The Town of Addison 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. Addison will begin using Everbridge Resident Alerts effective May 14. All residents are encouraged to register immediately to continue receiving these alerts: AddisonAlert.com.
Addison currently uses Code Red for emergency notifications. The information from Code Red will not be transferred to the new system so residents who want to continue to receive updates must register on the new site.
We 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 911 database will be automatically subscribed to alerts by phone, but Everbridge allows citizens to self-register, provide additional contact information or opt out.
