Sign Up For Richmond Emergency Notices

Richmond will be using the VT-Alert Program to notify residents about emergency situations in town. We will use this to update residents with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as unexpected road closures, important water system updates, and more.

Sign up online to receive alerts via phone, text, and/or email. You can limit the alerts you receive to only Richmond or expand the alerts to include other towns and counties in Vermont.

Be sure to fill out the section titled “Alert Subscriptions” to sign up for the alerts you want to receive. If you do not fill out this section you will not receive all the alerts relevant to Richmond.
