The City of Melrose 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 City will begin using Everbridge Resident Alerts to communicate with citizens and businesses during emergencies and other critical events. Residents are encouraged to register immediately to receive these alerts.
The City of Melrose 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. Residents can receive messages on their preferred contact paths—cell phone, text, home phone, email, and more—to ensure real-time access to important and sometimes critical information. Residents listed in the City 911 database will be automatically subscribed to alerts by phone, but Everbridge allows citizens to self-register, provide additional contact information. Residents can also opt in to receive non-emergency notifications about events, traffic alerts, or city announcements. Need to change your registration info? Log in to your Everbridge Account Here.
