CivicReady

What is CivicReady?
CivicReady is an emergency preparedness and notification platform where you can learn about what to do in case an emergency situation occurs and sign up for local alerts.  

What can CivicReady do for me?

CivicReady allows local officials to connect directly to you via text message, email and voice calls to alert you of hazards in your area like: 
  • Emergency Alerts
  • Boil Water Advisories
  • Missing Persons
  • Weather Warnings
  • Other General Notifications
How can I sign up?
To sign up for notifications visit il-villapark.civicready.com and enter your email address in the sign-up box.  You can now indicate when you’d like to get alerts, add phone number and addresses to your profile.  Most alerts can be sent to you via text message, email and voice call.  Once you have chosen all of the alerts that you’d like to receive, save your account. You’ll get an email with a confirmation link that you must click to activate your notifications.

Why do you need my address?
We can use address location to help target alerts to only those subscribers who need them.  For example there may be a gas leak in a particular area, we select the area around the leak and send our notification only to those interested in that area.  Multiple addresses can be added if you would like to be notified for alerts at your home, work, school or other family members’ locations.
