Colorado Wing Alerting System

Colorado Wing Alerting System 



Colorado Wing uses Everbridge as its alerting platform.  This platform allows for important and urgent messages to be delivered to any active COWG member.  Typically, these messages are delivered for the purposes of Emergency Services, but Everbridge allows messages to be for other purposes across the wing.

The COWG alerting system utilizes contact information (Cell Phone, Home Phone & Email) from the Civil Air Patrol eServices system.  Colorado Wing members should ensure their individual contact information is accurate within eServices to guarantee the delivery of alerting system messages.
