The Town of Avon is committed to providing residents with up-to-date information, including but not limited to, COVID-related events, storm preparations, emergencies, and other general information. Below are three ways to make sure that you stay up-to-date when weather and other emergencies strike.
SUBSCRIBE TO TOWN NEWS - To receive regular updates about Town business, “Subscribe to Town News” on the Town’s website to receive email updates straight to your inbox. Select “Town News and Announcements” and “Town Alerts” to receive updates regarding storms, emergencies, and other timely general news.
CT ALERTS - To ensure that you receive critical emergency information even when the power is out and you can’t receive emails, you should also sign up for the CTAlert system which sends time-sensitive notices wherever you specify, such as your home, cell or business phone, SMS text messages, email, hearing impaired receiving devices and more. Both the State of Connecticut and the Town of Avon have the ability to send alerts to those registered with the CTAlert system. When the State or the Town issues a message about an emergency, the message will be sent to all phone numbers and email addresses enrolled in the system in order of the priority set by the user. If you do not confirm receipt of the message, the system will attempt to reach your next contact number or device entered into the system. The Town suggests enrolling in both Subscribe to Town News and CTAlert to stay informed.
