The Village of Mogadore and Summit County 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 Mogadore to issue urgent notifications, emergency instructions, warnings, and routine communications to subscribed citizens via email, text message, and voicemail alert, to keep citizens safe and informed. In the event of a local emergency, citizens subscribed to CivicReady will benefit from immediate, actionable information and instructions sent via their preferred notification channel. For non-native English speaking citizens, CivicReady voice call notifications can be automatically translated into one of 20 languages, and email and text notifications can be automatically translated into one of 63 languages to maximize the effectiveness of the solution in ensuring mass awareness of potentially impactful situations.
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), 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, Mogadore 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.
“CivicPlus is built on designing innovative solutions for local governments,” said Ryan Strait, CivicPlus Platform Product Director. “We continually invest in our products, such as CivicReady, to strengthen and transform the way local governments serve and communicate with their citizens and are proud to partner with Mogadore and Summit County to help them accomplish their public safety goals.”
