Everbridge Wins Nationwide Early Warning Contract in Peru
Monday, December 02, 2019 | Comments

Peru’s Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC) selected Everbridge to power the country’s Sistema de Mensajería de Alerta Temprana de Emergencia (Sismate) early warning emergency messaging system. The news marks the completion of contract negotiations with the MTC that Everbridge initially disclosed in September, without naming the country.

After the Sismate is deployed, it will be activated once Peru’s National Institute of Civil Defense detects a major incident. The system, powered by Everbridge Public Warning, will send critical messages to mobile phones before, during and after the emergency. Sismate alerts can also be used in drills and to provide support in search-and-rescue operations. The Sismate is designed to serve more than 37 million people including Peru’s 33 million residents and 4 million annual visitors.

“Everbridge is honored to support Peru with its national warning system,” said David Meredith, CEO at Everbridge. “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.”
