Citizen Emergency Notification System
Southington Keeps Citizens Safe With Everbridge for Citizen Alerts
Citizens and Businesses Can Sign Up to Receive Critical Alerts During Emergencies.
The Town of Southington CT, will begin using Everbridge for Citizen Alerts, a leading emergency notification system provider, to communicate with thousands of businesses and residents in minutes in an emergency.
The Town will be able to alert residents about severe weather, fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and other emergencies using Everbridge. Messages can be sent to residents on any communication path desired – cell phone, home phone, email, text messaging, fax, pager, and more – ensuring that residents and Town staff receive life-saving emergency information and important public service announcements in minutes. Citizens listed in the Town’s 9-1-1 database will be automatically subscribed to alerts by phone, though any citizen may self-register, provide additional contact information or opt out. In addition, the Town may use the Everbridge system to notify residents about other important activities, such as road closures and water utility maintenance.
We have a commitment to our citizens to protect them from any danger that threatens our community. The ability to reach all residents quickly during an emergency to warn them and provide guidance is critical to upholding that commitment, which is why we are rolling out Everbridge. The Everbridge emergency notification system ensures the Town will be able to react accurately and efficiently in a natural disaster or other crisis.
A robust emergency notification system is an essential tool for cities that need to notify thousands of residents and businesses rapidly and efficiently during an emergency.
