SMART Weather Alerting

There is more to being smart than just knowing all the answers.

Everbridge Weather Alerts

Being smart means being prepared. Severe weather events are a fact of life. We can’t stop them but we can prepare for them.

Everbridge’s SMART Weather Alerting leverages AccuWeather & Weather Decision Technologies meteorological resources to enhance and optimize over 150 severe weather alerts such as lightning, tornadoes, thunderstorms, hail, ice, snow, extreme temperatures, high winds, flash floods, and flooding. Because these severe weather types are difficult to predict far in advance, they often have terrible loss of property and life for those individuals who are caught unaware.

Everbridge SMART Weather Alerting provides location-specific severe weather alerts at the speed of click. An automated rules engine supercharges the speed and accuracy of alert delivery so notifications get to the right people right away.

What is SMART?
Notifications that are:
  • Specific – Detailed alerts, geographies, and stop start times.
  • Map-driven – Visual weather and select targets using GIS maps and shapes.
  • Automated – Deliver alerts to contacts and members automatically.
  • Rules-based – Use rules to determine when a message should be triggered.
  • Targeted – Deliver the right message to the right person automatically.
