Our commitment to Early Warnings for All

In 2022, in response to increasing threats from climate change, the UN announced an Executive Action Plan, led by the WMO to ensure every person on Earth is protected by early warning systems by 2027.​

A Multi-Hazard Early Warning System (MHEW) is designed to enable individuals, communities, governments, businesses and others to take timely action to reduce disaster risks and save lives in advance of hazardous events. It comprises of:​​

  1. Disaster risk knowledge​
  2. Observations & forecasting​
  1. Warning dissemination & communication  ​
  2. Preparedness & response ​

Everbridge public safety solutions underpin these four pillars of the UN ‘Early Warning for All’ initiative, enabling disaster risk and resilience teams to:

  • Be prepared​
  • Know earlier 
  • Response & recover​
  • Reach everyone

Public safety solutions help public authorities, national and local security services, emergency call centers, and municipalities manage incidents of all sizes.
