Glades County Keeps Citizens Safe and Informed with Everbridge Resident Alerts
Residents and Businesses Can Sign Up to Receive Critical Communications and Emergency Alerts
**All white and yellow page phone book numbers have already been added in the system.**
— Glades County is now working with Everbridge, the worldwide leader in unified critical communications, to keep residents, staff and emergency personnel safe and informed with quick and reliable emergency notifications and public service announcements. The County will begin using Everbridge Resident Alerts to communicate with citizens and businesses during emergencies and other critical events. Residents are encouraged to register immediately to receive these alerts:
Glades County will use the Everbridge emergency notification system to alert residents about a variety of events, ranging from severe weather, fires, floods and other emergencies, to more routine announcements, such as road closures and water utility maintenance. Messages will be sent to residents on their preferred contact paths—cell phone, SMS, home phone, email, fax, pager and more—to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information. Residents listed in the county E911 database have been automatically subscribed to alerts by phone, but Everbridge allows citizens to self-register, provide additional contact information or opt out.
Glades County is committed to ensuring public safety, community awareness and emergency response. To uphold this, when critical information and public service announcements are available, we will reach out to our residents as quickly and reliably as possible. AlertGlades allows the county to disseminate information across all types of devices, ensuring residents have access to real-time public information when they need it the most. Any weather alerts our citizens sign up for will automatically be received to them through the National Weather Service.
"A resilient, comprehensive critical communications system is an essential tool for counties that need to notify thousands of residents and businesses rapidly and efficiently," said Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. "Everbridge is proud to have been selected by Florida Division of Emergency Management & Glades County as a critical component of its public safety and emergency response program."
