Everbridge Emergency Notification
If your neighborhood had to be evacuated because of a hazardous material leak, how would you find out about it? If there were an Amber Alert issued for a missing child near your home, would you want to be notified?
Montgomery County’s Regional Dispatch Center now has the Everbridge® Emergency Notification System for just such situations. This high-speed messaging system can deliver 60,000 emergency notifications per hour.
If your phone number is listed in the white pages of the telephone directory, you are already included in the database to receive Everbridge® messages. However, businesses and residents with cell phones or non-listed numbers need to register in order to receive Everbridge® emergency notifications.
There are many reasons to register:
- You want your cell phone called as well as your home number
- You want to provide a work phone as a back-up to your home phone
- You want to provide a caregiver’s number
- You’ve recently moved, but kept your old phone number
- You have changed your phone number in the past six months
- You use a TDD/TTY
- You would like to be notified about emergencies in a different area (e.g., you would like your work phone called if there is an emergency near your children's school)
- You want to provide a number to be notified for incidents affecting your business
Perhaps the most important reason to register is if you, like many people, no longer have a traditional landline phone. If you use a cell phone, Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP), or other similar system as your primary phone, YOU NEED TO REGISTER. Finally, this system is replacing the CodeRED® system that the City of Dayton previously used for emergency notifications; if you were registered with CodeRED®, you will need to register now with Everbridge®.
