I haven’t heard anything from the city during the COVID-19 pandemic. Am I missing something?
Answer: Like the rest of the world, the city’s delivery of services was impacted by COVID, especially in recreation programming.
The ways that we communicate with the public during emergencies include: the city’s website, the Notify Me service, the city’s social media pages (Facebook and Twitter), and emails sent to those on our utility billing list. Updated messages from the city were flashing across the top of the city’s webpage since mid-March.
During a rapidly moving disaster that is more localized, the city would utilize Code Red, which dials all phone numbers that are registered with the program and provides a pre- recorded message (such as instructions to evacuate or boil water).
This was not a Code Red type of emergency. Due to widely available information and the emergency being related to public health, the city, in this case, has followed the lead of Davis County and the Utah Department of Health. We encourage you to take this moment to sign up for Notify Me and Code Red, and to provide your email address to the Utilities Department.
