January 9, 2018 — Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running faster, today announced that the New York City Emergency Management Department (NYCEM) has selected Everbridge as the new mass notification platform for its citywide Notify NYC program. With a city population of over 8 million residents, nearly 4 million daily commuters, and approximately 60 million visitors a year, Notify NYC is New York City’s official source for critical information about emergencies and city services.
“As the largest city in the United States, with a significant population of out-of-area commuters and visitors, we recognized the need for a highly scalable critical communications system to keep our residents, businesses and visitors safe and informed during a wide range of emergencies and public safety events,” said NYC Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Esposito. “After an open and competitive procurement process, Everbridge was selected to support New York City’s emergency mass notification needs. The City is excited to partner with Everbridge in order to provide critical services at a reasonable value.”
The Notify NYC program will now be powered by the Everbridge Critical Event Management platform and used by NYCEM to distribute geographically-targeted public safety information such as Amber Alerts, weather warnings, life safety threats, evacuation notifications and community announcements across multiple communication methods including SMS, email, IPAWS, telephone and social media. In addition, over 30 city departments will leverage Everbridge for internal communications and staffing notifications.
