Genasys IMNS and Zonehaven Emergency Evacuation Software to Help Protect Marin County, CA Residents and Visitors
SAN DIEGO, CA – June 15, 2021 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in critical communications systems and solutions, today announced the Southern Marin Fire Protection District (SMFD) ordered Genasys Integrated Mass Notification Systems (IMNS) for five locations to provide early warnings and emergency mass notifications during wildfires and other hazardous events.
“Genasys IMNS installations in Mill Valley, CA have proven highly effective since being activated in 2019 and are important assets in the city’s early warning and emergency responses,” said Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of Genasys Inc. “The SFMD IMNS installations, which will feature solar power and battery backup, are part of Marin County’s continuing public safety efforts to help keep residents and visitors safe during crisis situations.”
When completed, Mill Valley, the SMFD and Marin County will be able to activate and operate all IMNS installations in the county using Genasys Emergency Management (GEM) Command-and-Control software. Further county installations are contemplated.
The Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA) is also implementing the evacuation planning capabilities and public safety resources of recent Genasys acquisition, Zonehaven.
“The MWPA’s procurement of Zonehaven’s SaaS solution was conducted in a separate transaction earlier this year,” Mr. Danforth added. “Genasys IMNS and Zonehaven EVAC software provide first responders, public safety agencies and communities with vital preparedness and emergency response capabilities.”
In a June 9, 2021 news story, Zonehaven General Manager, Charlie Crocker, discussed how the Zonehaven platform helps first responders and the public during emergencies: ktvu.com/video/942805
