More local, state, and national governments across the globe deploy the Everbridge Platform than any other solution, offering the ability to reach over 550 million people in more than 200 countries. Everbridge represents the first population alerting provider to support five European Union (EU) countries in conjunction with the EU mandate requiring member countries to have a population-wide alerting system in place by June 2022. With today’s news, Everbridge now supports population-wide alerting in 11 countries across Europe, Asia, Oceania, The Middle East, Africa, and South America including Australia, Greece, Iceland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Singapore and Sweden. Everbridge’s population alerting capabilities also power some of the most populous states in North America including Florida, New York, and California, as well as over 3,700 municipalities, counties and cities within 49 of the 50 United States, within all of Canada’s provinces, and throughout Europe and Asia, including deployments within multiple populous states in India.

“Everbridge’s Public Warning solution enables government organizations and public safety agencies to immediately connect with every person in an affected area during a critical event regardless of nationality, residency or mobile handset type,” said Vernon Irvin, Chief Revenue Officer at Everbridge. “Given the impact to public safety and economies around the world from the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, every national and state government can benefit from a modern and scalable platform to reach all citizens in times of crisis.”

As the most scalable platform in the industry, Everbridge provides the only public warning system combining cell-broadcast and address-, group-, and location-based, multi-channel technologies. The hybrid platform enables countries to protect against coronavirus; share updates on viral hotspots and pandemic best practices; coordinate first responders and healthcare resources; establish two-way communications with at-risk populations; and manage disruptions to transportation, education and other critical services. In addition, the platform also provides critical event management capabilities across a broad range of threats including natural disasters, terrorism, cyberattacks, and other security events.

The citizens ofNorway, for example, received critical countrywide communications earlier this year during the onset of COVID-19. The Norwegian Directorate for Health sent a record 5.4 million messages to every mobile phone in Norway using Everbridge Public Warning. The Directorate for Health also sent a message to all non-Norwegian phones roaming inside the country in English, French, German, Spanish, Polish and Russian, providing critical instructions for foreign nationals.

“Everbridge provides the only hybrid public warning system that leverages the speed and network throughput of cell broadcast technology and the reach, population movement analytics, multi-language capability, and two-way communications of location-based SMS,” said Imad Mouline, Chief Technology Officer at Everbridge. “Governments require the best of both options – the capability to deliver a massive number of messages very quickly as well as the ability to target precisely who receives alerts. Everbridge represents the only population alerting provider that eliminates these tradeoffs and delivers optimized capabilities based on the needs of the use case in each country.”
