RENSSELAER – A new notification system is being tested on Friday in Rensselaer.
The system, called BroadBlast, is a notification system that's used to quickly alert people of emergencies or other city notices.
It is already used in around 50 other cities, including Cohoes.
Residents will get phone calls at their homes.
They are also encouraged to register their mobile devices, so alerts can be received there.
If you live in Rensselaer and would like to register, you can visit the city website by clicking here.
