Everbridge allows the City of Forney to use the latest technology to increase its capability to notify citizens in emergencies with the digital mass notification system.
Our Police Department's dispatch center is the primary initiator of the system. Using it to send text messages, emails, and recorded audible messages to citizens with immediate information and, if necessary, instructions that do not require to be directly under or near an outdoor warning siren.
This system enables us to provide residents with detailed, time-sensitive critical information that is not possible by an outdoor warning system.
While not necessary to receive alerts, Everbridge is customizable by going to https://member.everbridge.net/index/892807736728901#/login.
