LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/15/12 -- Everbridge, Inc., the world's recognized leader in incident notification and management solutions, announced the successful testing of Everbridge Aware® by the City of Chicopee, MA. This city-wide test of the Everbridge solution demonstrated the performance and speed required by Chicopee officials, and met all of the city's expectations. The City of Chicopee recently selected Everbridge Aware to provide reliable emergency and incident notifications to its residents.
"A measure of how effective we would consider an emergency notification system to be is speed of delivery. When you consider that 97% of all devices were contacted within the first 15 minutes of the test broadcast, we think that meets any standard for fast and effective communication," said Frank Cervone, Senior Network Engineer, City of Chicopee.
"We spent a long time reviewing options in the market. When we decided to adopt a system, we wanted to make sure we had the best we could find," Cervone continued. "We really like the extensive set of custom tools, as well as two-way interaction in the notification process that Everbridge Aware offers us. The ability to send information and get real-time situational information back from our citizens is amazing technology."
