New Hampshire's Department of Safety has updated one tool and created another that uses mobile and landline phones to alert people to statewide emergencies.

A website, ReadyNH.gov, provides step-by-step guidance for people to prepare for natural and man-made disasters.

The other tool, NH Alerts, allows people who have registered with the ReadyNH.gov website or who have downloaded a free app to receive emergency information. It provides location-specific audible alerts such as warnings to avoid a particular area during an emergency or weather warnings issued by the National Weather Service.
