Brookfield officials are establishing a new system that will alert residents via phone, text or email about important issues going on in town. This will be an opt in system. Residents can register by phone or through a link on the town website under the CodeRED logo at the bottom of the homepage. First Selectman Steve Dunn says this system is not the Emergency Reverse 911 system used by the Police department and residents will continue to receive notifications from that system in the future. Brookfield had 72 confirmed coronavirus cases as of Friday, an increase of 13 since the last report. Dunn says the State has caught up in reporting and this number represents 4 days of reporting.
