Response Coordination
Search & Rescue

Genasys hardware and software work together to minimize the impact of catastrophic hurricanes and tropical storms

The Genasys suite of solutions ensures real-time communication within your responding teams and offers round-the-clock protection for your communities—even when they don’t opt in. EVAC‘s zone-based planning streamlines the process of coordinating evacuations, notifying people, and guiding them to safety, while integrated weather sensors issue automated alerts through various channels, including a mobile citizen’s app and long-range speakers that deliver clear, understandable messages to those at risk. 

The map-based platform provides an instant snapshot of population, structures, vehicle count, and area size, enabling swift decision-making. Visualize evacuation progress through traffic AI modeling that accounts for road congestion and closures to aid the decision-making process. 

After the hurricane passes, Genasys’ targeted communications reach residents beyond jurisdictional boundaries, keeping them informed during reentry. CONNECT facilitates seamless collaboration between all participating agencies and volunteers in search and rescue operations via real-time chat. Helicopter and boat-mounted LRADs help locate survivors and reduce panic by informing them help is on the way.

Facilitate collaborative emergency response and effectively manage the mass movement of large groups of people with Genasys.
