Emergency Alerting for Public Safety – Top 10 needs – #2 – mobile users

A key priority for public safety is how to deal with all the transient users on mobile devices whose contact information is not known a priori. At an airport where thousands arrive and fly out, at a sporting event where tens of thousands watch the game, at a campus where people visit on laptops and mobile phones, at a hospital where people come and go, at a shopping center where people pass through, etc. etc. One of the key areas mass notification solutions have ignored is WiFi. Users carry devices enabled by WiFi and somehow all emergency alerts need to reach them without delivering spam. A challenge indeed – but doable as demonstrated by the Amika Mobile platform.  …Dr. Sue Abu-Hakima, CEO Amika Mobile
