Everbridge (formerly known as 3n Global and the National Notification Network) is a global provider of SaaS-based critical communications and enterprise safety solutions. It began operations in 2002.[1] In an emergency, Everbridge sends messages via telephone, text message and email,[1] but stop once they know that a person has read a message.[2] An app allows emergency managers to track geotagged tweets that contain specific hashtags and use this information to respond to incidents as they occur.[1]

Their system was used in 2012 to send over 10 million messages to residents during Hurricane Sandy.[1][2] During the Boston Marathon bombings in April 2013, the city of Boston used Everbridge for its critical communications.[3] Everbridge relayed information to business operators, employees, firefighters, hospital staff, police and residents after the explosions and during the lockdown of Boston, Watertown, Waltham and surrounding areas.[4]
