Millis sets up reverse 911 system

Residents can now register their phone numbers with the town's telephone contact database online at millispolice.com.

A link at the bottom of the page takes users to a page where they can enter their address and preferred phone number. The town uses the system to contact residents in cases such as road closings, water use advisories, and emergencies, said Police Chief Peter McGowan.

The database already includes residents' phone numbers if they are listed in the Verizon White Pages, but McGowan said the online sign-up would be useful for residents with unlisted phone numbers, those who prefer to be called on their cell phones, and people who are new to town.
