Everbridge’s dedication to innovation in the area of campus security has garnered several recent industry awards including the “Campus Safety BEST Award” from Campus Safety magazine, as well as the “Platinum Secure Campus Award” from Campus Security and Life Safety magazine.

When deployed, a school can aggregate that location data from multiple sources including building access controls and travel management systems to send notifications to students who might be in danger.
