--- About the Emergency Notification System ---


The Town of Egremont is able to make announcements to townspeople by way of telephone, cell phone, text and email. There are several messages that may be sent to you. Street closures, water issues, meetings and other general informational topics may utilize the system. In an emergency, the system is set up to call all of the numbers you have listed with the Town, along with any email addresses you have registered in the system.

The Town's telephone alert system works by detecting a voice when you answer the phone. After you pick up the phone and say hello, there may be a second or two of 'dead air'. The system will wait after you answer in order to determine if there is an answering machine on the line. The message will begin after that.

If you wish, the system can send an email or text message to you. It can also call your cell phone or VOIP type telephone (through your television or computer if you have that service).

The important thing to know is that you must register the other means of contact with the Town; the system only has access to regular listed landline telephone numbers; it cannot detect unlisted numbers. It also cannot get VOIP or cell phone numbers, nor can it determine email addresses. Those must be manually entered into the system.

If you would like to change or add your information into the system, please send an email to wbrinker(AT)egremont-ma(DOT)gov or call with the pertinent contact numbers and email addresses.


If you have any questions about the alert system, please drop us an email or call us and we will be happy to answer them.
