Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global provider of critical event management (CEM), has announced a number of major US cities relying on the company´s platform to coordinate emergency response and safeguard the public from the combined threats posed by COVID-19, as well as wildfires in the western part of the country and hurricanes along the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf Coasts.
State and local governments need to be proactive in their response and recovery to events impacting the public that range from severe weather, active shooter, and hazmat situations to occurrences such as heat advisories, rolling blackouts, large-scale gatherings, protests and construction projects. These events require information to be shared with residents, visitors and emergency personnel, over any device, providing the confidence that critical information like evacuation routes, lockdowns, or road closures reach recipients immediately.
In Hoboken, New Jersey, Isaias´s heavy winds downed trees and power lines, leaving more than one million people statewide without power.
Everbridge is a global software company that provides enterprise software applications that automate and accelerate organizations´ operational response to critical events in order to Keep People Safe and Businesses Running™. For more information, visit www.everbridge.com,
