Emergency Alert system now running on Everbridge


The Australian Government's Emergency Alert system is now running on Everbridge Public Warning in all states and territories.

Emergency Alert, first introduced in 2009, has recently been modernised using the SaaS-based Everbridge Public Warning platform.

The system allows police, fire, and emergency services to alert communities to a likely or actual emergency by sending location-based text messages to mobile phones and voice messages to landlines within a precise geo-targeted area. It also integrates with social media platforms.

"This system is a way for emergency services to warn our community of a pending threat, and we're pleased that Commonwealth funding is assisting in this risk mitigation which will benefit all Australians," said Minister for Emergency Management Senator Bridget McKenzie.

Examples of the events where the system would be used include bushfire, flood, cyclone, extreme heat, and terror attack.

"The Emergency Alert system was originally implemented in response to the 2009 summer bushfires and continues to play a vital role in keeping Australian communities safe," said Emergency Management Australia director General Joe Buffone.

Everbridge vice president of ANZ and Oceania Steve Foster said "We are honored to support Australia on the advancement of its national warning system.

"With no opting in or app download required, Everbridge's Public Warning platform delivers emergency alerts to at-risk populations on a nationwide scale to help keep Australian residents and visitors, when borders reopen, safe during bushfires and other critical events.

"Every country can benefit from a modern software platform that reaches everyone in times of crisis."
