Altavista Alert Notification System

on .

The Town of Altavista 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 Town will begin using Everbridge Resident Alerts to communicate with citizens and businesses during emergencies and other critical events.

Altavista  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 Campbell County 911 database will be automatically subscribed to alerts by a land line phone, but Everbridge allows citizens to self-register, provide additional contact information or opt out.
