Towns Across Ohio, New Jersey, and Texas Upgrade to Everbridge
The News-Herald reports administrators in Lyndhurst, Ohio recently chose Everbridge to upgrade their community alert system. Because Everbridge delivers quick, efficient notifications to large groups of recipients, these officials can rely on the solution to send inclement weather updates, neighborhood watch messages, and other news.
Everbridge enables users to receive notifications via email, fax, phone call, text message, and more, making it a valuable option for Lyndhurst leaders and other community administrators. In addition, recipients can decide how they want to be contacted, and after the Everbridge mass notification system confirms they received the message, it stops sending updates.
Residents in Chatham, New Jersey also will benefit from Everbridge soon. According to the Chatham Patch, this borough will utilize AlertChathamBorough, an Everbridge-powered system that allows community leaders to communicate with residents and business owners without delays or interference.
“AlertChathamBorough provides a robust emergency notification [platform] that will allow us to communicate quickly, accurately, and efficiently with residents when communication is critical,” Chatham Mayor Bruce Harris said.
Everything’s bigger in Texas, and several Lone Star State cities and towns will reap the rewards of the state-of-the-art Everbridge mass notification system in the near future as well. KIII TV 3 notes leaders in Corpus Christi, Texas have begun using Everbridge to inform residents about emergencies and important community events.
“We can do an email. We can do a text message. We can go to your cell phone, we can go to your home phone,” said Billy Delgado, Corpus Christi Emergency Management Coordinator. “So this new system actually gives us more [opportunities] to reach all [of] the citizens of Corpus Christi and Nueces County.”
Corpus Christi citizens will be able to monitor multiple notifications with Everbridge, and this platform enables them to receive alerts about nearby businesses, schools, and much more.
“They can also be notified of any group meetings [and] neighborhood meetings, depending on what they want to opt in for,” Delgado said. “So this is yes, an emergency but also a community notification system.”
