Everbridge Community Notification
Posted Date:

Community Notification System Opt-In

City of Monmouth is now using the Everbridge system for Citizen Alerts to communicate with thousands of residents and businesses within minutes in the event of an emergency.  Everbridge is an industry-leading interactive communication and mass notification solutions provider that helps organizations save lives, manage critical activities and improve the efficiency of daily operations.

 

With the Everbridge system, City of Monmouth will be able to alert residents about severe weather events, power outages, floods, toxic environmental issues and in progress violent crimes. Messages can be sent to individuals using a variety of contact mechanisms– cell phone, landline, email, text messaging, fax, pager, and more – ensuring that residents and city staff receive life-saving emergency information and important public service announcements in minutes. Citizens listed in the white pages database will be automatically subscribed to alerts by landline.  However, we strongly encourage every individual to “Opt-In” and self-register in order to provide additional contact information. In addition, the City plans to use the Everbridge system to notify residents about other important activities, such as road closures, water utility maintenance and important City meeting notices.


How It Works

When we issue a notification about a potential safety hazard or concern, you will receive a message on the voice or text communication methods that you have registered. If requested for the notification, you can confirm that you have received the message and you will not be contacted by any subsequent methods regarding that particular notification. If you do not confirm, the system will continue to attempt to reach you at all of the contact paths that you have registered.

 Sign up for Notifications

Create an account and add your contact and location information into the Mass Notification system. You will be able to select certain notifications you wish to receive. 

 Stop Receiving Notifications

You can stop receiving at any time by removing your contact information from your profile.

 Will my contact information be shared with others?

No. The information that you provide will be used only for the City of Monmouth for notification purposes. We will not give or sell your contact or location information to any vendor or other organization.
