EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM (ENS) – REVERSE 911
The Department of Safety, Division of Emergency Services and Communications has instituted a new free service that will give communities the ability to deliver important, potentially lifesaving messages to its residents. The system will allow everyone in town or within a given geographical area to be warned of an emergency that is going on. If there is a traffic accident or fire that could cause traffic to be diverted, flooding that has caused a road to be closed or an emergency at our school, residents can be given the information they need in time to react and protect themselves and their loved ones.
Everyone with a land-line (home phone) is already in the system.
You now have the option to register and be notified on your cell phone &/or by email.
Use this link to register: www.nhe911.org/selfregistration
To get on a list to receive pertinent notices, please e-mail the Selectmen’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org
The first settlers came up the Connecticut River in canoes from Northfield, Massachusetts in 1741, after the original charter was granted by the Massachusetts governor in 1736. A subsequent charter was granted by King George II of England in 1752, and the town was incorporated under the name of Westmoreland in honor of an English Lord of that name. Westmoreland, while basically an agricultural community, supported many mills and other small industries during the late 1700’s and throughout the 1800’s. In 1800, the population was recorded at 2,066. Today’s population is 1,747 and includes residents of the Cheshire County facilities located in Westmoreland. Further interesting history may be found in The History and Genealogy of Westmoreland, NH published in 1976. A copy may be purchased from the Selectmen’s Office.
