Rave Mobile Safety Announces Major Enhancements to Its SmartPrepare(TM) Emergency Management Platform

Rave Mobile Safety announced major enhancements to its SmartPrepare(TM) emergency management platform. Particular highlights include the integration of award-winning emergency notification capabilities for targeted multi-modal communications with communities, as well as powerful tools for managing data on vulnerable populations. Available immediately, SmartPrepare sets a new industry standard in whole community preparedness, enabling those in emergency management to better prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters, emergencies and severe weather. SmartPrepare automates and simplifies the collection and management of information voluntarily contributed by citizens. Through free and secure online Safety Profiles, citizens share whatever details they wish about themselves and their families such as: individual descriptions and photographs, emergency contact information, medical histories, medical dependencies on electricity, mobility limitations and much more. It is particularly useful for those with access, functional and complex medical needs who could require assistance during an emergency situation. This critical information is then used by emergency management for precise planning, and to expedite response and recovery efforts during events. Once in the system, individuals are automatically prompted to update their Safety Profiles semi-annually, ensuring information remains current and accurate. With SmartPrepare, emergency managers can easily collect and manage information about at-risk populations and all citizens in their community. They can quickly view and manipulate information based on geography, risk factors, access and functional needs, or any other relevant data-point. During emergency situations, they can communicate with an entire population, selected subsets, and even individuals -- all from a single, unified console. SmartPrepare can also incorporate and integrate with existing data sources such as white pages, geo-coded Automatic Location Information (ALI) and other directories. Through a variety of easy-to-use interactive query and geo-selection tools, emergency managers can identify and communicate with their community in a variety of ways: Mass Notification: Provides the ability to quickly alert an entire community to threats, from fast-moving wildfires to approaching hurricanes and winter weather to sudden manmade disasters; Geo-targeted Notifications: Interactive maps pinpoint impacted areas, allowing for communicating early warnings and allocation of emergency resources based on accurate data; Individual Targeting: Enables immediate two-way communication with vulnerable populations that have specific access, functional or medical needs. Additional highlights of the new SmartPrepare solution include: Multi-modal Messaging: Ensures maximum communication coverage, including 2-way texting, 2-way voice, Facebook, Twitter, email, multi-language. It is also Integrated Public Alert & Warning System (IPAWS) ready; Always Available: SmartPrepare is cloud-based, takes advantage of Rave's acclaimed public safety grade infrastructure, and can be accessed by mobile devices. Data is always available for emergency planning and resource assessments; Interoperability: Citizen opt-in data from Safety Profiles is stored in a secure national database with standardized structure, facilitating regional and vertical interoperability among those with emergency management responsibilities; Reporting: Provides easy-to-use reporting formats and export options for precise planning, after action review and more, while facilitating communication and collaboration among emergency personnel. SmartPrepare is currently used to bring added protection to communities around the country. The secure Software-as-a-Service solution is quickly deployed and requires no on-site IT resources.
