Barnstable, Massachusetts (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
BeSafe Technologies Inc. was recently awarded the 2013 "Best Facility Security/Emergency Response Software" by Government Security News (GSN). This award recognizes BeSafe Technologies’ primary product BeSafe®, which provides critical building information and site information instantly, easily and securely to first responders.
According to GSN, winners of this year's Homeland Security Awards program were selected from hundreds of nominations submitted by leading IT and physical security vendors as well as agencies at all levels of government.
"BeSafe Technologies, Inc. is proud to be recognized with other IT security winners," said Chief Executive Officer Tom McDonald. "We are humbled with the GSN Award recognition and honored to be among the many fine and outstanding companies and agencies working to protect our national security."
As one of the judges of the 2013 IT Security awards, Chuck Brooks commented “the BeSafe® system clearly demonstrated the critical need to integrate technology, data, and people into one comprehensive solution that will help make our country safer. This solution was seamless, simple, and may potentially save the lives of both first responder and those that are in harms way.”
BeSafe® provides first responders with access to critical information even before they arrive onsite, such as detailed floor plan, locations and identification of hazardous materials, utility shutoffs, emergency contact data, staging areas, alternate approaches if primary routes are blocked and more. BeSafe provides all of the critical information to first responders through its secure on-line portal giving first responders an on-demand, detailed understanding of buildings by simply logging on to a web browser.
“I have been Chief of Police in two accredited communities as well as a 55 city/town regional SWAT Commander and implemented the BeSafe system into our schools, hospitals, and municipal and community buildings. The BeSafe system has given police and fire personnel an invaluable resource in the areas of preparation and response. Our officers are better prepared and equipped having BeSafe in place.” Richard Stanley, Police Chief, Retired
