Everbridge Mass Notification
Hood County Office of Emergency Management switched to Everbridge Mass Notification System on July 1, 2021, for all information about severe weather, road closures, events, and office closures. It sends messages via email, phone, and text to inform you of issues that may affect your safety.
How Does It Work? The process begins when Hood County issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Next, the Everbridge Emergency Notification System sends a message through your primary contact path. If you do not confirm receipt of the message, the system will attempt tp reach you via your second contact and continues trying to reach you until you confirm receipt of the notification.
The success of this service relies on you and sharing your current contact information is the only way to ensure that you can be contacted in the event of an emergency.

Hood County Emergency Sirens sound for only two reasons: a weather warning or an emergency at the Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant near Glen Rose. They are tested at noon on the first and third Monday of each month, except major holidays.
