If you live in Burlington, remember not to worry when you receive an emergency alert via text, phone or email next week. 

The city recently announced that a test of Alert Burlington, the city’s public notification system for community emergencies, will take place on Dec. 14 at 11:45 a.m. 

Burlington Fire and Emergency Services issues the alerts.

According to the city, residents who subscribe to the alerts will receive a test notification through the communication method they’ve selected, which includes phone, email and text messages. 

“The test notification message will identify that it is a test and no action is required,” the city said on its website. 

“Subscribers will also not be asked to provide any personal information relating to the test notification.”

Registration is free and messages can be sent out in a number of languages.
