Tavares is now utilizing a mass notification system, called Tavares Alert, that will allow city officials to quickly communicate with residents during time-sensitive situations. The system is capable of placing thousands of telephone calls within a matter of minutes. The City can also send text messages to cell phones, e-mail accounts and TTY/TDD receiving devices for the hearing impaired.
The City can target messages to various groups, such as residents or businesses, or by simply selecting specific geographical locations utilizing City maps.
Tavares Alert will be used to supplement current communication plans and augment public safety/first responder services.
