Everbridge,
Inc.
(NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management
and enterprise safety software applications to help keep people safe and
businesses running, today announced that the Boston Athletic Association
(BAA) has significantly expanded the role of Everbridge’s Critical
Event Management
(CEM) platform to communicate critical event
updates and safety information to all of its volunteers during the 123rd
running of the Boston Marathon, taking place Monday, April 15th.
This year, the BAA will use Everbridge to provide real-time
notifications to its network of nearly 10,000 volunteers preceding the
event and during race-day events including start times, route updates or
disruptions, and race completion. Additionally, medical tent personnel
from local hospitals and the Boston Public Health Commission will be
notified of health emergencies via Everbridge-powered text messages.

“Everbridge provides us with an important tool in the event of a
situation that requires immediate and effective communications,” said
Chris Troyanos, ATC – Medical Coordinator for the Boston Athletic
Association. “We were so impressed with the results of last year’s
communications strategy that we’ve expanded our partnership with
Everbridge to keep all volunteers safe and informed throughout race day.”

In addition to providing the critical event management platform,
Everbridge staff will be stationed within the BAA’s Race Operations
Center to assist as needed during the event. The Massachusetts Emergency
Management Agency (MEMA) will also leverage Everbridge to facilitate
communications between internal staff members along the 26.2-mile
marathon route that starts in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, and ends in
downtown Boston.

“As a Boston-based company, the Marathon has always been a significant
annual event for our organization and employees,” said Jaime Ellertson,
CEO of Everbridge. “We are extremely proud to serve the Boston Athletic
Association once again, as well as the Massachusetts Emergency
Management Agency and other local entities throughout the city to ensure
a safe environment for this year’s Marathon.”

The Everbridge network of emergency management customers also includes
the Boston Police Department, Boston Public Health Commission and the
Boston Fire Department. The company’s CEM platform facilitates internal
communications so these organizations can effectively manage the
millions of people that will be present in downtown Boston and, if
necessary, respond quickly to any disruptive events.
