The Benefits Esri with Genasys Protect.

Seamless Mapping Data

Hazards, including floods, wildfires, and hurricanes, do not follow jurisdictional boundaries. With Esri, Genasys Protect provides a seamless playbook for evacuation and emergency response across county lines.

Increased Data Intelligence

Pre-planned data combines with real-time data (weather, traffic, and hazard extents), and simulation tools to help make better decisions faster.

Multi-agency Alignment

Effectively respond to all-hazard events by providing a common operating picture across multiple agencies, reducing the time to make decisions and communicate life-saving messages.

Real-time Integration

Real-time integration between GIS data and operational solutions, like Tablet Command, public notification systems, and Intterra, accentuate a common operating picture for both agencies and the public.  

“By importing our GIS data into Genasys Protect we have a more complete catalog of structures, landmarks, and critical facilities in the system for enhanced notification zone development and understanding.  As a result, when an emergency occurs, whether it be a snow storm, wildfire, flood, or violent crime, decisions can be made more accurately and quickly, notifications and information dissemination to the public can be more granular, and evacuations can be managed more effectively.”
