Hampton Road MMRS Once Again Chooses Intelligent Notification Standard as Critical Emergency Response Tool
Unique platform replaces inefficient phone-tree system, saving time and money
SAN DIEGO (June 17, 2014)—MIR3, Inc., the innovator of real-time Intelligent Notification (IN™) and response technology, today announced that Hampton Road Metropolitan Medical Response System (HRMMRS), a U.S. Department of Homeland Security Grant Program, has renewed their commitment to using Intelligent Notification Standard™ edition as a tool to alert and organize emergency responders.
HRMMRS has used Intelligent Notification Standard since 2006 to alert emergency responders in the case of a mass casualty incident, augmenting existing local operational response systems. The ability to send an emergency notification to dispersed responders on a variety of communication devices is important to HRMMRS as its territory is broad, including the cities of Chesapeake, Franklin, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Poquoson, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach and Williamsburg as well as the counties of Gloucester, Isle of Wight, James City, Southampton, Surry and York.
“HRMMRS has chosen the most reliable notification solution on the market,” says Ann Pickren, COO for MIR3. “In the kinds of emergencies they deal with, they must be able to quickly determine who needs to know what, and the message must be adapted as contacts respond. That’s what Intelligent Notification was built for.”
Intelligent Notification Standard edition is ideal for companies that need a full-featured yet streamlined notification system with sophisticated data management. When business continuity is compromised or emergencies threaten, the Standard edition provides automatic notification that can be targeted to the people most likely to help, taking into consideration their personal schedules and actual locations.
MIR3, Inc. is the leading developer of Intelligent Notification and response software, which helps organizations and companies enhance communication, protect assets, and increase operational efficiency. MIR3 technology provides a common communication platform that enables advanced rapid, two-way communication for IT, business continuity, and enterprise operations for many of the Global Fortune 100 companies, as well as government entities, universities and companies of all sizes in more than 130 countries.
