Reverse 911-system

Why don’t we test the reverse-911 system (aka: Code Red) to see if it’s fully effective? The last Northfield (to the best of my knowledge) reverse 911 was not fully effective.

A date and time can be set up with advance public notification and ask residents to notify appropriate authorities if they don’t receive it.

I did not receive the last (?) reverse 911 and only found out about it after it was published in the Greenfield Recorder. Even though I have since taken steps to iesure that I receive the next one, I won’t know for certain until it’s too late.

Test the system!
