How the automated calling system works
The system will make a call to all residences and businesses in the municipality whose phone number is in the database. In case of absence, the system leaves a message on the voicemail.
It is important to listen to the recorded phone message to the end. The message always starts with: “this is an important message from the Town of Hudson.” Residents must notify their children and their relatives not to hang up. It is recommended to those who have a conventional (wired) phone but are more easily reachable by cell phone, to enter the cellular number in the database.
How to register
The system database consists of phone numbers of residents and Hudson businesses listed in the 411 phone directory, for both Bell and Videotron subscribers. Residents whose phone numbers appear in the 411 phone directories are already included in the automated calling database.
Residents or businesses that are not automatically included in the database:
- those who use cellphones exclusively and do not have a ‘wired’ phone
- those who have a confidential phone number
- new residents
It is the responsibility of each resident to update their contact information. New residents are encouraged to quickly add their contact information to the database.
