Toronto Zoo Selects Everbridge to Help Safeguard Both Guests and Staff

Canada’s largest zoo deploys Everbridge Mass Notification solution to rapidly communicate with visitors and staff during an emergency

BURLINGTON, Mass. – June 18, 2024 Everbridge, Inc. (Nasdaq: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM) and national public warning solutions, today announced the Toronto Zoo selected Everbridge Mass Notification to safeguard its over 1,000 permanent, part-time, seasonal, and volunteer staff, as well as to be available to alert the Zoo’s approximately 1.3 million guests per year.

The Zoo is home to roughly 3,000 animals, representing over 280 different species, spanning 500 acres surrounded by Rouge National Urban Park. The Zoo has five indoor pavilions (African Rainforest, Americas, Australasia, Malayan Woods and IndoMalaya) and several other indoor venues, such as the newly renovated Greenhouse and Wildlife Health Centre, which includes an animal hospital and reproductive lab, and the administration and service buildings.
