Nashville Deploys Mass Notification Solutions
Thursday, June 06, 2019 | Comments

Everbridge announced that its mass notification solution will be used to power alerts for Nashville and Davidson County, Tennessee, in times of emergency. The Metro Emergency Alert & Notification System (MEANS) will deliver safety instructions via cellphone, landline and short message service (SMS) for localized emergencies such as flooding, public health emergencies or active shooter situations.

“This is an important way for us to keep the community updated on incidents happening in Nashville and Davidson County,” said Chief William Swann, director, Nashville Fire Department. “The Everbridge system will be leveraged by metro government to communicate directly to the public. Residents and visitors can feel confident that when they receive alerts, they are getting accurate information straight from a metro public-safety agency.”

Officials urged residents to download the Everbridge Mobile App, which delivers alerts to cellphones based on a user’s physical location at the time of an emergency.

“The Everbridge app provides a key alerting capability because it enables us to send safety instructions to residents who happen to be in the vicinity of an emergency in real time,” said Department of Emergency Communications Director Michele Donegan.
