The Everbridge system is provided for free to Douglas County residents by a grant through the NE Region Homeland Security Council. The system also is being utilized by a number of counties throughout the region.
The call notification system uses your location to send messages. For example, weather alerts are sent to you only when your location is included within the issued weather product. Your address also allows the county(s) you wish to receive alerts from to send targeted messages to you.
Everbridge is a “confirm and quit” system meaning that once you confirm receipt of the message, the system will not use other methods of notification to reach you.
