Easy Resident Opt-In
Build a Comprehensive Resident Database Without Relying on Landlines.
Today, most people rely on their mobile phone as their primary contact device. Just using 911 and White page data are no longer enough. Emergency Managers need to increase opt-ins to be able to reach all residents--especially during a public safety threat. Community Engagement features multiple opt-in methods to provide residents, visitors, employees and other community members with the ability to easily sign-up for alerts.
For Pope Francis’ historic visit to Philadelphia, the Community Engagement platform was successful in helping us obtain many resident and visitor opt-ins in a very short amount of time. We were able to generate over 11k opt-in’s in just a few days—by comparison, it took almost 8 years for us to amass 15k Twitter followers! Clearly, this is a powerful and highly visible tool that helps us reach citizens quickly and effectively.

"We also use Everbridge to let people know when there is traffic at or around the airport; to share weather alerts for any type of impending weather; and for other more routine issues. We also use Everbridge to notify stakeholders of training exercises; put simply, we use the Everbridge Mass Notification system for anything that could cause an impact to a stakeholder."
With Community Engagement, the San Angelo Police department is able to communicate directly to community members instantaneously through multiple contact paths. The police department has also had success with Everbridge Tip Watch, an anonymous tipping solution that encourages residents to speak up and engage in the fight against crime in their city.
