Everbridge – Mass Notification Service

Shiawassee County has transitioned its mass-notification system service from Smart911 to Everbridge.  Even if you were previously receiving alerts from Smart911, registration with Everbridge is required to continue receiving notifications.

Notification Program Overview

Shiawassee County launched a new Mass Notification service that allows us to alert you. You opt-in to enter your contact information and subscribe to notification you care about based on your location. The information you provide is protected and will not be used for any other purpose.

How It Works:

When we issue a notification about a potential safety hazard or concern, you will receive a message on the voice or text communication methods that you have registered. If requested for the notification, you can confirm that you have received the message, and you will not be contacted by any subsequent methods regarding that particular notification. If you do not confirm, the system will continue to attempt to reach you at all of the contact paths that you have registered.

Sign up for Notifications:

Create an account and add your contact and location information into the Mass Notification system. All information you provide will be kept strictly confidential.

Stop Receiving Notifications:

You can stop receiving at any time by removing your contact information from your profile.
