Miami Lakes, FL –The Town of Miami Lakes has partnered with Florida Department of Emergency Management and Everbridge to launch its Emergency Management and mass notification system in the Town of Miami Lakes. The system will enable the Town to reach its residents and visitors effectively in the case of an emergency. It will also help the Town to contact its citizens, staff and emergency personnel with the right messages at the right time, integrating the communication flow during a crisis.
