Gloucester Launches the “BEE Alert” Notification System
 
Gloucester County Emergency Management has launched a new emergency notification service for citizens called the “BEE Alert.” All citizens must manually register to receive emergency notifications even if they are already registered with the old system, CodeRED. Data from CodeRED will not automatically be transferred over to the new system, which uses Everbridge technology. While registration for BEE Alert will be ongoing, citizens are asked to register as soon as possible to avoid missing any emergency notifications.
