Mecklenburg County Keeps Citizens Safe and Informed with Everbridge Resident Alerts

Residents and Businesses Can Sign Up to Receive Critical Communications and Emergency Alerts

Mecklenburg 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 Mecklenburg County E911 Emergency Communications Center 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 at mecklenburgva.com and follow the registration link. You can also copy and paste the following link or type the address in your browser:https://member.everbridge.net/index/453003085615049.

 Alert Mecklenburg will use the Everbridge emergency notification system to alert residents about a variety of events, ranging from severe weather, missing persons and other public safety emergencies. Messages will be sent to residents on their preferred contact paths—cell phone, SMS, home phone, email, and more—to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information. Residents and businesses with published telephone numbers will be automatically subscribed to alerts by phone, but Everbridge allows citizens to self-register, provide additional contact information or opt out.

 

"We have a commitment to ensure public safety, community awareness and emergency response. To uphold this, when critical information and public service announcements are available, we need to reach our residents as quickly and reliably as possible,” said Ben Duncan, Director of Emergency Communications "The Everbridge emergency notification system allows the E911 Emergency Communications Center to disseminate this information across all types of devices, ensuring residents have access to real-time public information when they need it the most.”

 "A resilient, comprehensive critical communications system is an essential tool for Mecklenburg County when there is a 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 Mecklenburg County as a critical component of its public safety and emergency response program.”
