Subscribers Encouraged to Update Accounts to Take Advantage of New Features
Everbridge is the new system provider for Alert Montgomery. User options allow subscribers to select as many or few alerts as desired for emergencies, weather, traffic, school closings, etc.; choose how to be alerted, whether by cell phone, email, text, land line phone, work phone, or a Mobile Member app; and block incoming notifications during certain times of the day or night.
Montgomery County is one of 18 jurisdictions with alert systems in the National Capital area. Within Montgomery County, the cities of Gaithersburg, Rockville and Takoma Park have separate but compatible alert systems to Alert Montgomery. All the regional systems were developed in partnership with the Council of Governments’ (COG) National Capital Region (NCR) emergency response system and all jurisdictions are being upgraded this year.
More information is available on the County’s website.
