Everbridge Adds Major Higher Education Institution to Growing Cluster
of Customers within the Southern California Region

Everbridge,
Inc.
(NASDAQ:EVBG), a global software company that provides
critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help
keep people safe and businesses running, today announced that the
University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) will be using Everbridge's
Critical Event Management platform to help keep students, staff and
faculty safe and informed during crisis situations.

Campuses nationwide are unfortunately seeing an influx in violence.
According to the Violent Victimization of College Students report,
students report about 526,000
violent crimes each year
, 128,000 of those which "involved a weapon
or serious injury to the victim." Further complicating the issue is the
fact that UCLA's campus has thousands of people – including parents,
campus visitors and sports fans – on the grounds at any given time,
which can make it difficult to communicate effectively. Everbridge's Critical
Event Management platform
enables campus officials to keep the
campus community informed and able to react quickly to a dynamic
situation such as a school lockdown, criminal threat or severe weather.

"Everbridge makes sending alerts to individuals faster and more
efficient while simultaneously activating on premise alerting hardware
with the same message," said Art Kirkland, Director, Office of Emergency
Management, UCLA. "Everbridge's proven platform is a crucial piece of
our security strategy aimed at ensuring the safety of our students,
faculty, staff and visitors at all times."

Everbridge serves numerous educational institutions including major
universities such as California Institute of Technology, University of
Maryland College-Park and University of Oregon. In addition, the company
often serves state and local governments, hospitals, and transit hubs in
the same area as the schools, facilitating coordination in response to
major events. For example, within the southern California region,
Everbridge serves Orange County, Ventura County, Los Angeles County EMS,
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD), Los Angeles Police
Department (LAPD), Los Angeles World Airports (Los Angeles International
Airport – LAX), as well as leading healthcare organizations such as
Molina Healthcare and PIH Health.

"Campus safety professionals have an increasingly complex and difficult
job to do and we are committed to supporting their efforts," said Jaime
Ellertson, CEO of Everbridge. "UCLA has taken an important step in
giving students, staff, faculty and even parents piece of mind that they
will be safe even though they may be far from home."
