• Alert Temple Terrace – The City of Temple Terrace is now working with Everbridge, a leader in unified critical communications, to keep residents, businesses, staff and emergency personnel safe and informed with quick and reliable emergency notifications. The City will use Alert Temple Terrace to communicate with citizens and businesses during emergencies and other critical events. Residents and businesses are encouraged to register to receive these alerts. (Those who previously signed up for emergency notifications using the legacy RapidNotify Emergency System also should register.) The opt-in website for both RapidNotify and new subscribers is www.templeterrace.com/alerttempleterrace.
The Emergency Notification System will provide a variety of alerts, ranging from missing children, police and fire threats and severe weather warnings. Messages will be sent to subscribers on their preferred contact paths — email, cell/home phone, SMS (text), Push Notification, TTY/TDD and more — to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information. Residents and businesses listed in the City of Temple Terrace 911 database will be automatically subscribed to alerts by landline phone. Everbridge also allows citizens and businesses to self-register, provide additional contact information, or to opt-out.
