GLEN CARBON - The Village of Glen Carbon has partnered with CivicPlus®, their website provider, to implement its mass notification software solution. The mass notification system, called CivicReady, will be able to issue urgent notifications, emergency instructions, warnings, and routine communications to subscribed residents via email, text message, and voicemail to keep people safe and informed. In an emergency, community members subscribed to the system will benefit from immediate, actionable information and instructions sent via their preferred notification channel.

“After researching many of the local government mass communication options, CivicReady offered the most user-friendly, comprehensive way to connect with residents in the Village,” said Nicole Dicks, Communications Manager. “From urgent notifications to routine communications, subscribed citizens can select how they would like to be informed and what information they would like to receive,” said Dicks. CivicReady will be used in conjunction with Notify Me® email alerts that residents can continue to subscribe to for website update notifications.
