SAFER Mobile Response Release
SAFER Systems®, the world’s leading chemical emergency response solutions provider, is proud to announce the debut of SAFER Mobile Response™. SAFER Mobile Response (SMR) is a smartphone and tablet supported application that integrates the trusted 2016 Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG2016) with the power of Google Maps™, Google Traffic™, and live weather updates and forecasting. The application puts crucial data at the fingertips of first responders and emergency services personnel when called to the scene of a chemical incident. The app is now available for free via iTunes or the Google Play store.
“First responders the world over recognize the North America Emergency Response Guide as a trusted source for initial protective information and response guidance,” said SAFER Systems President, Allen Edmond. “We’ve taken that static, printed information and brought it to life in the more easily accessible environment of smartphones and tablets. SAFER Mobile Response converts the ERG protective distance charts into visual hazard zones and identifies key points of concern at risk using Google Maps™ and Google Points of Interest.”
“The app takes the widely accepted ERG hazard zone guidance to the next level with real-time weather and traffic data. It will help responders plan their way to the incident scene and identify key municipal amenities at risk,” said SAFER System Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, Bob Gerow. “SAFER Mobile Response ensures the guide’s crucial information is available, anywhere, anytime.”
SAFER Mobile ResponseTM is just one of the ways SAFER Systems continues to lead in the preparation for and mitigation of hazardous events. For decades, the company has been one of the most trusted names in chemical facility emergency management with a growing client list that is a who’s-who of the chemical industry and response agencies.
