SAFER Systems Offers Free Chemical Emergency Response App
The Camarillo, Calif.-based company has released SAFER Mobile Response, a smartphone and tablet-supported app.
SAFER Systems of Camarillo, Calif., is offering SAFER Mobile Response™, a smartphone and tablet-supported app that integrates the 2012 Emergency Response Guidebook with the power of Google Maps™, Google Traffic™, and live weather updates and forecasting.
All of this information is available to first responders and emergency services personnel when they're called to the scene of a hazmat spill or incident. The app is free via iTunes or the Google Play store.
"First responders the world over recognize the ERG2012 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 Places."
"The app takes the widely accepted ERG2012 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, any time."
