Resident Emergency Notification

The Village of Lake Zurich uses Everbridge Mass Communication Platform to enhance village-wide communication and emergency preparedness. With Everbridge Mass Notification, Village officials can quickly communicate with residents during time-sensitive situations, such as emergencies and unforeseen public safety matters.

This mass notification system allows officials to record, send, and track personalized voice messages, text messages, TTY / TDD, and emails to thousands of residents in just minutes. Village administrators can target messages to specific groups or residents in a specific neighborhood, notifying only those that need to be aware of a situation.

How do I Sign Up for Notifications?

To receive messages by phone, email, text, cell phone, or voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), residents are encouraged to include their relevant contact information in the notification system.  It just takes a few minutes to complete the signup.

After Receiving a Notification

  • Listen to the entire recorded message and follow all instructions provided if possible.
  • In emergency situations, which warrant a call to notify residents when a situation has been resolved, the original message will advise residents that the system will send an all clear call when the situation is resolved and it is safe to return to normal activities.
