City of New Orleans (NOLA) boasts a booming tourism sector thanks in part to its unique culture, food, and historic architecture. NOLA has hosted many major events over the past few years, including the Super Bowl in 2013. During Mardi Gras season, thousands of travelers from around the globe visit NOLA to experience the festive celebration, which typically generates over $840 million in annual revenue for the city. Since the city hosts so many visitors from across the country on a regular basis, city officials need to be able to send major event and public safety notifications to anyone in the city who may need information or instructions during an incident.
