What is the Connect-CTY service?
The City of Dickinson, in cooperation with The Water Company and Dickinson Economic Development Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of the Connect-CTY service, our new city-to-resident notification system. With this service, Emergency Management can send personalized voice messages to residents and businesses within minutes with specific information about time-sensitive or common-interest issues such as emergencies and local community matters.

The Connect-CTY service will be used to supplement our current communication plans and augment public safety / first responder services. If you have any questions, please email us.
