On February 17, 2015, Ormond Beach-based Emergency Communications Network (ECN) hosted Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) and his District Representative, Andrew Meiner. During the visit, the Congressman and Meiner were introduced to ECN’s executive team and were led on a tour through ECN’s new corporate headquarters located at 780 W. Granada Boulevard in Ormond Beach.
The Congressman viewed a live demonstration of ECN’s CodeRED emergency and mass notification software, designed for public safety officials to quickly notify residents and staff of emergencies or routine matters. A test telephone call, text message, email and CodeRED Mobile Alert app message were created specifically for the Congressman’s visit and sent internally to ECN staff. The demonstration showed Rep. DeSantis the speed and power of CodeRED technology, which was developed and is maintained out of ECN’s local office in Ormond Beach. To date, more than 3,000 public safety organizations across North America rely on ECN technology to save lives.
Rep. DeSantis also had the opportunity to speak with several ECN staff members, including those in newly created positions. ECN’s rapid growth is a direct result from the support of private equity. ECN currently employs more than 100 full-time employees and is currently seeking to expand its staff of client support personnel and software developers. ECN is also seeking interns for the summer semester in the areas of software development, IT and marketing.
