Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 2, 2009
Today America’s Emergency Network, Inc. announced that it has retained MediaTech Capital Partners LLC, the New York-based merchant bank, as strategic advisor and investment advisor to AEN to assist with the financial and transactional requirements to support AEN’s national rollout. MediaTech’s managing partner, Porter Bibb, announced this new assignment today and called AEN a critical public-service multi-media broadcaster with significant economic development potential. “We are pleased to assist America’s Emergency Network in its effort to expand from the premier hurricane crisis-management broadcaster to a full-fledged public safety and emergency network, streaming video briefings available to anyone with an Internet connection on any kind of public safety issue, whether a natural disaster like hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes or major catastrophes like fires, explosions, or other disasters, including Homeland Security situations.”
Bryan Norcross, founder and CEO of America’s Emergency Network, added, “we are very pleased that MediaTech Capital Partners has recognized not only the necessity, but the considerable financial opportunities, AEN can generate by building from its Florida base to a national footprint. This new relationship is another major step in AEN’s development and will provide the public with an easily accessible, readily available, real-time source of information on any emergency—weather events, transportation, major accidents, health emergencies, and outbreaks of violence.”
AEN was created by Norcross and Max Mayfield, former director of the National Hurricane Center, to provide a national disaster-warning system and facilitate the transmission of real time emergency information.
