Effective January 1, 2018, the City of Laurel will start using a new emergency alerting notification system called “EVERBRIDGE.” All citizens and businesses are highly recommended to join this valuable alerting system to start receiving lifesaving alerts and information to assist in the event of a potential emergency or an immediate incident.

In order to participate in the alert notification system, we will currently be working with Prince George’s County, which means residents and visitors must proceed with the sign up process through the “ALERT PRINCE GEORGE’S website. However, all alerts will be from the City of Laurel during an emergency or Community events. We anticipate rolling out Laurel Alert sometime next year in 2018.

Dissemination of Public Information

Public Information consists of the processes, procedures, and systems to communicate timely, accurate, and accessible information on an incident’s cause, size, and current situation to the public, responders, media and additional stakeholders (both directly affected and indirectly affected). Public information must be coordinated and integrated across jurisdictions, agencies, and organizations; among Federal, State, tribal, and local governments; and with non-governmental organizations and the private sector.  Well-developed public information, education strategies, and communications plans help to ensure that lifesaving measures, evacuation routes, threat and alert systems, and other public safety information are coordinated and communicated to numerous audiences in a timely, consistent manner.

You can also get alerts from:
