When a 7.7 magnitude earthquake hit Chile last week, the population was kept out of harm’s way thanks to a new Israeli startup.

When a powerful earthquake shook southern Chile [last] Sunday, the potential for loss of life and damage was great. But thanks to eVigilo‘s mass alert system, there were no immediate reports of deaths in the wake of the 7.7 magnitude quake.

eVigilo — an Israeli startup delivering and developing emergency mass-notification, multi-channel solutions for governments, municipalities and businesses – was used to notify some 4,000 Chileans living near Chiloe Island, where the earthquake struck, to evacuate.

eVigilo SMART Broadcast delivers geo-targeted cell broadcast messages within seconds to millions of people. It is the only cell broadcast system worldwide that warns millions of people in less than 20 seconds in case of earthquakes, Tsunamis and other imminent threats.
