leave a comment »

City officials today announced Glendale Water & Power’s new “Citizen Notification System,” which will alert those who sign up with important  information before, during and after emergencies, such as fires and floods and will provide updates on evacuations and road closures.

Glendale Water & Power customers must enroll in the system to receive the notifications. Residents can choose to receive the messages via home phone, cell phone, e-mail, text message and other options.

Glendale Water & Power General Manager Glenn Steiger in a statement urged residents to sign up for the system, especially in light of projected mudslides this winter.

“Our new Citizen Notification System will help deliver critical information and guidance on how to stay safe and out of harm’s way during natural disasters, emergencies and other crises,” he said. “The success of this important public safety program depends on individual participation, so we urge all Glendale residents and businesses to register today.”

Customers can also opt-in to receive notification about civic events through the system.
