Town officials will be testing Needham's new telephone-based reverse 911 system on Saturday. The test will begin at around 10 a.m. and is expected to last for less than one hour.

Town Manager Kate Fitzpatrick and Fire Chief Paul Buckley are asking residents who do not receive an automated call from the system by 11 a.m. to contact the Emergency Management office at 781-455-7565 or the Fire Department Dispatch Center at 781-444-0142.
