In times of emergency it is important that citizens of the community prepare themselves and their families.
This section will provide tips, checklists, volunteer opportunities, and other information to educate citizens in self preparedness and opportunities to assist the community in times of need.
South Kingstown and Narragansett Emergency Management Agencies recognize the need for an organized and trained group of volunteers that can respond to disasters within the community.
The Town of South Kingstown has implemented a state-of-the-art community notification system to alert citizens about emergencies and other important community news. The community notification system, provided by Code RED, enables the Town to provide essential information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, fires, floods, unexpected road closures, or evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods. Please take the time to sign up for the notification service.
Special Needs Registry
The State of Rhode Island has developed a registry for Rhode Islanders with disabilities, chronic conditions, and other special healthcare needs.
During normal business hours, the Neighborhood Guild, Senior Center and Public Libraries are designated Warming Centers for the Town of South Kingstown during prolonged, extreme cold temperatures. View the list of Warming Centers (PDF). Please note during winter storm conditions, specific warming shelters may be designated.
