16.3 Million Californians Now Covered by Genasys Critical Communications Systems and Evacuation Resources
SAN DIEGO, CA – December 12, 2022 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in unified critical communications systems and solutions that help keep people safe, today announced a multi-year Genasys Emergency Management (GEM) and Zonehaven software-as-a-service (SaaS) contract with Monterey County, California. GEM is displacing a competitor’s critical event management system.
“Monterey County’s diverse coastline and rugged mountains, which include the steepest coastal slope in the contiguous United States, present formidable emergency management challenges,” said Richard Danforth, Chief Executive Officer, Genasys, Inc. “The county’s major disasters over the last 50 years include severe coastal storms, flooding, landslides, earthquakes, and several large wildfires.
“To better protect the county’s 430,000 residents and more than 3 million annual visitors during disasters and other crisis situations, Monterey County emergency management personnel and first responders are deploying Genasys critical communications software and evacuation resources,” continued Mr. Danforth. “10 of California’s 15 coastal counties have implemented our unified multichannel platform for county emergency management. In two additional coastal counties, San Francisco and Orange, certain cities and tourist areas are covered by Genasys public safety solutions.”
Mr. Danforth concluded, “Our strategic shift towards a higher-margin, recurring revenue model continues to gain momentum as evidenced by our rapid SaaS growth in California and expansion into 19 other states. Fiscal 2023 investments in software sales are expected to fuel further expansion in existing markets and propel us into new vertical markets and geographic regions.”
GEM extends the clarity, reach and range of critical communications by delivering targeted emergency alerts, public safety warnings and information to people at risk before, during, and after crisis situations.
Zonehaven software services incorporate hyperlocal knowledge to model evolving disasters and the subsequent impact on evacuation zones, traffic patterns, and public safety. Zonehaven resources have been utilized to support real-time evacuation alerts and repopulation notifications across multiple jurisdictions during major wildfires, flooding, debris flows, active shooter incidents, police actions, and other life safety hazards.
