FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Town of Telluride Implements CivicReady® Mass Notification Solution
Service Enables Multi-Channel Distribution of Urgent and Routine Citizen Communications
Telluride, CO – November 4, 2021 – The Town of Telluride has partnered with CivicReady to implement its mass notification solution. Available from CivicPlus, a leader in integrated technology for local government, the CivicReady solution will allow the Town of Telluride to issue urgent notifications, emergency instructions, warnings, and routine communications to subscribed and unsubscribed citizens via email, text message, and voicemail alert, to keep citizens safe and informed. In the event of a local emergency, citizens will benefit from immediate, actionable information and instructions sent via their preferred notification channel.
The CivicReady solution also integrates with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Integrated Public Alert Warning System (IPAWS). The IPAWS system leverages national emergency communication channels, such as the Emergency Alert System (EAS), Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), NOAA weather radios, digital road signage, and television broadcasts, to provide area-specific alerts in times of emergency. By integrating its CivicReady system with IPAWS, Telluride will be able to reach as many people as possible during an emergency event, including those who have not opted-in to text, phone, or email communications, as well as travelers and visitors in the area.
CivicReady is part of the CivicPlus Platform of local government technology solutions designed exclusively for the public sector. Please click the following Public Signup Page to opt in for emergency messages.
