In response to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, Regroup Mass Notification with its partner CivicPlus are offering cities and counties across the nation risk-free access to Regroup’s award-winning mass communication platform. Thirty-six cities and counties have already taken advantage of the special offer and been onboarded to CivicReady, Regroup’s mass notification solution for local governments, to help them coordinate emergency response plans, and mitigation and containment of the virus.
The two industry leaders are offering a 90-day risk-free access to CivicReady, at cost. The mass notification system was built for local governments that need to disseminate important information quickly, reliably and securely. CivicReady, which is powered by Regroup, makes emergency and day-to-day communications simple by enabling ultra-fast message delivery via SMS/text, email, public address speakers, voice call, push notification and more. Messages can be delivered in more than 60 languages and the system integrates with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) and social media channels for community outreach when it is needed most.
For those interested in taking advantage of this unique opportunity, it can be implemented in as little as three business days. Additionally, local governments benefit from:
- Geotargeting capabilities to send messages to contacts within a specified location
- COVID-19 Map Layers that increase situational awareness for city and county leaders
- Each account will be pre-loaded with a list of citizens’ contact information so administrators can start using it immediately
- 24/7 award-winning support
- Unlimited contacts, groups and admins within each account
- And much more.
“In these times, more than ever, effective communication will save lives and reduce the pandemic’s impact on our nation and society. We’re offering this trial period in partnership with CivicPlus for cities and counties that need to communicate important information, instructions, and closings to citizens and travelers in seconds,” said Chris Utah, COO of Regroup. “As a former Marine and veteran, I’ve learned that being ready and taking prompt action in times of emergency is vital.
