Hood County Office of Emergency Management and 911 Announcement
Hood County Office of Emergency Management will switch to Everbridge Mass Notification System starting July 1, 2021, for all information about severe weather, road closures, events, and office closures. This new system works in a similar way to the previous system by sending out messages via email, phone, and text to inform you of issues that may affect your safety.
During the Everbridge launch, the Hood County Office of Emergency Management will also be launching a special needs and assistance program. During the Everbridge sign-up process, residents will have the ability to select a variety of needs they may have. This information will allow local emergency response teams to better understand the needs of the community.
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.
