"Our evacuation platform has been utilized during some of California’s most difficult, dangerous, and life-threatening incidents over the last three years," said Richard Danforth, Chief Executive Officer, Genasys, Inc. “Zonehaven has quickly become a standard for evacuation management in the Golden State, having been used this year in more than 50 incidents ranging from wildfires and flooding to police actions and advisories.
"First responders, emergency management personnel, and more than 400,000 residents in Calaveras, Del Norte, Madera, and Shasta counties will now have access to Zonehaven evacuation resources under these contracts,” continued Mr. Danforth. "Del Norte and Shasta join seven other heavily forested northern California counties covered by our software services that reduce evacuation time from hours to minutes."
Mr. Danforth added, “These contracts advance our SaaS strategy and further expand our footprint in California. Our strategic investments to capture market share and improve profitability are gaining traction. Additional SaaS and hardware contracts are expected this year from other jurisdictions as we continue to expand our critical communications coverage throughout California and in other states."
