PARIS, June 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Intersec announces the successful deployment of its state-of-the-art national public warning system (PWS) in Croatia. This project was carried out in collaboration with a consortium consisting of KING ICT d.o.o., a leading IT company in Croatia, and GDi d.o.o.
Croatian authorities can now rapidly disseminate critical information and advisories to the general public through multiple channels, including SMS alerts, cell broadcast, mobile apps and social media platforms, ultimately saving lives and minimizing the impact of the catastrophes.
Davor Božinović, Minister of the Interior, explained: "This innovative solution will significantly improve our ability to alert and protect the public during emergencies. We can now ensure that the necessary information reaches citizens efficiently, allowing them to respond appropriately."
On Saturday, June 3, the system sent a test location-based SMS alert to all citizens, successfully reaching millions of people across the country. Three days later, cell broadcast alerts were successfully tested in three regions: Ličko-senjsku županiju, Grad Slavonski Brod I and Oćina Stupnik.
Yann Chevalier, CEO of Intersec, commented: "With our partners GDi and KING ICT, we have provided a solid solution that will make Croatia a more resilient society. We are committed to continue working with the Croatian government to strengthen emergency preparedness."
With the successful deployment of the Intersec PWS, Croatia joins the ranks of nations at the forefront of public safety technology, using a combination of location-based Cell Broadcast and SMS. Intersec continues to support Croatia to maximize the potential of the system, continually improving its functionality and expanding its features.
