Rehoboth Beach replaces their alert system, inviting residents to subscribe

REHOBOTH, Del.- Rehoboth Beach is rolling out a new communications tool for residents and visitors.

It’s the city’s new Rehoboth Beach Beacon alert system, and it will let subscribers know through text and email when something is happening in the community, such as an emergency or road closure.

We’re told the Rehoboth Beach Beacon will replace the former CodeRED system. The City’s Communication Specialist said their goal with this new system is to get residents the info they need even faster.

“We hope by providing this information it makes them feel more connected to their community and also more aware of what is happening in their community, so that they know what’s going on and not taken by surprise,” Lynne Coan, the City’s Communications Specialist, said.

The City estimates they’ll send out 3 to 4 notifications a month. Residents may subscribe to the new system by texting REHOBCH to 888-777. More information and other ways to subscribe are available at cityofrehoboth.com/rehoboth-beach-beacon-alerts.
