Natick - Stay Informed!

The Town of Natick has two primary means of sending "updates" to residents, businesses, and other parties: emergency alerts and community notifications.


Emergency Alerts

Emergency Alerts are urgent updates tied to an immediate threat, these alerts are sent via a phone call (cell or landline) or text message, e.g. snow emergency, hazardous materials, or public safety incidents. Emergency alerts are managed by an external software vendor (Everbridge). These alerts are critical in nature, and the software enables the following:

  • Ability for Town staff to send mass communications - Resident and business contact info is made available via public databases (to reach over 50% of Natick residents) ** no action required **
  • Ability for residents to customize communications - This is an optional step (+ recommended) that allows residents and businesses to input verified information (including: verify/add contact info, customize subscribed alerts, etc.)
