Due to power outages related to Tropical Storm Irene the Town of Hopkinton Emergency Management Group identified a need to enhance emergency notifications capability to our citizens. The ability to communicate through emails and phones calls was very limited in areas affected by the power outages. We encourage all of our families to log onto the CodeRed link on the web sites identified in this release and insure your ability to receive text messages on your cell phones is confirmed. During an emergency, or prolonged severe weather event, these devices can be kept charged utilizing vehicle charger systems. The Hopkinton Emergency Management Group will continue to share critical event information with the community via the CodeRed emergency notification systems ability to geographically target text and email messages to citizens through the use of the CodeRED high-speed notification solution.

To ensure your text and email addresses are in the database, log onto the Fire Department website or the Town website and follow the CodeRed link. Those without Internet access may call 508-435-0555 Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm. Required information includes a street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes) for location purposes and a primary phone number. To receive email and text messages, individuals will also need to provide cell phone carrier information.

Thank you for your continued cooperation.

Fire Chief / Emergency Management Director Ken Clark
