(PRWEB) December 30, 2013
VizSAFE, Inc. today announced the creation of a new channel, “2014 SAFE NYE” to enhance the safety of New Year’s Eve celebrations. VizSAFE was developed to enhance community safety and awareness by enabling the public to share photos and videos from their smartphones in real-time with emergency responders, public safety organizations and other concerned citizens. The public is invited to download the free VizSAFE app to their mobile devices and support their communities by sharing visual safety content to make New Year’s Eve safer.
As recent events have demonstrated, citizens with smartphones have captured incident photos and videos that have proven valuable to community safety. VizSAFE efficiently streamlines, organizes and delivers this content instantly to organizations responsible for public safety. The mobile app and web platform are designed to help engaged citizens participate in event safety through crowdsourcing and sharing of visual safety content in real-time, turning every attendee at the New Year’s Eve Celebration into an active node on a global safety network at http://vizsafe.com/NYE2014.
The app and website are free for users to:
- Capture and post photos & videos with descriptions
- Upload previously captured media from the camera roll
- Geolocate and map their media for others to see through the app or website
- Receive notifications from family, friends and neighbors when new reports are posted
- Subscribe to channels (categories) of interest to receive real-time alerts
- Share posts or other user’s posts through their Twitter or Facebook accounts
The public is reminded to use extra caution during the New Year’s Eve celebration. VizSAFE wishes you a very happy, and safe, New Year.
