Everbridge Alerts Communicate Emergency and Non-Emergency Events
Citizens and Businesses can sign up to receive emergency and non-emergency alerts from Lehi City using Everbridge. The Everbridge system provides citizen alerts to thousands of people within minutes of an emergency situation.
With the Everbridge system, Lehi City will be able to alert residents about severe weather, fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and in-process violent crimes. Messages can be sent to individuals using a variety of contact mechanisms– cell phone, landline, email, text messaging, and more – ensuring that residents and city staff receive life-saving emergency information and important public service announcements in minutes.
“We have a commitment to protect our citizens from any danger that threatens our community,” said Scott Sampson, Lehi City Risk Manager. “The Everbridge mass notification and interactive communication system ensures the City will be able to react quickly and efficiently to reach each individual in the case of an emergency.”
In addition to emergency notifications, the City plans to use the Everbridge system to notify residents about other important activities, such as road closures and water utility maintenance. Residents may select which categories of alerts to receive at the time of enrollment.
Residents may enroll for alerts by visiting alerts.utahcounty.gov.
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.
