on signing up with Everbridge.

The City of Keene is now using the Everbridge system to communicate with citizens and businesses in case of an emergency, severe weather, or to relay information about city or community events.  Everbridge is an industry-leading interactive communication and mass notification solutions provider that helps organizations save lives, manage critical activities and improve the efficiency of daily operations.


Messages can be sent to individuals using a variety of contact mechanisms – cell phone, landline, email, text messaging, fax, pager, and more – ensuring that residents and city staff receive emergency information and important public service announcements in minutes. Citizens may also receive automated weather alerts through this system, and may opt in/opt out of specific alerts.  In addition, the City plans to use the Everbridge system to notify residents about other important activities, such as road closures and water utility maintenance.


Citizens should opt-in to Everbridge right away to begin receiving messages from the new system.  Citizens MUST SIGN UP to receive the automated weather alerts.  Some residents who opted-in to the previous notification system may still receive notifications for a short time, but unless you sign up on Everbridge you will not receive notifications after the transition period is complete.  For further information call 817-641-3336 or send an email to notifications@keenepd.org.
