The New York City Fire Department (FDNY) has selected MIR3's inEnterprise notification system for official emergency notification, the company announced today.
The inEnterprise application is a secure, role-based notification platform that FDNY will use to communicate with emergency workers during crises. The two-way notification system also is used by more than 150 colleges and universities, MIR3 officials said.
The inEnterprise software sends time-sensitive alerts to clients. FDNY's recipients will receive messages from inEnterprise until they respond and confirm receipt, according to the company.
MIR3's platform will be used by FDNY's 15,000 employees, including paramedics, emergency medical technicians and firefighters, and allow recipients to connect to call centers and establish emergency lines.
'With MIR3's technology, we'll have the ability to determine who is available to assist in a situation, get them where they need to be and ensure messages are communicated without fail,' said Salvatore Cassano, chief of department for FDNY.
