ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) - In cooperation with Ramsey County, St. Paul police released a new tool with which to notify the public of emergency situations.
According to the department, the Emergency Notification System will enable police to “quickly send emergency alerts to residents, businesses and people who frequently visit St. Paul.”
The free service will call or send text messages and emails to alert residents of developing situations that immediately affect the areas in which they live, work or visit. Being that the alert is geographically specific, only those in the nearby area will be notified. Additionally, subscribers may choose the specific geographic areas for which they would like to receive alerts.
Anyone interested in receiving alerts must sign up by going to stpaul.gov/publicsafetyalert.
