Woodsfield, OH- Antero Resources donated $7,700 to Monroe County Emergency Management Agency officials today to support continued operations of the county’s public alert communications system. The technology, Everbridge All Call System, which Antero has supported since installation in 2015, is a technology platform that enables more effective and efficient digital communications to Monroe County residents aimed at protecting and enhancing community safety.

“This technology is an important tool in keeping Monroe County residents safe and well-informed. As a company whose first priority is safety, we are proud to provide annual support for the operations and maintenance of this system,” said Al Schopp, Antero’s Chief Administrative Officer and Senior Regional Vice President. “Working with the county EMA to continue this platform is especially personal for our employees, who live and work in the area.”

The system can be utilized during emergency situations, such as severe weather or other events that may threaten public safety, as well as to broadly share important community notifications and other updates.

“This mass notification system has proven to be an important tool in communicating quickly and efficiently to county residents during times of severe weather or emergencies,” said Phillip Keevert, Monroe County Emergency Management Agency Director. “Antero was instrumental in its creation and we appreciate their continued generosity and commitment to keeping the system in operation.”

In addition to helping establish and fund operations for the Everbridge System in Monroe County, Antero has also helped Washington County launch a similar system and closely supported first responders in Noble and Belmont Counties.
