Everbridge is an emergency notification service that allows emergency officials to notify residents and businesses by telephone, cell phone, text message, email and social media regarding time-sensitive general and emergency notifications. Only authorized officials have access to the Everbridge system.
Any message regarding the safety, property or welfare of the community will be disseminated using the Everbridge system. These may include AMBER alerts, notifications of hazardous traffic or road conditions, boil water advisories or evacuation notices.
This system is an enhancement to existing means of communication and is meant to supplement current or past systems used for mass notification.
The Everbridge database contains information received from public databases, including regional phonebooks. However, no resident should assume that their information is in the system. This website has a link to the Everbridge Community Notification Enrollment page where you can register online. If you can not register online, you can call the Miami County Sheriff’s Office (913) 294-3232 and speak with one of our communications specialists to complete your registration over the telephone.

If the line is busy, Everbridge will try two more times to connect.
* If your contact information has changed and you have not registered your new information. * If you have only cordless phones in your residence, the power is out and you did not register an alternate phone number. * If your line is busy for an extended time and your calls do not forward to voicemail or an answering machine. * If you have a privacy manager on your main phone and you did not register an alternate phone number. Miami County will receive a report of undelivered calls and can instruct the Everbridge system to begin another round of calls to busy numbers. It is best to have an alternate phone number in the calling database for these situations.
