The Zelienople Police Department, partnered with the Boroughs of Zelienople and Harmony, Urge Residents to Sign Up for Local Emergency Notifications to Be Better Prepared for an Emergency
The Zelienople Police Department and the officials of the Boroughs of Zelienople and Harmony announce that the Boroughs are transitioning its Community Notification System to the new Zelie-Harmony Notification System powered by Smart911 beginning January 17, 2023, replacing the previous Swift911 system. Smart911 is a free service that allows individuals to sign up for notifications sent from local authorities to stay informed on potentially hazardous situations involving utilities, weather, traffic, and other emergencies.
The switch to Smart911 allows residents to receive alerts via phone, text, and email, and notifies the community in real time during emergency situations and additional “need to know” situations such as street closings, utility outages, as well as events and holidays and more. Individuals who are signed up for alerts will receive reliable information about the emerging situation, including tailored updates based on their geographic location.
Individuals who were previously signed up for Swift911 will be automatically enrolled in Smart911, but are encouraged to visit Sign Up - Smart911 to add additional and updated information to the new platform to ensure accuracy. The link is also available on our web site www.zelieboro.org and clicking on the Zelie-Harmony Notification System logo. Residents who were not previously signed up for Swift911 should sign up for free (Sign Up -Smart911) to receive timely and actionable emergency alerts via email, text, or voice message. Residents can specify when and how they are alerted and communicated with.
Smart911 provides enhanced functionality by sending targeted alerts based on the user’s location. Users will receive the highest priority National Weather Service alerts including but not limited to flash flood, severe snow, and severe thunderstorm warnings based on their real-time location.
Smart911 is trusted by thousands of institutions including state and local authorities, business, and educational institutions. The service sends millions of messages daily and during critical situations such as severe weather.
The Smart 911 system also provides a mobile app that is available as a free download for iOS, Android, and Windows phones.
