Wednesday, January 26, 2022 | Comments

Citizen, a mobile safety app provider, will acquire disaster preparedness technology firm harbor, in a deal that is set to expand the product offerings of Citizen for its rapidly growing base of 10 million users.

Harbor is a platform for helping people, families and communities be more ready and resilient in the face of disruption through data-driven, hyper-personalized risk management tools, and step-by-step plans that make disaster preparedness easy and accessible.

"Transforming public safety is a massive undertaking and requires an incredible team and set of products to accelerate our mission globally,” said Citizen Founder and Chief Executive Officer Andrew Frame. “We're excited with this acquisition of harbor, along with their technology, products and team. This is a great combination of forces."

Since launching in 2016, Citizen has built a safety network in more than 60 cities in the United States unlike any other. Citizen freely provides users with real-time, verified community-oriented alerts, keeping millions informed of what's happening around them and empowering them to avoid nearby threats while connected with a safety network that works to keep them safe. In cities like New York and Los Angeles, one in every three people have the app on their phone.

In August of last year, Citizen launched Protect, an on-demand, mobile protection service with live agents available 24/7 that can offer personalized support based on an individual’s safety needs. Harbor CEO Dan Kessler is joining Citizen as chief business officer to support the company's continued product evolution.

"I couldn't be happier for our team to join Citizen and its mission to make your world a safer place," said Kessler. "There's so much we will do together to continue building our new technology category around mobile safety."
