Are you prepared?

Reliable Emergency Communication

Reliable communication for maintaining civil order, conducting search and rescue operations, and providing relief distribution is critical to saving lives.

NEWS

Mass Notification Solution based on the network of mobile carriers

The Genasys National Emergency Warning System can be deployed directly on multiple mobile carrier networks across SMS and CBC channels. This allows emergency communications personnel to send life-saving information to anyone, anywhere regardless of whether they’ve opted in to receive urgent notifications.

Messages can be delivered and managed through the Genasys cloud-based command console or mobile app. Dynamic maps, traffic information, weather forecasts, and sensors for earthquakes, flooding, landslides, fires and other IoT capabilities are integrated into the app command console.

The powerful geo-location capabilities of NEWS allow designated emergency management officials to send hyper-specific instructions to people in different areas and monitor their evacuation progress.

Reach Everyone

100% of the mobile devices receive NEWS alerts and warnings, even the cellphones of tourists and visitors. No downloads, no configurations, no registrations, or opt-in necessary.

Geo-Location

Deliver warnings and alerts only to at-risk populations using NEWS geo-location and geo-fencing. This is key to maximizing attention rate, as people tend to ignore notifications that do not immediately affect them.

Maximize Reliability

With direct access to the mobile carriers, NEWS enables government officials and emergency managers to deliver local, regional or nationwide alerts, warnings and notifications quickly and reliably.

Cross Channel

NEWS delivers notifications via SMS and CBC as well as other communication channels, including social media, radio, TV, mobile apps and LRAD® public safety mass notification speaker arrays.

Warning and information are just as important as food and water before, during, and after the occurrence of an emergency situation.

PROVEN PERFORMANCE:

AUSTRALIA

In the aftermath of the deadly Black Saturday bushfires that claimed 173 lives in 2009, the Australian government worked with mobile telecom providers and SMS delivery companies to provide a national public warning system to help save lives during bushfires, flooding, severe weather and other crisis situations.

Since 2013, Genasys has partnered with Nokia to deliver more than 180 millions SMS emergency notifications throughout Australia to help protect and save lives.
