Town of Delhi Implements Community Notification System

Posted: 04/21/22

Delhi Residents Can Now Receive Real-Time Public Safety Messages Through Nixle

The Town of Delhi has partnered with Nixle to implement a notification system that communicates with residents in real-time for localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories and messages. Nixle will help improve how the Town of Delhi can communicate with residents through a system that coordinates phone calls, texts, emails, and more.

As a resident, there are several ways to register to receive the town’s communications:
1.    Go to townofdelhiny.org
2.    Search 13753 in the Everbridge app from your mobile phone
3.     Text 13753 to 888777 from your mobile phone
4.     Call 746-TOWN to sign up

“The Town wanted to bring this service to the residents of Delhi to keep them informed of important happenings,” says Town Councilmember, Christina Viafore. “We especially want those that only have landline phones to sign up to make certain they get the messages that are important to them.”

Ms. Viafore will be at the Town Hall at 5 Elm Street on Thursday evenings from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. in April to assist residents in signing up. There are three categories of messages that will be sent to residents.

Alert messages are critically important information where the loss of life and/or property is potentially imminent. Messages could include severe weather warnings, dangerous situations, and health alerts. Alert messages will be sent by voicecall to your home phone number, text message to your mobile number, and by email.

Advisory messages are intended to communicate important, need-to-know information. Messages could include road alerts, or local giveaways. Advisory messages will be sent by text and email unless you have only provided your home phone.

Community messages will be used to convey town meetings, everyday local happenings, and developments. Community messages will be sent to email only. If residents with landline phones want to receive advisory and community messages over the phone, they will need to sign up by calling (607) 746-TOWN.

Nixle’s privacy policies do not allow the Town to know who has signed up. To ensure residents are on the list, registration is advised. All messages will be targeted geographically, allowing residents to receive relevant information from the Town of Delhi. All messages will be posted on the web, and the Everbridge mobile app. Landlines phone numbers from the white and yellow page data have been purchased and uploaded to the notification system. In the event of an emergency situation in which an alert message is needed, a voice call can be sent to these Delhi residents without signing up.

Town of Delhi Begins Clean Heating and Cooling Campaign

Posted: 04/01/22

Traditional fossil-fuel based thermal energy systems generate about one-third of New York’s energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Transitioning to more efficient heating and cooling systems eliminate harmful emissions, reduce energy costs, increase comfort levels, and creates a healthier environment in your community.

The most common solution is the air-sourced heat pump or “mini-split,” which pulls heat from the outside air—even at sub-zero temperatures—to warm your home in winter and cool it in summer.

HeatSmart Delaware will help local residents navigate through the process of making their home or business more comfortable, safer, and energy efficient with heat pumps and energy efficiency. On Wednesday, April 13 at noon, Network for a Sustainable Tomorrow will host a webinar on zoom to provide information and education on how clean energy technologies work, what incentives and financing are available, and how to take the next step, which is to get a free assessment from a competitively-selected installer partner. 

Participating in this program helps Delhi and Delaware County become a clean energy community and earn grant money and recognition for climate leadership while building community-wide resiliency and economic opportunity. The webinar will be held on zoom.  Online registration is required by visiting tinyurl.com/6cv59exs.

There are only 32 grants of $5,000 available to small communities statewide when they complete a “Clean Heating & Cooling” campaign.  The grants are offered by NYSERDA, the New York State Energy Research Development Authority, as a way to encourage residents to make the switch to electric heat for their homes and businesses.
