COMMUNITY & EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM:  

The Town of Westwood uses CodeRed (a product of OnSolve) to stay connected with its residents. They collect publicly available contacts and phone numbers. Clicking on the link below allows you to provide additional contact information. We normally send out an email version of any announcement to resident's email addresses, which normally has more detail, since we try to keep any calls sent out to under a minute.

You can also use this form to opt out of receiving calls, or choose any of the groups we are setting up for special notifications.

 

There are two kinds of notifications. General notices will go to the primary telephone number only, emergency notifications will go to all contact numbers, and an email will be sent with a clickable link to the message.

 

Download the Mobile App today!  Westwood can now push through notifications of all calls being sent out to your phone.  Download the CodeRed app today on iTunes or Google Play.  This is a great tool to have in case you miss the message or delete it by mistake.  The information provide through the app will be there until the Town removes it.
