Severe weather events can jeopardize the safety of employees, citizens, key stakeholders and others. Unfortunately, you can’t prevent these events from happening, but you can prepare yourself by setting up an emergency alert.
Everbridge’s SMARTWeather Alerting leverages Weather Decision Technologies (WDT) to provide location-specific severe weather alerts from the National Weather Service at the speed of a click to help keep everyone informed and safe.

Automated Weather Alerts
Severe weather events impacts each region in different ways. Everbridge has partnered with weather leaders to deliver National Weather Service alerts directly to residents, employees and other stakeholders.
SmartWeather provides access to more than 150 different types of the most accurate location-specific weather and severe weather alerts, including hail and lightning.
Everbridge allows us to refine notifications so that they only target the areas affected by the weather warnings. Upon receiving notifications from the National Weather Service, all sirens within the county are activated regardless of the actual location of the bad weather. Using Everbridge, citizens know that if they receive a warning message on their cell phone, land line or email, they are in the “hot” zone of where the storm is likely to occur.
