ALERT, A Londonderry Emergency Response team, is a dedicated group of volunteers that is available in times of emergency when activated by town public safety departments. 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. ALERT was created in 2005 by the Londonderry Rotary Club and is dedicated in loving memory of Dylan Drinan, a three-year-old boy who sadly passed away after wandering away from his home on September 9, 2003.
