Westfield Emergency Notification System
The City of Westfield has an emergency notification system to be used to contact citizens of the city during the event of an emergency. The providing vendor is Rapid Notify. Public phone data for citizens and some businesses is already in the system.
If your number is unlisted or you want to add a number(s) use the web form below.
The system can also notify you by email as well.
The system will be tested regularly to ensure the system is working properly.
Unlike other notification systems in the city, the Rapid Notify system will be used in the event of a serious emergency or significant event effecting the city. The Rapid Notify system has features that the other systems lack and is thus considered the premier notification system.
