The Republic of Mauritius has recently implemented a population alerting solution which is designed to help keep people safe and informed in the event of an emergency.

To help power the project, Mauritius’ National Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Centre (NDRRMC) selected Everbridge and the company’s solution has been implemented across all four islands – the main island itself as well as Rodrigues, Agaléga and St. Brandon.

Everbridge has been deployed across all government and law enforcement agencies, including the National Police, Military, Fire & Rescue Services, National Coast Guard and Meteorological Services, to immediately inform the public in the event of an emergency.

“The Everbridge public warning system allows us to turn around critical information very quickly,” explained Inspector Hemraj Kumar Mohit of NDRRMC. “Within minutes, we can reach large portions of the population leveraging a system with proven scale.”

Situated in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius remains prone to severe weather hazards such as cyclones, tsunamis, storm surges, landslides and coastal flooding as well as oil spills, HAZMAT incidents and sugarcane fires.

“We are honored to support the Republic of Mauritius on the evolution of its national warning system,” said Stefica Divkovic, Senior Vice President, EMEA, Everbridge.

“Our Public Warning solution enables government organisations to immediately connect with people in an affected area during a critical event regardless of nationality, residency or mobile device type. Every nation can benefit from a modern alerting platform that reaches all citizens in times of crisis.”

This is the second major announcement recently made by the company, having supported the UK government’s public emergency alerting system launch.
