Vermont Business Magazine Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG) has been selected by the Vermont Department of Public Safety, Division of Emergency Management as the new mass notification service provider for its statewide VT-ALERT program. VT-ALERT, powered by Everbridge, will enable Vermont authorities to communicate critical information directly to residents, businesses and visitors in near real-time. Everbridge is based in Massachusetts.

The state-wide system will distribute public safety information such as Amber Alerts, weather warnings and evacuation notifications across multiple communication methods including SMS, email, IPAWS, reverse 911 and social media for geographically-targeted alerts. Residents can re-register or subscribe at www.vtalert.gov/enroll and can tailor the information that they receive to specific locations, types of alerts and preferred contact paths and devices.

“In a region where snow and ice storms are particularly challenging on critical infrastructure and cause prolonged power outages that can make communicating with the public difficult, we are excited the Vermont Department of Public Safety will be able to leverage the Everbridge platform to increase overall preparedness and resiliency,” said Jaime Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. “We are delighted to partner with the Vermont Department of Public Safety, Division of Emergency Management to help ensure that all individuals and organizations in the state are safe and informed.”
