As an ActiveAlert user, you can gain helpful insight into your agency’s alerts through the ‘Reporting’ tab in the online console. In this tab, you can access four different reports. These reports were designed to give captains, chiefs, and other members the ability to see how their department is being utilized. The four reports included are: Alert Type Breakdown, Busiest Addresses, Busiest Hours, and Busiest Users.
If you are an admin, when you login to the website, you will see the calendar view. This is where you can create repeating and non-repeating schedules. You can customize what station each schedule applies to, the reporting status, start date, times, and shift patterns. You can also use one of our pre-made rotations, such as a 24-on/48-off or make your own from scratch.
Today, we announced the rebranding of our flagship alerting product to ActiveAlert. Formerly known as “Active911,” “Active911 App,” and “Active911 Alerting,” rebranding the product to ActiveAlert allows the name Active911 to remain synonymous with the parent company of our first responder software solutions and not the individual alerting and emergency response coordination app. ActiveAlert is a change in name only and clients will not see a change in the function and features of the software or app.
With Active911’s alerting app, you are able to change your mapping settings so that you can see how far an incident is if traveling by aircraft. Rather than turn-by-turn navigation, you will get direct point-to-point distance. This is an extremely helpful tool for any agency that has Life Flight, air ambulances, tanker planes, or airplanes for search and rescue teams. You can also use this tool for directing other aircrafts such as drones.
Following a rigorous review process, Active911 is now FirstNet Verified and accessible via the FirstNet App Catalog. The Active911 app helps advance multiple agency objectives. We aid first responder movement by helping to reduce response times and increase communication, incident response coordination and operational capability. We also help grow situational awareness and engagement all with your smartphone.
Active911, Inc. is acquiring FFRS, LLC. FFRS is an emergency response software company that offers a mobile solution for alerting, response coordination, and messaging. With features similar to Active911, it was an easy decision to make when FFRS was looking for new ownership. With a growing industry and further demands on technology from the public safety sector, FFRS did not have the resources to grow its software to meet the needs of its audience.
