Rave Mobile Safety has announced that it has been selected by Atos Public Safety as the platform for its Next Generation 911 (NG911) alert and warning system for California, USA.
Rave has been selected due to its understanding of operating across California’s complex needs of managing different populations and diversities, meaning they will be protecting around 39 million residents.
Expanding current capabilities
Rave’s highly flexible and configurable system will consolidate and expand current capabilities into one state-wide solution. This uniform platform will better meet the stringent feature, reliability and performance requirements for a state with emergency communications needs covering everything from earthquakes, wildfires and tsunamis to civil disturbances and major sporting events.
Atos, the Network Service Provider for the State’s NG911 infrastructure project, will manage the overall program. In addition to providing critical emergency alert notifications to residents and first responders, Rave will also serve as the platform for initiating the state’s Integrated Public Alert & Warning System (IPAWS) communications.
Mass notification system
“We are proud to partner with Atos to help protect the most populous state in the nation and address the unique challenge of ensuring all residents are safe and informed, despite being spread across nearly 200,000 square miles with regions being impacted by entirely different events,” said Todd Piett, Rave CEO.
“To do this successfully, officials need a reliable, best-in-class system that can be used anywhere, at any time with complete confidence. Rave is proud to deliver that consistency and flexibility to the state of California as it seeks to better protect and inform its residents and visitors.” Rave’s alerting platform is the mass notification system enabling governments, organisations, higher education institutions and schools to send messages quickly and reliably in just three clicks across multiple modes of communication.
Access control capability
The solution seamlessly integrates with California’s NG911 system, enabling agencies to ensure phone numbers and GIS data sets are synchronised. With the platform’s role-based access control capability, emergency managers can access neighboring agencies’ systems for back-up and redundancy, ensuring seamless communication and reliability in the most stressful of circumstances.
Usability and system access are further enhanced through Rave’s partnership with RapidDeploy, which provides 9-1-1 dispatchers and supervisors integrated access to Rave Alert through RapidDeploy’s cloud-based RadiusPlus mapping system deploying across the state.
