In an effort to increase communication, the Village of Newark has partnered with CivicReady to implement its mass notification solution. Village officials will be able to issue urgent notifications, emergency instructions and warnings specific to Newark as well as non-emergency information.

Some examples of communication are severe weather alerts, water main breaks, road closures, hydrant flushing, Newark event information and water bill reminders. To receive the notifications, village residents will be invited to subscribe to CivicReady. Residents will be able to choose what type of message – emergency and/or non-emergency as well as how they want to receive the messages - via email, text message, and/or voicemail alerts.

The Village has paid for this service and there is no additional cost to residents to use the service. This is a safe, secure, quick and efficient way to communicate with residents. The communication system is expected to by up and running by February 1.
