National Emergency Warning Systems

Are you prepared?   In times of crisis, it’s the responsibility of governments and emergency agencies to make sure residents and visitors have the information they need to stay safe. The new European Electronic Communications Code (EECC) directive mandates that all EU countries deploy geo-located emergency communications through mobile networks that enable reverse 112 capabilities. The deadline for compliance is June 2022.

Each country in the EU is responsible for complying with the EECC directive and ensuring its citizens and visitors receive emergency alerts, warnings and other life-saving information during critical events.

But diverse populations communicate in different languages, through different media and on varying devices and communications networks.

Instructions, shelter-in-place or evacuation notices may vary based on the scale and location of the crisis.

Genasys NEWS not only meets all the EECC requirements, it offers industry-leading speed, throughput, and reliability.

The Genasys National Emergency Warning System can be deployed directly on multiple mobile carrier networks across SMS and CBC channels. This allows emergency communications personnel to send life-saving information to anyone, anywhere regardless of whether they’ve opted in to receive urgent notifications.

Messages can be delivered and managed through the Genasys cloud-based command console or mobile app. Dynamic maps, traffic information, weather forecasts, and sensors for earthquakes, flooding, landslides, fires and other IoT capabilities are integrated into the app command console.

The powerful geo-location capabilities of NEWS allow designated emergency management officials to send hyper-specific instructions to people in different areas and monitor their evacuation progress.

NEWS mass notification solution based on the network of mobile carriers.

Reach Everyone

100% of the mobile devices receive NEWS alerts and warnings, even the cellphones of tourists and visitors. No downloads, no configurations, no registrations, or opt-in necessary.

Geo-Location

Deliver warnings and alerts only to at-risk populations using NEWS geo-location and geo-fencing. This is key to maximizing attention rate, as people tend to ignore notifications that do not immediately affect them.

Maximize Reliability

With direct access to the mobile carriers, NEWS enables government officials and emergency managers to deliver local, regional or nationwide alerts, warnings and notifications quickly and reliably.

Cross Channel

NEWS delivers notifications via SMS and CBC as well as other communication channels, including social media, radio, TV, mobile apps and LRAD® public safety mass notification speaker arrays.
