Everbridge Now Deployed to Power the Countrywide Public Warning System for the African Island Nation of Mauritius
- Republic of Mauritius has implemented Everbridge’s complete end-to-end Public Warning solution on a nationwide basis to protect nearly 3 million residents and annual tourists
- Everbridge continues to serve the last mile of Early Warning Systems in more countries than any other provider across the Americas, EMEA, and APAC regions
BURLINGTON, Mass., March 28, 2023 – Everbridge, Inc. (Nasdaq: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM) and national Public Warning solutions, today announced that the Republic of Mauritius completed implementation of its population alerting solution to help keep residents and visitors safe and informed in the event of an emergency. Home to 1.3 million residents and a popular destination for over 1.4 million annual tourists, Mauritius was recently named one of the Most Innovative Countries in the World.
To help ensure the safety of residents and visitors alike, Mauritius’ National Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Centre (NDRRMC) selected Everbridge to power the early warning system for the country’s four islands – the main island of Mauritius and the smaller islands of Rodrigues, Agaléga, and St. Brandon. Everbridge has been deployed across all government and law enforcement agencies, including the National Police, Military, Fire & Rescue Services, National Coast Guard, and Meteorological Services to immediately inform the public in the event of an emergency.
“The Everbridge public warning system allows us to turn around critical information very quickly,” explained Inspector Hemraj Kumar Mohit of NDRRMC. “Within minutes, we can reach large portions of the population leveraging a system with proven scale.”
Situated in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius remains prone to severe weather hazards such as cyclones, tsunamis, storm surges, landslides, and coastal flooding, as well as oil spills, HAZMAT incidents, and sugarcane fires. As witnessed in recent torrential rains, the new alert system sent critical, location-based messages via e-mail, SMS, and voice calls to mobile and landline phones before, during, and after the emergency, and was integrated with the Filtered Alert Hub, radio, and social media through the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP).
“We are honored to support the Republic of Mauritius on the evolution of its national warning system,” said Stefica Divkovic, Senior Vice President of EMEA at Everbridge. “Our Public Warning solution enables government organizations to immediately connect with people in an affected area during a critical event regardless of nationality, residency, or mobile device type. Every nation can benefit from a modern alerting platform that reaches all citizens in times of crisis.”
Mauritius’ emergency alerting system expands on Everbridge’s position as the global leader in nationwide Public Warning. More governments across the globe deploy the Everbridge population alerting solutions than any other provider, offering the ability to reach over two billion residents and visitors in countries and territories including Norway, Spain, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Germany, Estonia, Sweden, Iceland, Greece, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Peru, and multiple countries across the Middle East, as well as entire states within India and the United States.
