After exploring several vendors, the City of Lyndhurst has chosen Everbridge as their new community mass notification system. Everbridge will allow the City of Lyndhurst to promptly notify their residents of emergency situations via phone, text message, or email in a matter of minutes. The system will also be used for non-emergency notifications such as parking snow bans or power outage information. Additionally, residents will be able to "opt-in" with additional non-published phone numbers and to sign-up for other notifications they may be interested in.
 
Everbridge is based in Glendale, California with three interconnected call centers which ensure rapid and reliable community notification. The system was used by communities affected by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and during the Boston Marathon Bombing this past Spring. The flexibility and reliability of the system is what stood out most to the City of Lyndhurst. The program will allow Lyndhurst Dispatchers to either select the entire community, a specific street, neighborhood, or apartment building so that pertinent information gets to the right people. While the system has been operational for the last month for emergency notifications, the City will be fully implementing the program on Friday, September 6, 2013. Additional information for residents will be made available on the city website at www.lyndhurst-oh.com as well as Lyndhurst City Hall and the Lyndhurst Community Center.
