Luxembourg selects Intersec for its new Public Warning System

PARIS, Dec. 5, 2022 /CNW/ -- The Government of Luxembourg has selected Intersec to roll out its new national public warning system. This will enable Luxembourg authorities to send alerts and have access to crisis management tools in the event of an emergency that may affect public safety. 

Previously, alerts were sent through GouvAlert.lu and a zonal SMS system. Since Intersec's solution relies on mobile  network operators and combines cell broadcast with  location-based SMS, it reaches almost the entire population and can target people passing through a defined area. Government departments and agencies will be able to send contextualized alerts on the mobile phones of all those concerned, whether they are in or near the danger zone.

The Intersec system integrates a multitude of other communication channels, including a new mobile app, websites, and social networks, along with advanced crisis management features. Luxembourg authorities will therefore be able to notify those concerned about the situation's development in real time, provide them with safety instructions throughout the incident, improve inter-agency communications, and better coordinate field operations. 

Several European governments and mobile service providers have already selected Intersec's public warning system, which now covers 30% of the EU's total population.
