Barefoot Bay Recreation DistrictImplements CivicReady® Mass Notification Solution 

Service Enables Multi-Channel Distribution of Urgent and Routine Resident Communications 

Barefoot Bay, FL–July16, 2020–Barefoot Bay Recreation District has partnered with CivicReady to implement its mass notification solution. Available from CivicPlus, a leader in integrated technology for local government, the CivicReady solution will allow Barefoot BayRecreation District to issue urgent notifications, emergency instructions, warnings, and routine communications to subscribed residents via email, text message, and voicemail alert, to keep residents safe and informed. In the event of a local emergency, residents subscribed to CivicReady will benefit from immediate, actionable information and instructions sent via their preferred notification channel. For non-native English speaking residents, CivicReady voice call notifications can be automatically translated into one of 20 languages, and email and text notifications can be automatically translated into one of 63 languages to maximize the effectiveness of the solution in ensuring mass awareness of potentially impactful situations. 

The CivicReady solution also integrates with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Integrated Public Alert Warning System (IPAWS). The IPAWS system leverages national emergency communication channels, such as the Emergency Alert System (EAS), NOAA weather radios, digital road signage, and television broadcasts,to provide area-specific alerts in times of emergency. By integrating itsCivicReady system with IPAWS, Barefoot Bay Recreation District will be able to reachas many people as possibleduring an emergency event, including those who have not opted-in to text, phone, or email communications, as well as travelers and visitors in thearea.

FROM THE DISTRICT OFFICE: BADGES
Dear Residents,

Due to the uncertainty we are currently facing and that many seasonal residents have already returned to their northern homes without updating their badges, I have directed staff to honor all badges with “2020” expiration dates on them through April 2021. As the pools and facilities re-open, residents with badges containing “2020” expiration stickers will be admitted entrance as long as they are not on the suspension list (as BBRD’s long-term procedures have been practiced).

Residents are encouraged to get their new 2021 badges (which requires a new picture to be taken as the new badges are printed with the picture versus the old laminated paper badges) prior to April 2021 to lessen the number of people who will be waiting in line next Spring. Although the Administration Building is currently closed to the public, residents may contact the Calendar Coordinator (calendarcord@bbrd.org or 772.664.3141 Monday through Thursday 8am-4:30pm) to schedule an appointment to come in and get their picture taken and new badge printed. Temperatures (with touchless thermometers) will be taken prior to entrance to ensure everyone’s safety.

Sincerely,

John W. Coffey, ICMA-CM
