Genasys Teams with ASELF to Support Civil Protection During Wildfires, Flooding and Other Life Safety Threats
MADRID – October 11, 2022 – Genasys Inc., a global leader in critical communications systems and solutions that help keep people safe, today announced that it has joined the Spanish Firefighters Association (ASELF) as a protective member. Founded over 50 years ago, ASELF currently has more than 70 protective, collaborative or sponsoring members, among which are industry-leading companies in Fire Safety, Emergency Management and Civil Protection.
“Wildfires in Spain are increasing in frequency, size and intensity, with 2022 being the most extreme fire season in the last ten years,” said Richard Danforth, Chief Executive Officer, Genasys Inc. “In addition to severe wildfire threats, recent torrential rain caused deadly flooding in several areas of eastern Spain. We are teaming with ASELF to expand both our support of firefighters and our work with Spain’s civil protection administrations to adopt comprehensive emergency management and evacuation solutions that can help save lives.”
Mr. Danforth continued, “Our Genasys Emergency Management (GEM) platform empowers national, regional and local emergency managers and civil protection agencies to send geo-located alerts, notifications and information to at-risk populations through multiple channels, including landlines, mobile phones, social networks, desktop and laptop computers, digital signs, and other delivery methods.
“In addition to real-time, multichannel alerting, GEM includes our transformative Zonehaven evacuation and repopulation resources,” added Mr. Danforth. “Zonehaven reduces evacuation time from hours to minutes by incorporating hyperlocal knowledge to model evolving wildfires, flooding and other disasters, and the subsequent impact on evacuation zones, traffic patterns, and public safety.”
