ALERT! Do you want to be on the Gaithersburg Alert System?

Real Estate Agent with Remax Realty Group 316581




I live by the rule that it is better to know something than be in the dark! Literally . Alert Gaithersburg could save your life and the life of your loved ones. 


According to the City of Gaithersburg, "Alert Gaithersburg, a system that is funded and maintained by the Department of Homeland Security through the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, is switching to a new system as of October 15th. If you are already a current subscriber you must enroll to avoid an interruption in service."


 I have used this Alert system in the past and it has saved me time driving during rush hour. It has also informed me about power outages in Gaithersburg.A few years ago, in 2012  we had a very big storm - a Derecho. It was very threatening! Alert Gaithersburg sent me Alerts and we were able to take cover! 


Alert Gaithersburg is a notification system that immediately contacts you during an emergency. It relays traffic, safety info and weather information. The system also allows messages to be sent from the City of Gaithersburg, Montgomery County Government and Homeland Security.  It is Gaithersburg's goal to have all residents subscribe to this important service.
