Gallatin County Emergency Management

Current Information

Mobile Device Management Integration for CNS

Gallatin County’s Community Notification System (CNS) now supports integration with mobile device management (MDM) systems utilized my organizations to manage their smart devices.  The newly available MDM support allows organizations to automate the availability, or even automatically install, the Community Notification System’s Everbridge app (apple or android) on smart devices.  Organizations can now assist their employees on easily installing the Everbridge app helping ensure their employees are notified of emergency situations affecting them.

The Everbridge app not only allows those who have registered in the Community Notification System to receive alerts they have selected, but also allows users to be notified based on the current location of their device.  While we encourage residents in Gallatin County to register in the CNS to receive the full benefit, by simply downloading the Everbridge app users will receive emergency alerts based on their current location without registering.

If your MDM solution supports the AppConfig.org protocol (see below), you will be able to complete the following for your Everbridge Mobile App users from your MDM provider:

  • Distribute the app in your internal app store.
  • Push the app to your managed devices.
  • Remotely wipe the container and prevent container access.
  • Control ability to copy and paste.
  • Control ability to open attachments.

IT managers can work with their MDM provider to deploy this feature to their devices.  Questions can be directed to the Gallatin County Emergency Management office.

Gallatin County Supporting Los Angeles Fires

Two fire engines from Gallatin County departed this week as part of three Montana strike teams (16 fire apparatus) heading to help Los Angeles County.  Firefighters from Big Sky Fire Department and Central Valley Fire District have been deployed through a state to state system of resource sharing known as the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC).  These crews are expected to spend about two weeks in Los Angeles supporting the county in fighting the fires currently ravaging the area.  When Montana experiences significant wildfire seasons, like this past summer, we receive help from agencies in other states around the US.  The departments sending fire engines to LA are excited to have the opportunity to return the favor by helping out when we have the capability.  Additionally, the firefighters heading to California will gain valuable experience that they will bring back to Gallatin County when they return.

In addition to Big Sky Fire Department and Central Valley Fire District, the following Montana fire departments provided resources through this EMAC request:

  • Missoula Rural Fire District
  • Missoula Fire Department
  • Columbus Rural Fire District
  • Evergreen Fire Department
  • Marion Fire Department
  • Whitefish Fire Department
  • Big Fork Fire Department
  • Red Lodge Fire Department
  • Corvallis Fire Department
  • Park County Rural Fire District 1
  • Fisher River Fire District
  • Bull Lake Fire District
