Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 1, 2010
Miami based company creates the first free full network for First Responders sponsored by private sector advertisers. HS Network expected to reach 3 million First Responders by 2011.
"We are proud to sign an agreement with Emergency Film Group. This will contribute to our network’s utility to the Homeland Security community by providing more excellent services that only private industry can provide in a comprehensive and secure platform that handles sensitive but unclassified materials.” states Henry Morgenstern, CEO of the HS Network. “We expect it to operate more efficiently than the Homeland Security Information Network much as private carriers like FedEx and UPS have replaced the US Post Office.”
The Homeland Security Network was established by private investor groups to provide the nation’s first backbone of information for Homeland Security First Responders. The network will provide free, on-demand training as well as pay per play training in everything from Fire safety and Gun Safety for Children, straight through to advanced tactical training for SWAT teams seeking to become more familiar with terrorist incidents. The network will provide secure delivery to agencies and give them the real-time ability to upload information, review video content in a YouTube like format, get critical news based on new feed technologies and even receive special reports and documents under one comprehensive portal. In addition, the company will provide other private entities Open Source Intelligence reports. “We are filling a gap which the US Government has been unable to provide in terms of providing up-to-date intelligence from Open Sources. Jurisdictions with fire, law enforcement, medical and emergency response will now have access. In addition, the network will be peer to peer in the information sharing sense. There will be no case in which information flows up to an agency and then disappears. The increased sharing provides power to the people concerned with protecting us all.”
Private vendors to the Homeland Security industry from makers of sophisticated platforms like robots and detection equipment or biometrics to manufacturers of simple high tech barrier devices will use the network not only to advertise their products but to provide instantly updateable product training which cannot be posted on conventional web sites. HS Network will produce the content utilizing advanced learning techniques and technologies. It is expected that First Responders in the field will be able to download instructions on any product to their handhelds, pda’s and cell phones.
The network is being operated by Security Solutions International of Miami, Florida contributing its experience with training more than 800 Government agencies over the last decade.
