Citizen Notifications Showcase: Winter Weather

As winter weather descends, local municipalities face unique challenges, but with GOGov's Citizen Notifications and Local Government Branded Mobile App, these challenges transform into opportunities for efficient communication. Let's explore how our state-of-the-art technology reshapes the way municipalities engage with citizens before, during, and after winter storms.

Before the Storm: Strategic Advisories and Predictions

In anticipation of the impending winter storm, GOGov empowers municipalities to proactively disseminate critical information. Imagine residents receiving a push notification a few days before the storm:

Winter Storm Warning Example Notification:

Headline: Winter Storm Warning
Tagline: Expect [weather conditions]; [#] inches of snow expected.
A major winter storm will be hitting our area on [date]. Please use caution if you have to travel.
We are expecting up to [#] of snow. The [city/town/village/county] has declared a snow emergency for [amount of time].

This alert serves as an early warning and guides residents to relevant information within the app, promoting preparedness for the upcoming weather event.

During the Storm: Real-time Updates and Community Connection

As the winter storm unfolds, real-time updates become paramount. Residents receive instant push notifications as snowfall intensifies and road closures occur:

Winter Storm Road Closure Example Notification:

Headline: UPDATE: [Road/Street/Highway/Location] is closed due to Heavy Snow
Tagline: [Road/Street/Highway/Location] is closed until further notice.
Due to [reason], [Road/Street/Highway/Location] is closed until further notice.
We will alert you when it is re-opened, so please check back for updates.

This real-time alert keeps residents connected to the latest developments, providing essential information to navigate the ongoing storm.

After the Storm: Timely Openings and Community Recovery

Following the storm's passage, municipalities utilize the app to communicate recovery efforts and reopening information. Residents receive a push notification about the reopening of local facilities:

Post Winter Storm Opening Example Notification:

Headline: UPDATE: [Road/Street/Highway/Location] is now open
Tagline: [Road/Street/Highway/Location] is open and all snow has been cleared.
Due to [reason], [Road/Street/Highway/Location] is now open and all snow has been cleared. Please be careful as snow crews are still working to remove all snow and ice.
We will alert you when it is re-opened, so please check back for updates.

This notification informs residents about positive developments and encourages them to actively participate in community activities again.
