Milton plans new emergency notification system

Some Milton residents may soon be seeing "red". City Administrator Jerry Schuetz says the company handling the Emergency Notification System is changing. "Code Red" will take over for "Global Connect". The system sends out individual warnings via cell phones, land lines, or e-mail. It can be used in many types of emergencies, but is most often associated with water shutoffs, road closures, or snow issues. Residents on the old system will be automatically switched. Schuetz says this would be an excellent time for anyone else to sign up.
