:  www.reachalert.com and using the "Create an Account" box.

Please contact your City Commissioner if you have any questions or need assistance!
