The City of Blue Island is pleased to announce implementation of its RAVE high-speed notification system. The RAVE system provides the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire City within minutes. A recorded message is delivered describing the critical situations from evacuations to missing child alerts. The RAVE notification system has the capability of providing emergency information to landlines or cell phones via text messages and e-mail messages to those residents that may or may not be home at the time of an emergency. All businesses should register, as well as all residents who have unlisted phone numbers or have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number. Once you’ve signed up, you decide if you want to receive emergency, non-emergency or weather related notifications. First responders will be aware of important information you have provided that will help them address your emergency. Please sign up today at Smart911.com

In recent days, there have been three unattended running vehicles stolen in Blue Island. Leaving your vehicle running with the keys in the ignition is an invitation for thieves. It can leave you without a car. Worse, it can land you a $120 ticket. It’s illegal in Illinois to leave your vehicle running unattended. The only exception is if you have a keyless remote start or ignition safety switch.
