Community Konnex of Rhode Island

(pronounced "connects")

The Rhode Island Community Konnex  program offers residents, groups and organizations an interactive communications platform during high and medium priority situations.    Members can customized their alerts/notifications received on mobile devices and personal computers, based on incident types and location(s) via SMS text and/or email.  Often in an emergency mainstream communications will not be available so we offer residents portable two-way radios to communicate to our local plat leader as well as your neighbors and community.  A great asset to check up on a fellow neighbor, family or learn the effected area or restoration time of a power outage or any other state, city or town emergency.

 


Communication Services


 
Radio has proven to be the most efficient and reliable methods of communicating in emergency situations, especially when main stream forms of communications are down.  Generally over looked by many, communications is an important part of everyday life but vital in time of emergency.  Obtaining assistance when immediate personal safety or property are at risk or when crucial resources such as  food, water and housing are threatened, communications makes all the difference.  UCESA has developed several radio systems to facilitate these critical needs.  Learn more about the UCESA radio services on our Communications page.
