Waterford Township — Waterford Township is preparing to launch its new emergency notification system.

The CivicReady system will allow township officials and emergency personnel to create and send out messages to the community through phone calls, text messages and emails beginning Friday. Officials will be able to send messages targeted to specific geographic areas within the township that are affected by a certain situation, such as a lost child or senior.

Residents also have the option of receiving non-emergency messages regarding community events, news and other information.

CivicReady will replace the Waterford Connect system. Registration can be completed on the township’s website.
