The project will provide collaborative communications in emergency situations. The integrated solution will provide rapid notification services between the chiefs of police in a number of cities across Canada.
“We are excited to work with both CITIG and the CACP and it is an honour for us to help with rapid safety and security communications for them. Our deployment of the AMS will ensure that the Chiefs can be reached quickly and effectively on a number of communications paths, and have the ability to provide rapid response to a wide range of critical or emergency situations that arise,” said Amika Mobile CEO Dr. Sue Abu-Hakima.
“CITIG is excited about leveraging the AMS in emergency situations for CACP, keeping everyone informed in real-time,” remarked Lance Valcour, Executive Director of CITIG. “In today’s world with rapid mobile and social media communications, the AMS is very well suited to provide chiefs with instant contact as needed.”
Amika Mobile is also announcing that Amika Panic for Desktops and Mobile was highly reviewed as an ASIS Accolades product for 2013 and is eligible for an ASIS People’s Choice Award. Amika Panic allows mobile users to issue a panic alert while at work, at home or to simply indicate they are OK in a major disaster situation. It will be available for download off the Android store shortly. The CITIG/CACP project may leverage Amika Panic if needed.
Demonstrations of the AMS and Amika Panic capabilities integrated with physical systems will be shown at both the Ontario Pavilion Booth #283 and at the Command Center at Partner Booth #1405 at ASIS 2013, McCormick Place, September 24 to 26 in Chicago, Illinois.
