UPSEN Applications

UPSEN Applications
UPSEN leverages cell broadcasting technology, providing a standardized and location-based service for delivering critical emergency alerts and information to the public. This comprehensive implementation plan outlines the key aspects involved in deploying UPSEN within a new country.

Benefits of Cell Broadcasting

UPSEN, powered by cell broadcasting technology, boasts a wide array of practical applications across various critical scenarios, enhancing the capabilities of emergency response and public safety:
Emergency Alerts:
UPSEN is a versatile platform for disseminating emergency alerts, providing a rapid and efficient means of notifying the public about imminent threats or hazardous events. These alerts can encompass natural disasters, public safety issues, security threats, and other time-sensitive information.
Public Safety Messages:
The system extends its utility to broadcasting public safety messages, offering guidance, instructions, and important updates to the public. This can include information about shelter locations, evacuation routes, or actions to take during specific situations, such as severe weather conditions.
Evacuation Notices:
UPSEN excels in delivering evacuation notices to residents in high-risk areas. During emergencies like wildfires, floods, or industrial incidents, timely evacuation notices are essential for ensuring public safety. UPSEN’s geo-targeted notifications enable precise targeting of affected areas, improving response coordination and minimizing confusion.
Vital Information:
In addition to emergency alerts and evacuation notices, UPSEN serves as a platform for disseminating vital information. This can include updates on the status of a crisis, instructions on protective measures, and essential communications during health emergencies or civil disturbances.
This functionality allows for the precise targeting of specific geographic areas or regions. By delivering alerts and information only to those within the affected zones, UPSEN maximizes the relevance and impact of the messages. This level of precision enhances public safety by reducing unnecessary alarm among those who are not directly affected.

Global Alerts and Government Framework

Global Alerts works with all levels of governments and all mobile carriers to build the platform to ensure the delivery of safety alerts for its citizens. This platform can be established to focus in on missing persons with the police using Amber Alerts or as an early weather warning system in the case of life threatening tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes and flood events. UPSEN is the only Global Emergency Management Cell Broadcast system designed to address regional mass messaging regardless of human defined borders.

The world is united in identifying threats to
our society and communities.

What are Global Agencies saying

Today, I announce the United Nations will spearhead new action to ensure every person on Earth is protected by early warning systems within five years. I have asked the World Meteorological Organization to lead this effort and to present an action plan at the next UN climate conference, later this year in Egypt.
