Everbridge to showcase latest innovations in countrywide public alerting and emergency response at this week’s European Emergency Number Association (EENA) Conference 2023
OSLO, Norway, April 18, 2023 — Everbridge, Inc. (Nasdaq: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM) and national Public Warning solutions, today announced the completed deployment of the company’s countrywide population alerting system in six European nations – Germany, United Kingdom, Spain, Denmark, Norway, and Estonia. Within the past several months, each country has tested and implemented the Everbridge public safety technology to inform and protect a combined population of more than 200 million residents.
The latest deployments amount to a total of 25 countries now using Everbridge to help keep residents and visitors safe amid natural and manmade threats, including severe storms, floods, wildfires, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions, as well as geo-political disruptions, terrorist attacks, and industrial accidents.
In January of this year, Estonia officially launched Everbridge’s complete end-to-end Public Warning solution on a nationwide basis, featuring its state-of-the-art Public Warning Center, to protect over 1.3 million residents plus annual tourists. Estonian President Alar Karis signed new legislation allowing the system to be officially used starting January 19, 2023.
“It is vital that we have a robust and reliable means of alerting the public in the case of events threatening life, health, or national security,” said Sven Heil, CEO of RIKS, a foundation within the Estonian government’s Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications. “Everbridge delivered a solution that is easy-to-use, secure, and comprehensive, and did so on our tight delivery timeframe. After successful internal testing, we’re very pleased that the system is now live, and we’re confident that it will help us improve the safety of our communities.”
The new countrywide public alert system of Spain, powered by Everbridge, includes both Cell Broadcast coverage at the national level, as well as the publication of alerts via the Web and through mobile alerts. The platform can reach 99% of the population of Spain, including 47 million residents and nearly 80 million annual visitors, through mobile network operators Telefónica, Vodafone, Orange, and MásMóvil.
Everbridge deployed Cell Broadcast technology within two of the largest Mobile Network Operators in Germany as a key technology component of Germany’s nationwide emergency alerting system. Everbridge contracts with mobile network operators in Germany represents over 65% of the country’s mobile subscribers. The system was successfully tested on Nationwide Alert Day (Warntag) in September and again in February 2023. Widescale flooding in West Germany became a factor for the country to implement additional emergency alerting channels to the existing Modular Warning System (MoWaS).
Norway recently went live with its Everbridge-powered population alerting system. At the time of selection, Norwegian Minister of Justice and Emergency Preparedness Emilie Enger Mehl said at a press conference: “It will be a big boost for public security. We can send precise warnings about danger or other information to everyone in Norway who has a mobile phone within a few seconds.” Norway’s public alert system features Everbridge’s enhanced multi-channel, front-end interface with the ability to transmit cell broadcast alerts from a single console.
The United Kingdom’s emergency alert system is also officially live. The UK government successfully tested the platform on the mobile networks of EE, O2, and Three and will conduct a national test on April 23, 2023. The Everbridge deployment marks the UK’s first-ever nationwide emergency alerting system.
Residents and visitors in Denmark will receive warning alerts via S!RENEN, powered by Everbridge, directly on their mobile phones. Everbridge delivered Cell Broadcast to the Danish government via the Telenor Telia Network. The system is fully operational and will be tested nationally every May.
“It is a privilege to partner with so many forward-thinking nations in helping to protect their citizens from the many threats that exist in the world today,” said Valerie Risk, Vice President of Public Safety Solutions at Everbridge. “We are honored that these governments have placed their trust in Everbridge, and we do not take this responsibility lightly. Everbridge supports more countries than any provider, drawing on decades of emergency alert experience in providing governments with a reliable, secure, and geo-targeted means of protecting their people.”
Everbridge will showcase its market-leading population alerting, public safety, and emergency response technologies at the European Emergency Number Association (EENA) Conference taking place in Ljubljana, Slovenia on April 19-21. Everbridge is a GOLD sponsor of the event.
