In Wake of Connecticut Shooting, Where Can Moon, Robinson Residents Sign Up for Reverse 911 Alerts?

Emergency notification systems are available for Moon and Robinson residents.

 

At the scene of a shocking shooting at a Newton, CT, elementary school, officials were able to reunite parents with their children with the help of a reverse 911 alert that notified parents of the shooting.

Moon Township residents can sign up at this link for the community's SwiftReach911, a reverse notification system that alerts specific people or areas of an emergency in their community.

SwiftReach911 was recently used to help find a man suffering from Alzheimer's in Moon Township, who wandered from his home.

All calls you receive from SwiftReach911 will display "Moon Township" or "Moon Township Police" in the caller ID, according to the police department's website.

Moon residents can click here to sign up for the alerts. A name, address and phone number are required.

Both the Montour School District and Moon Area School District offer Alert Now, an automated calling system designed to notify parents and guardians of everything from school closings to sudden emergencies.

Parents are encouraged to notify school districts if their phone number changes, according to both school websites.

Montour also offers the "Spartan Text" system, which will send alerts to mobile devices.

The only time I get alerts from the Moon reverse notification system is to tell me when garbage collection days are changed, hardly an emergency. I did not get a notification when the elderly man got lost, even though I live right next to where he was found.
