Fauquier County has upgraded its emergency notification system to Everbridge.
Everbridge is a web based service that enables the County to provide mass notification quickly and easily. Notifications may include evacuations, missing person alerts, hazardous materials incident, flooding, and other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety. Messages are delivered by phone call, text and email. Everbridge also provides notifications on weather warning specific to the address that is provided by a citizen during registration. Quiet times can be set so that citizens who wish to not be disturbed during certain times can specify those times. County officials can override the quiet mode in situations deemed “significant or life threatening” such as a tornado warning.
