Everbridge announced that the Toronto Zoo has selected its mass notification system to help safeguard its more than 1,000 permanent, part-time, seasonal, and volunteer staff, as well as to be available to alert the zoo’s approximately 1.3 million guests per year.

The zoo is home to roughly 3,000 animals, representing over 280 different species, spanning 500 acres surrounded by Rouge National Urban Park. The zoo has five indoor pavilions (African Rainforest, Americas, Australasia, Malayan Woods and IndoMalaya) and several other indoor venues, such as the newly renovated Greenhouse and Wildlife Health Centre, which includes an animal hospital and reproductive lab, and the administration and service buildings.

Everbridge’s mass notification system broadcasts critical information and alerts across multi-channel communications including SMS, email, desktop alerts, and voice, according to the company.

“Guest and employee safety remains paramount at the Toronto Zoo, and Everbridge offers the sophisticated solutions we need to help us protect our staff, visitors, and zoo community, while rapidly communicating vital information during an emergency,” said Dolf DeJong, CEO, Toronto Zoo, in a statement. “We strive to create an easily accessible, fun, safe and comfortable experience that encourages learning and creates iconic and lifelong memories.”


Over 6,500 global organizations use Everbridge solutions, says the company.
