VT-Alert is a new all-hazards emergency alerting and notification system, provided to all citizens for use by the Vermont Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. 

The web-based program allows for citizens to receive real-time emergency messages and instructions from local and state officials via a variety of mechanisms, including text message, e-mail, land-line telephone, and cellular phone.

Recently, the Town of Putney adopted VT-Alert as its primary means to provide mass notification and instruction to those who register for the service.

The Town of Putney will disseminate information and specific guidance, as warranted, regarding road closures, severe weather warnings and issues, hazardous conditions, and many other emergency circumstances. 

In order for this service to have the best possible impact, the Town of Putney and the Putney Fire Department strongly urge everyone to register for this crucial service. In order to register, visit www.vtalert.gov , and enter the “Sign up for VT Alerts” tab. 

If anyone would like more information, or would like assistance in establishing their account, please contact Town Manager Cynthia Stoddard, or Fire Chief Thomas Goddard.
