Everbridge - Emergency Notification System

 

Fauquier County's Emergency Notification System

Everbridge is a web-based service that enables the County to provide mass notification quickly and easily. Notifications may include evacuations, missing person alerts, hazardous materials incident, flooding, and other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for life safety. Messages are delivered by phone call, text and email. Everbridge also provides notifications on weather warning specific to the address that is provided by a citizen during registration. Quiet times can be set so that citizens who wish to not be disturbed during certain times can specify those times. County officials can override the quiet mode in situations deemed "significant or life threatening" such as a tornado warning.

Please note that your caller ID will say Fauquier County and/or (540) 422-8830.

Plan Ahead for Disasters

Prepare for Winter!!


1) Stay off roads if at all possible. If trapped in your car, then stay inside.

2) Reduce the risk of a heart attack by avoiding overexertion when shoveling snow and walking in the snow.

3) Limit your time outside. If you need to go outside, then wear layers of warm clothing. Watch for signs of frostbite and hypothermia.

Frostbite causes loss of feeling and color around the face, fingers and toes.

    • Signs: Numbness, white or grayish-yellow skin, firm or waxy skin.
    • Actions: Go to a warm room. Soak in warm water. Use body heat to warm. Do not massage or use a heating pad.

Hypothermia is an unusually low body temperature. A temperature below 95 degrees is an emergency.

    • Signs: Shivering, exhaustion, confusion, fumbling hands, memory loss, slurred speech or drowsiness.
    • Actions: Go to a warm room. Warm the center of the body first—chest, neck, head and groin. Keep dry and wrapped up in warm blankets, including the head and neck.
