MALIBU—The City of Malibu’s annual test of its Disaster Notification System, Everbridge, as part of National Preparedness Month that was scheduled for September 7 is cancelled and rescheduled for Thursday, September 9, at 4 p.m. in consideration of the Jewish holiday.

On September 9, the city sent a test message to all residents. No registration is needed. Residents who do not receive a message on September 9 may contact the City’s Public Safety staff for assistance to make sure they are in the system at or call 310-456-2489, ext. 368.

Most landlines and cell phone numbers in Malibu are automatically uploaded to the system. The public is advised to go to, create a profile, and enter their complete contact information, especially their home address, so that they can be geo-targeted for neighborhood-specific evacuation alerts. Businesses and employees in Malibu may also register their business address even if they don’t live in Malibu.
