What is ReadyNotify?

ReadyNotify is a mass notification system used by The Village of Gates Mills to issue emergency notifications to the public. It is similar to the communications systems schools use to notify parents of closures or other time-sensitive information.The system delivers messages to residents and businesses by telephone, cellular phone, text message, or electronic mail. The system is capable of sending messages to specific communities or the entire county.

ReadyNotify is primarily used for emergency notifications, when rapid and accurate information is essential for your immediate safety.
