HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – A new emergency preparedness mobile application available to Connecticut residents will provide information and alerts in emergency situations as well as help residents prepare ahead of an emergency.
Governor Dannel Malloy today introduced the “CT Prepares” app that will incorporate and integrate text messaging, e-mail, and social networking. Those with the app will receive real-time notifications about emergencies, state office closings and public safety messages and users will also be able to communicate with family members during an emergency.

The app can be downloaded for free from ITunes Apple Store for Apple devices and Google Play for Android devices by searching he keyword “CT Prepares.”
