The deadly 2018 wildfires in Paradise, California were a wake-up call for Mill Valley. Many of the city’s residents live in narrow, wooded canyons. What would happen to them should a wildfire start in their area?
Sure, they had emergency sirens installed, but most were incapable of broadcasting intelligent notifications about the nature of the issue. There was no way to transmit critical information to mobile phones, which depend on cell towers that can fail during an outage or wildfire.
Enter Genasys. City officials equipped their area with Genasys’ LRAD voice broadcast systems and wide-ranging connectivity options. The city replaced all five decades-old siren-only installations with advanced voice/siren systems that are satellite connected and have battery backup for 72 continuous operation hours. Through these changes, the Mill Valley community could feel safer and more informed.
What do you do when existing power and communications infrastructure fails? You use a backup plan. With Genasys’ advanced waveguide technology and superior voice intelligibility, Mill Valley now has a plan, a backup plan, and several other options to get the word out in an emergency.
