Unrivalled Technology and Expertise
The Fort Sask Alert System is powered by Everbridge. The alert system has been used by organizations in more than 100 countries for emergency notification and day-to-day incident communication. For example, when Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast in October 2012 the City of Boston used the Everbridge system to communicate with residents during the storm. As Sandy battered the East Coast, Everbridge sent more than 10 million critical alerts.
