Greenville, NC (PRWEB) November 25, 2014
BeSafe Technologies, Inc. is pleased to announce that it's COO, Kevin J. Harrington, presented its state of the art emergency management software to the Eastern Regional Advisory Committee (ERAC) meeting in Greenville, North Carolina. The Eastern Regional Advisory Committee (ERAC) is composed of representatives from the 29 county referral region of Pitt County Memorial Hospital's Level I Trauma Center. The representatives fall into several categories: prehospital providers; physicians, nurses, and administrators from the regional hospitals; and community volunteers. The major focus of ERAC is to implement and coordinate a regional trauma system and thereby improve trauma care in eastern North Carolina. The audience, consisting of doctors, medical practitioners, nurses, emergency medical technicians, and first responders heard Harrington talk about BeSafe's flagship service on mapping hospitals and sharing data and information with first responders in real time. The November 14th event at the Heart Institute at East Carolina University provided the attendees the opportunity to hear about emerging trends in hospital security from BeSafe's COO.
About BeSafe Technologies
BeSafe Technologies provides first responders with advanced information about a facility's physical layout, surroundings and access points before arriving at a location, thus enabling responders to expedite their intervention. This includes aerial imagery and digital photographs of all facades, entrances and egresses, the location and description of hazardous materials and critical utility shut-offs. This allows first responders to know the exterior surroundings of the property, access routes, and a view of all entrance and escape points, as well as asset identification, enabling pre-planning of evacuation and response. The information is distributed electronically to emergency response agencies and is accessible from most police and other emergency vehicles. BeSafe's systems are currently implemented in approximately 2,500 end user sites, including over 150 school districts and colleges across 10 states, and numerous hospitals, law enforcement agencies and municipal facilities.
