MEMA encourages all residents to use their cellphones to receive emergency alerts and warnings. Many residents of the Concord neighborhood that was hit by a tornado on Monday August 22nd were awoken before the tornado hit by emergency alerting systems on their cellphones. The advance warning allowed those residents to move to safety within their homes before the tornado hit. Learn more about Wireless Emergency Alerts & our Massachusetts Alerts free smartphone app.
Know Your Hurricane Evacuation Zone
MEMA encourages residents to "Know Your Zone" by learning whether your home, business, or vacation destination is in a Hurricane Evacuation Zone. These hurricane evacuation zones were recently featured in a FOX 25 segment on hurricane evacuations. For additional information, visit MEMA's hurricane preparedness webpage.
This important access program will allow local and state public safety leaders to facilitate entry of credentialed members of the private sector into areas that are otherwise off limits to the public because of disaster or emergency conditions. To learn more and enroll, visit www.ceas.com/ma.
