Sign Up For Emergency Notification System

From Mayor’s Office:

City of Bridgeport Emergency Operations Center Director Scott Appleby is encouraging residents to sign up for BPTAlerts ahead of the winter season and the first snow storm impacts Bridgeport. BPTAlerts is an emergency notification system that provides information on severe weather, power outages, storm response, utility outages, public health crisis, and city office closures.

“It’s important that residents have access to accurate, up-to-date information and it’s equally important that we, as City officials, take a moment to let residents know how to stay connected” stated Director Appleby. “Staying informed should be a part of each of our emergency preparedness plans and I encourage every Bridgeport resident to gain direct access to critical notifications by signing up for these alerts.”

  1. Director Appleby is informing me of a new service to residents? It is called BPTAlerts. Is it a system build from something we already own, have developed or subscribe to and therefore has no expense to pay annually or more frequently? What is the expense, if any, that this article has not shared with us? What type of “critical notifications” are routine? Has a City Council committee reviewed such new programing and offered an opinion? How many folks have signed up already? WHAT EXPENSE IF ANY IS THE CITY SIGNED UP FOR? WHAT DOES TIME TELL US?
