Now Offering – Incident Zones

Gallatin County Emergency Management

Gallatin County has a new tool in our emergency alerting toolbox.  We now have the ability to create Incident Zones which are persistent alerting areas.  This means we define an alerting area and any new person who enters that area after the initial alert is sent also receives the alert when they enter the zone.  We see some great opportunities for this capability for incidents such as missing people, evacuated areas and many more.  Of course with many things in our world, this is just one tool and not the sole solution for interacting with the community.  In order for people to receive these alerts when they travel into an Incident Zone, they must have the Everbridge app, an Android phone or the Google Maps app.
