Sign Up for Smart911 – Shiawassee County’s Emergency Notification System

The City of Perry is encouraging all residents to enroll in RAVE.  

In response to a recent need to issue a city wide notice regarding our water system, the City has identified a free service to expedite the notification process when emergencies arise.  While the recent notice to boil water was the first of its kind in more than 15 years, this service will allow us to communicate faster should it be needed again in the future.

The benefits of RAVE extend beyond our community.  The system can send emergency notifications from evacuation notices to missing child alerts.  After enrolling in RAVE you can even opt in to Weather Warnings generated by the National Weather Service.

Residents and business alike are urged to enroll.   It will only take a few minutes, please tell all of your friends and family about this invaluable service!  Smart phone users can also download the Smart911 Rave Mobile Safety App in the app store.  If you know of a resident that does not have access to the internet, such as an elderly neighbor please help them enroll as well, or direct them to City Hall for assistance.

More information about the RAVE system can be found on the Shiawassee County Central Dispatch website.
