City Installs New Emergency Alert Beacon System

Thursday, November 13, 2014

You may have noticed the newly installed blue lighting system at various intersections around the City. This lighting system will serve as a beacon to notify residents to utilize the 311 information system to ascertain the nature of a declared emergency. The beacons will be primarily used to alert residents when there is a snow emergency in the City but can be used for any emergency such as natural disasters, chemical spills or any dangerous situation that would put the City of Malden in a declared state of emergency. For instance, blue lights on during a snowstorm will be an indication of a snow emergency. When blue lights are on, residents may dial 311 or log onto the City website for further instructions.
