States + Local Governments

Reliably Reach Residents, Coordinate Responders and Employees

States and Local Governments need to anticipate an prepare for events that range from critical, like severe weather, active shooters or acts of terrorism, to routine, like community events, protests, and construction.  These events require information to be shared with residents, staff and emergency personnel, over any device, while having the confidence that they will reach the desired recipients immediately.  

Statewide Notifications           Incident Comms for Government

“Ensuring the safety of all Floridians is the Division’s top priority. The selection of Everbridge as the AlertFlorida vendor marks a milestone toward providing the State’s Emergency Managers with a standardized system to communicate critical emergency information to every resident, business and visitor in Florida.”

– Bryan W. Koon, Florida Department of Emergency Management Director


“Depending on their preferences, residents can receive notifications on anything from street sweeping and water conservation, to library services and building code issues. Residents can also stay engaged with the community through our TorranceAlerts Twitter and Facebook handles as well.”

Florida: Statewide Notification System

In 2016, Everbridge was selected as the service provider for the development and implementation of AlertFlorida, a landmark initiative that provides statewide emergency alert and notification services to Florida residents, businesses and visitors.

Florida promoted the keyword #FLPREPARES in advance of Hurricane Irma, asking residents and visitors to text the keyword to 888-777 to receive critical updates and information. During the course of the Hurricane, 20M+ messages were sent, and over 600K individuals opted-into the system. The uniformity of the system created a standardized message that was easily adopted and deployed across all public safety entities in the state. In turn, public messaging was clear, concise and consistent throughout the event.
