Hall County launches mass notification alert system for citizens

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, GA (CBS46) -

Hall County is now using the Everbridge system for Citizen Alerts to communicate with thousands of businesses and residents in 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 daily operations.

With the system, Hall County 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, fax, pager, and more - ensuring that residents and Hall County staff receive important public service announcements quickly.

Citizens listed in the County's 911 database will be automatically subscribed to alerts by landline, though any individual may self-register, provide additional contact information or opt out.
