Everbridge has been selected by Peru’s Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC) to provide the technology that will underpin Sistema de Mensajería de Alerta Temprana de Emergencia (Sismate), Peru’s Early Warning Emergency Messaging System.

Once the system is deployed, it will be used by Peru’s National Institute of Civil Defense to send critical messages to mobile phones before, during and after major incidents. Sismate is designed to serve more than 37 million people including Peru’s 33 million residents and four million annual visitors.

The Everbridge Platform has been deployed for national mobile device alerting in Sweden, Iceland, the Netherlands, Singapore, Greece, and a number of the largest states in India, and is currently being implemented in Australia. The company’s population warning system communicates across all phases of an incident, leverages location intelligence (static location, last known location, and expected location) and provides directed two-way communications.

“Everbridge is honored to support Peru with its national warning system,” said David Meredith, Everbridge’s CEO. “Peru joins a growing number of countries that have chosen to partner with Everbridge to implement a nationwide system to protect their population and visitors amid an escalating threat environment.”
