Partnership extends critical capabilities to enhance hazard mitigation with advanced evacuation management
SAN DIEGO, CA – November 9, 2023 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in protective communications systems and solutions, today announced its partnership with Ladris Technologies, Inc., an artificial intelligence software provider, to deliver comprehensive disaster evacuation modeling solutions across North America and Europe.
Ladris software allows emergency managers, fire departments, law enforcement agencies, and other public sector officials to simulate detailed population responses for all-risk emergencies, including evacuation times and traffic conditions across any number of what-if scenarios.
“Our partnership with Ladris brings together two best-in-class platforms,” said Charlie Crocker, Senior Vice President of SaaS at Genasys. “We have combined the most advanced modeling capabilities to forecast evacuation times and traffic conditions with Genasys Protect, the leading zone-based evacuation and notification platform.” Crocker continued, “The combined solution revolutionizes the tools emergency responders have to plan and respond more effectively.”
Through this combined solution, emergency managers, law and fire officials can use reliable, local data and evacuation zones for planning and operations, increasing pre-planning capabilities and situational awareness. This is particularly valuable for designing and executing progressive evacuation strategies and making key decisions for traffic control, congestion management and infrastructure optimization. Traditionally, it took years and significant expense to use data to manage and plan evacuations. First responders were often using historic, static data when it came to answering the question of how long it might take to evacuate a region. Now, emergency management personnel have advanced models to forecast evacuation times and optimize based on critical intelligence. This additional level of intelligence is key in fast-moving scenarios such as wildfires, where time is of the essence.
“Our partnership with Genasys will enable emergency managers, law, fire, and other agencies to plan and respond with state-of-the art response capabilities and operational support.” said Leo Zlimen, CEO of Ladris. “Working together with Genasys, this solution raises the overall capacity of emergency managers to effectively respond to the ever-increasing number of disasters.”
