Ping4alerts! is an emergency communications platform that allows public safety agencies to send high precision, location based emergency alerts to people in their community. The system leverages the location-based services of today’s smartphones and tablets to send multimedia alerts and messages to users based on their location and categories of information they opt in to receive. Ping4alerts! is the only emergency communications system in the world that allows you to control your alert area down to the foot – with ping4alerts!, you can set an alert area right up to the boundary of a beach, road, building, or any other area, eliminating alert fatigue and making sure people are only getting information about events that may affect them.
There are two components to the ping4alerts! solution:
Sender: a public safety agency or organization with a ping4alerts! license and Internet connectivity.
Receiver: anyone with the free ping4alerts! app on an iPhone, iPad or Android mobile device with cellular, WiFi and/or GPS connectivity.
After downloading the free app and accepting its terms and conditions, the receiver need only turn on their mobile device’s location services to receive safety alerts anywhere in the world.
When the end-user’s mobile device enters or exits a geofence, the device instantly receives any relevant push notifications.
This powerful mobile communications platform works without any personal information from end users.
