Emergency Shelter: When the unexpected happens, people can turn to emergency shelters for a place to stay. Isle La Motte maintains an emergency shelter at the Town Offices on School Street, and there is a Red Cross Regional Emergency Shelter at the North Hero School on US Rte. 2 in North Hero.
Lake Water Conditions: Information on lake conditions is provided by a network of volunteers trained and coordinated by the Lake Champlain Committee and by scientists from the Vermont departments of Health and Environmental Conservation.
VT-Alert: The State of Vermont maintains a database of subscribers that wish to be notified in an emergency. Isle La Motte now has the capability to generate its own Alert messages without relying on VT Emergency Management. This exciting new feature allows for messages that are tailored specifically for Isle La Motte. As Town leaders continue to enhance emergency preparedness efforts, this is a valuable opportunity for both residents and visitors of Isle LaMotte.
To receive public safety messages, individuals must either sign up for VT Alert or have their phone numbers registered in the E-911 system. If you already have a VT Alert account, there is no need to take any action. You will continue to receive State VT Alert messages and will now also receive messages generated through the Isle LaMotte emergency preparedness program.
If you have not yet signed up for VT Alert, please click here to be redirected to register for Alert messages specifically for Isle LaMotte, Grand Isle County, and a number of other towns. You can also choose to receive specific types of Alert messages, such as VT Alert State messages for weather, flooding, public health alerts, and more.
