Emergency Preparedness


In our efforts to provide more reliable communications with Residents and Businesses in the City, we have implemented Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as our Emergency Notification service provider. Swift911™ in its simplest form is a system that makes phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information.

All the calls you receive will have the Caller ID of 'Beverly City Hall.' If you are not receiving these calls, please fill out the form below to add or update your contact information. You may also remove yourself from our lists.

Typical alerts that you can expect to receive are: snow emergencies; city-wide announcements, such as the start/stop of a parking restriction; public health alerts and public safety alerts.

North Shore - Cape Ann Emergency Preparedness Coalition

The North Shore - Cape Ann Emergency Preparedness Coalition was established in 2004, and is comprised of the Boards of Health and Health Departments from 15 communities in Essex County to enhance the communities' collective capacity to share resources and respond to public health threats and emergencies, which include terrorism and outbreaks of infectious diseases.

The NSCAEPC meets monthly to share information and discuss issues related to public health threats and emergencies. It is a sub-coalition within Region 3 of the MDPH Regional Public Health Emergency Preparedness Coalitions. They receive funding through a grant provided by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.   

Massachusetts Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) system was founded by the federal government shorty after 9/11. The national system brings together people who have health care skills with citizen volunteers. MRC units are trained and prepared to respond as a team to emergencies in their communities. The members may provide education, outreach and various health services throughout the year .MRC units function as part of local emergency preparedness teams. They supplement existing public health resources and emergency agencies such as Red Cross, local public health, fire, police and ambulance services.
