Please note that in the event of an emergency, texting messaging may be more reliable than a phone call.

Text messages can often get around network disruptions when a phone call might not be able to get through.

Also residents with medical conditions requiring electrically powered equipment should notify their local police department as soon as possible in case they experience a power outage later on.
