The City of Paris uses several methods of providing information regarding emergencies to our residents. These services are also used for non-emergency notifications and general information sharing.
Television Break-In on Local Cable
Optimum, being a good community corporate neighbor, allows the City to use what is termed a "cable override" system. When activated, regardless of what cable channel your television is on, the screen will turn red and a live message will be delivered over the audio speakers of the television set. Warnings, Amber Alerts, Silver Alerts, and local alerts are used on this system.
RAVE Notification Service
USES - Rave Mobile Safety will be used to send critical communications, from evacuation notices to missing child alerts to water system outages.
Privacy - Your contact information remains private and will only be used for community notifications.
