SAN DIEGO, CA – August 10, 2021 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in critical communications systems and solutions, today announced a five-year public safety alert software services contract from the municipality of Longueuil, Montreal’s second largest suburb and the fifth largest city in Quebec.
“Our Genasys Emergency Management (GEM) software service will deliver alerts and warnings to Longueuil residents through SMS, email, and phones during disasters and other crisis situations,” said Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer, Genasys Inc. “We’re replacing an incumbent system due to GEM’s better mapping and contact management, and overall ease of use.
“A key provision of the contract is the delivery of emergency alerts and life safety notifications in multiple languages to the more than 250,000 residents living in Longueuil,” Mr. Danforth added. “While most speak French, nineteen other languages are also spoken in the city, including English, Spanish, Arabic, Creole, Romanian, and Mandarin.
“The integration of GEM with Alert Ready, Canada’s national warning system, also enables Genasys to propagate Alert Ready notifications to Longueuil residents,” Mr. Danforth concluded.
GEM empowers government public safety officials to initiate and track alerts
, and quickly respond to alert replies from hundreds, thousands, or even millions of people during disasters and other critical events. By adding a powerful and intuitive orchestration and management layer on top of existing physical and digital infrastructure, GEM enhances the clarity, reach, and range of emergency alerts and mass notification.
