ALERT

A Londonderry Emergency Response Team

ALERT is a dedicated group of trained volunteers who assist our community and its public safety departments in times of need.

 

WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT...

Our volunteer team provides a valuable resource through continuous training, certifications, and scheduled exercises that prepare us for a variety of emergency situations. In addition, throughout the year we serve as a source of emergency preparedness education to the community. During the past winter's crippling ice storm, our team was called upon to assist the Fire Department and Public Works with road clearing, the Police Department with road closures, and the Red Cross with shelter assistance. The high school shelter provided services to over 100 residents of Londonderry and surrounding communities.

MEMORIAL

The Londonderry ALERT team is dedicated in loving memory of Dylan Drinan. Dylan was a three year old boy who sadly passed away after wandering away from his home on September 9, 2003. The Drinan family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to everyone involved with the program and extend a special thank you to Londonderry’s Police and Fire departments and the Londonderry Rotary Club, for keeping Dylan in their hearts and for always going the extra mile.

MISSION


ALERT’s mission is to maintain a trained, dedicated group of volunteers to:

 

  1. Assist our community and its public safety departments in times of need;

  2. Serve as a source for education about emergency preparedness and prevention; and

  3. Provide a valuable resource for the community through the continuous training and involvement of our members.

SPECIAL NEEDS ALERT PROGRAM

The Special Needs Alert Program (SNAP) was created by ALERT (A Londonderry Emergency Response Team) along with input from the Londonderry School District and the

Londonderry Police Department. The program helps emergency responders identify and

respond to vulnerable residents at risk of wandering.

The registration form below was approved by the Londonderry School Board, beginning in September 2019, and is now distributed at every IEP (Individualized Education Plan) meeting throughout the grade levels. If you know of someone with special needs and who may benefit from being registered at the Londonderry Police Department, please feel free to share this form.

THANK YOU!
