What is the protocol to notify the public about this? I'm assuming the letter will go out to all residents but a robo-call seems prudent as well.

I'm not sure there is a protocol as this is the first time the town has done this.

And yes, a reverse 911 robo-call would be prudent.

I received both a call (home phone and cell), and a text message about this, as well as an email. I signed up for Amherst's Emergency Notifications some time back.
