The Tompkins County Department of Emergency Response announced the launch of the county’s new emergency notification system.
The Tompkins County Safety and Incident Real-Time Emergency Notifications (SIREN) program is available to all county residents, according to Ithaca Voice. The SIREN program replaces the Swift911 notification system, which the county previously used to send alerts related to potentially hazardous situations like weather, traffic, public health, and other emergencies.
SIREN sends alerts through text, phone calls, and emails. Those who were in enrolled in the Swift911 program will be automatically enrolled in SIREN. Residents who wish to register can do so by texting SIREN to 67283 or registering through this webpage.
