Employers, local governments or universities using the Everbridge Mass Notification Platform to deliver vital information during emergency incidents, critical activities or weather events, can now get the most current notifications and share responses via the Everbridge ContactBridge application.
ContactBridge, Everbridge’s free, native mobile application, facilitates two-way conversations with mobile recipients. Users can deliver messages and push notifications to recipients on their mobile devices, request additional information through polling, and provide recipients with the ability to submit their own on-the-scene reports.
The ContactBridge application adds a rich new dimension to mass communications and creates situational intelligence by allowing mobile users to share geo-location information, pictures, and free-form text – providing eyes and ears on the scene as a situation develops. Subscribing organizations and communities can send notifications to mobile devices without the use of SMS or email.
Subscribing organizations and communities may also provide users with the ability to initiate messages and share messages with their extended network directly from the Everbridge ContactBridge application via E-mail, Text Message or Twitter.
ContactBridge feedback is captured in a centralized dashboard. Users can easily view poll responses and other requests for data sorted by timeframe, or use the unsolicited tab to review broader feedback from the community.
With full control over privacy settings, users can decide what information is shared and sent to a specific organization or community government.
NOTE: This application requires users to be registered users of the Everbridge Web Member Portal. This application also requires a current subscription for the notifying organization or community to the Everbridge Mass Notification Platform. Battery consumption may increase when location services are enabled.

What's New in Version 6.0.2
basic functionality OK, but not ready for prime time
After some setup finagling, the app can be configured to display alert notices.
On the other hand, there are some features that Just Don't Work:
1) The Calendar function simply goes into a time-out, locking the app. The only way to escape is to close the app. I don't know whether this is specific to my local alert system or a generic problem with the app.
2) What the heck is "passcode" mode? I'm already logged in with a passWORD, established during the initial setup; there was no mention of a passCODE in addition to the passWORD. What does this mode do, and why should I care? Again, I can't say whether this may work for some alert systems but not others.
This app requires messages to be loaded manually even though the badge notification says messages are pending. Launching the app shows "No Messages" even though there can be dozens because they will not load automatically. Lobbying our county to drop this amateur app and service.
