The State of Connecticut has launched a new mobile app to provide Connecticut residents with emergency alerts and other useful resources. The app, called CTPrepares, can be downloaded for FREE from the iTunes Apple Store for Apple devices and Google Play for Android devices. The app allows residents to communicate with family members during an emergency and provides real-time notifications including emergency news, state office closings, public safety messages and up-to-the-minute information for residents. It also locates Connecticut Emergency Management contacts and provides emergency preparation guides. For more information, click on the attached PDF.
