SAN DIEGO, CA – March 30, 2023 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in unified critical communications systems and solutions that help keep people safe, today announced a new multi-year Zonehaven evacuation management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) contract with San Diego County, California.
“San Diego joins Riverside County, Marin County, Alameda County, and other California jurisdictions deploying the full Genasys Protect platform to deliver multichannel public safety alerts, evacuation notifications, and life safety information to residents and visitors,” said Richard Danforth, Chief Executive Officer, Genasys, Inc. “Genasys Protect is the first and only unified platform that provides comprehensive emergency management and multichannel communications solutions before, during, and after disasters and other critical events.
“Last November, San Diego entered into a Genasys Emergency Management (GEM) software contract to replace the county’s previous regional notification system,” continued Mr. Danforth. “The county has also installed Genasys outdoor mass notification systems at several popular beaches to broadcast swimmer and beachgoer safety information. First responders, emergency management officials, and millions of county residents and visitors will now have access to our platform’s critical communications capabilities and resources.”
Charlie Crocker, Senior Vice President of SaaS Products, Genasys Inc. said, “Time is of the essence during multi-hazard crises. Fast, data-driven decisions save lives and simplify communication between agencies, responders, and the public. Genasys is the only emergency communications provider that combines modeling, multi-outlet alerting, and comprehensive evacuation management into a seamless, easy-to-use platform.”
Mr. Danforth added, “We continue to grow successful deployments of our Genasys Protect unified platform in the country’s most populous state. More than 18 million California residents and millions of visitors are covered by Genasys Protect. Additional jurisdictions in California, and in other states, are expected to implement our comprehensive suite of life safety solutions this fiscal year.”
