The city of New Haven is getting ready for hurricane season.
New Haven is launching a new, expanded version of its emergency alert and notification system.
Residents within a 2,500 foot diameter of any dangerous emergency incident will now be sent an alert by phone, text, or email.
The goal is to provide up-to-date, critical emergency safety information firsthand. The expansion comes just in time for the start of hurricane season, which begins June 1.
