WINDSOR, U.K.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everbridge, the leading provider of assured critical communication solutions, today announced that SAGAT, the Turin Airport operator, will use Everbridge to help manage airport emergency procedures for the safety and security of their customers and staff.

The Everbridge system will be used to reduce the time for airport operational safety procedures to be put into action and support improvements in the emergency notification process to all staff, organisations, and agencies involved in rescue operations.
