Our Story

SAFER Systems began with a brilliant idea from a refinery engineer. Seeing a demonstration of environmental plume modeling, he immediately sensed its application for the chemical industry. In 1981, SAFER released its first emergency response modeling system — developed on a WICAT 150WS computer with a screaming 8 MHz processor, 256k of memory and a 10 megabyte drive. The owners found a Slipstream motorhome and drove the entire Gulf Coast demonstrating the SAFER system. They christened the camper MERV for Mobile Emergency Response Vehicle. In 1982, the first commercial SAFER System was installed in a chloralkalai plant in Houston, Texas. After a pesticide plant exploded in Bhopal, India, in December 1984, killing an estimated 15,000 people, SAFER’s unique software received international attention.
