When an incident occurs overseas, governments may need to contact their citizens in the affected country. It may be necessary to send planes to bring people home. Travelers need information in their native language from a reliable source to help them stay safe.
Everbridge Traveler Alert makes it possible for government officials to identify how many citizens are in a specific country. Governments can alert their travelling citizens and provide advice on how to stay safe with regular updates until the danger is passed. Knowing how many citizens are affected helps governments to coordinate an appropriate response.
This solution is in use by several countries today to alert their citizens overseas during the coronavirus pandemic.
For inbound roamers, Everbridge Public Warning can be used to trigger alerts to all foreign visitors upon entering a country.
