New emergency alert system

Milford is no longer using the CODE Red System to provide emergency alerts and is asking residents to sign up for Swift911.

Swift911 is a high-speed emergency notification system that alerts residents and businesses to emergency situations involving law enforcement, severe storm warnings, road closures, water problems, evacuations and more. The system has the capability of delivering messages to the entire city via telephone, cell phone, email and text message. Swift911 registration is free.

Residents and businesses can receive alerts by registering at Swift911, by downloading the Swift911 app or by simply texting "Swift911" to 99358. Once registered, you will have the opportunity to sign up for lists that you may find useful by searching for list subscriptions. Residents' information is kept private and confidential.
