Swift911™ - Resident Emergency Contact System
In order to provide more reliable communications with Residents of the Inc. Village of East Williston, the Board has implemented Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as our Emergency Notification service provider, via a municipal agreement with the Town of North Hempstead.
SWIFT911™ is a high speed notification program with the capability of delivering recorded warnings to the entire community, via telephone, email, text or pager. The system can contact up to four telephone numbers until reaching the designated party. Emergency messages are able to reach TTY (teletypewriter) phones used by those who are deaf or hard of hearing. Additionally, the system employs a Do Not Call component for those who do not wish to receive the alert.
Swift911™, in its simplest form, is a system that makes phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. Think of it as a "reverse 911".
