“The E-Alert system has evolved into a necessary tool for all Islip residents,” said Councilman Anthony Senft, liaison to Town Emergency Management. “Having a direct line to Town announcements in an emergency situation can be critical.”
Those who sign up for the service can opt to receive the alerts via email and/or text message. The system has been established in such a way that even if the Town’s communications network compromised, E-Alerts can still be sent from off-site servers. The service is free and residents are urged to sign up for e-alerts from the homepage at www.townofislip-ny.gov.
