Genasys Emergency Management and Zonehaven Evacuation Solutions Helping to Protect More than 10 Million U.S. Residents
SAN DIEGO, CA – April 21, 2022 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in critical communications systems and solutions that help protect and keep people safe, today announced new, multi-year Genasys Emergency Management (GEM) and Zonehaven software-as-a-service (SaaS) annual recurring revenue contracts in California, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, and Texas. The contracts include Colorado Springs, the first city in Colorado that will implement Zonehaven emergency evacuation resources.
“Last December’s Marshall Fire that burned more than 1,000 homes in Boulder County CO, and recent fires and evacuations in Florida, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, confirm wildfires are now a year-around threat in many states,” said Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer, Genasys Inc. “Zonehaven provides counties and communities with zone-specific notifications, including evacuation status, live incident updates, real-time weather, road and traffic conditions, nearby shelters, and other essential information, to better protect residents during wildfires and other crisis situations.
“In addition to the Zonehaven contract, the University of California Irvine (Cal Irvine), the City of Riverdale, Georgia, the Kentucky National Guard, Newton County, Missouri, and the City of Gladewater, Texas, have each entered into GEM agreements,” Mr. Danforth continued. “The Cal Irvine contract expands the critical communication services Genasys is providing to help keep students, staff and faculty safe. More GEM and Zonehaven contracts are anticipated this quarter.”
GEM empowers emergency managers to initiate and track alerts, and quickly respond to alert replies from hundreds, thousands, or even millions of people during disasters and other crises. Featuring multi-channel, multi-agency alerting, GEM delivers notifications via voice calls, SMS messages, email, desktop alerts, social media, IPAWS and other communication channels.
Zonehaven reduces evacuation time from hours to minutes by incorporating hyperlocal knowledge to model evolving disasters and the subsequent impact on evacuation zones, traffic patterns, and public safety. Zonehaven evacuation resources have been utilized to support communications and evacuations across multiple jurisdictions during major wildfires, active shooter incidents, and debris flow hazards.
