Are You Ready?
Being prepared for an emergency situation is everyone's responsibility. The City of Worcester makes available a number of resources to help you and your family prepare for emergency situations. At minimum every family should take the time to make an emergency plan so that everyone knows how to respond to an emergency and build an emergency kit to ensure that supplies are accessible in the event of an emergency. For more information please visit City of Worcester Emergency Management - Are You Ready?
Citizens with Disabilities (mobility, visual, hearing, cognitive or mental health) may register in advance with the City of Worcester so that emergency workers may better plan their responses to natural and manmade disasters. Participation is voluntary. All personal information will be kept confidential under the law, but may be shared with other emergency response agencies. Please note that providing this information does not guarantee your safety or any particular level of assistance or emergency service during a disaster; it is meant to enhance the ability of emergency responders to plan for a disaster.
ALERTWorcester enables the city to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons and evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods via your choice of phone, email, text, etc.
