“We get a lot of information from the system,” said Tómas Gíslasen, Deputy CEO at 112, Iceland’s emergency service. “Knowing how many people there are in the area can help us understand the gravity of the situation and better prepare for the next steps in our rescue efforts.”
Everbridge PSInsights provides situational awareness with real-time visibility into the scene of an incident. The technology offers the required level of detail that helps emergency services communicate and respond quicker and more efficiently.
“During a critical event, such as severe weather, flash flooding, or wildfires, public authorities need to quickly act and communicate important life safety information to the public,” said Knut Gjerde, Senior Director of Public Warning at Everbridge. “When every second counts, authorities need to clearly understand the situation on the ground to refine the messages they send to everyone in the affected area to keep them safe. PSInsights provides public safety agencies the level of visibility they require to support the most effective response.”
Everbridge PSInsights sheds light on the “black box” in which public authorities operate so that they can:
- Know how many people are impacted by a critical event so they can prepare an effective response
- Determine the exact location of people at risk to send proper instructions or evacuation orders
- Understand the nationalities of those impacted so authorities can communicate in their native languages
- Keep track of the evacuation progress and crowd movement to ensure that no one is left behind
The visual map interface can also complement existing cell broadcast-based population alerting systems and integrate with many leading mass notification platforms.
