Welcome to Swift911TM

 In our efforts to provide more reliable communication with residents and businesses in the Town, we have implemented Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as our Emergency Notification service provider.   Swift911™, in its simplest form, is a system that makes phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information.  The system also allows notification via email and text messages.  All the notifications you receive will be identified as coming from the Town of Kingston.

If you have a wired phone in your home (a landline), your number is already in the system.  If you would like to receive notices on your cell phone, as either voice or text messages, and/or you would like to receive email alerts, CLICK HERE.  You only need to do this once.
