The Wilton Kiwanis Club has established a town wide email list, to allow Wilton Town officials to notify members of the public of urgent and emergency information. Some examples would be to let you know about the fire that had closed Route 7 for several hours, or about the planned closings of Route 7 for road construction. It may also be used as another notification method for school closings. Perhaps more importantly, it will be available as part of the emergency preparedness process to notify you of any environmental or terror threats that might occur. It will be used very infrequently, but enough for you to know it is working.
This group will be used exclusively to notify Wilton citizens of any urgent information. Only authorized Town officIals will be able to send messages. This group is being run by the Wilton Kiwanis Club as a free public service for the benefit of all who live or work in Wilton. Since only a selected set of officials can post to the group and since attachments to messages will not be allowed, viruses and spam should not be a problem.
Our best efforts will be made to provide timely distribution of messages and to guard the security of the group. However, since this email list function is provided automatically by Yahoo, THIS SERVICE IS PROVIDED "AS IS", AND THE KIWANIS CLUB EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR ANY LIABILITY FOR EITHER DELAYED DISTRIBUTION OF MESSAGES OR SECURITY BREACHES.
