Zonehaven Used in Multiple California Counties to Communicate Flooding and Debris Flow Hazards
SAN DIEGO, CA – January 4, 2023 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in unified critical communications systems and solutions that help protect and keep people safe, today announced a Genasys Emergency Management (GEM) and Zonehaven software-as-a-service (SaaS) contract from three contiguous Utah counties. Genasys replaced competitors’ emergency notification systems.
“Eastern Utah counties Daggett, Duchesne and Uintah join 39 counties in five Western states employing Genasys public safety software services under multi-year contracts to better protect their residents during disasters and critical events,” said Richard Danforth, Chief Executive Officer, Genasys Inc. “A national monument, a large dam in a national recreation area, and extensive oil and natural gas production facilities are located in these Utah counties. Emergency management officials will use GEM and Zonehaven to alert and evacuate people endangered by wildfires, flooding, oil and natural gas incidents, and other life safety hazards.”
In California, Genasys’ Zonehaven has been used the last two weeks by eight northern counties to communicate the location and extent of multiple flooding and debris flow incidents created by atmospheric river conditions. These incidents were exacerbated in areas where recent wildfires burned.
Charlie Crocker, Sr. Vice President of SaaS Products, Genasys Inc. said, “Evacuation advisories, warnings, and orders were mainly focused in areas burned by the Bobcat, Lake and CZU Complex Fires in 2020. County fire, law enforcement, and emergency managers are using GEM and the Zonehaven EVAC platform to identify flood areas and road closures and then communicating this critical information to the public using our AWARE site and several additional communication channels.”
Mr. Danforth added, “Tens of millions of residents in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, and Utah are now covered by our unified public safety platform. Increasingly, U.S. jurisdictions in Genasys’ growing business pipeline are becoming customers as they recognize the many advantages of our multi-solution platform and regional approach to emergency management, evacuations, and repopulations.”
The Genasys unified public safety platform empowers first responders and emergency management agencies to deliver alerts, notifications and information through voice calls, SMS, email, desktop alerts, social media, IPAWS, and many other communication channels.
