First Responders on FirstNet Can Now Access CrisisGo via the FirstNet App Catalog
ST. LOUIS, Mo. –Following a rigorous review process, the CrisisGo app from CrisisGo Inc. is now FirstNet Listed and available via the FirstNet App Catalog.
FirstNet – America’s public safety communications platform – features the first-ever App Catalog geared to first responders. This gives FirstNet subscribers a dedicated location to find meaningful new solutions that have been specifically reviewed for use with FirstNet services. Before any mobile solution can be added to the FirstNet App Catalog, it must pass stringent tests for security, relevancy, data privacy and more.
Achieving a FirstNet Listed designation means the CrisisGo app is a vetted and trusted solution for public safety, meeting FirstNet app requirements. Additionally, FirstNet subscribers will also be able to take advantage of the CrisisGo digital safety and crisis response platform while benefitting from the enhanced security provided by the FirstNet network core, which is the only physically separate network core dedicated entirely to public safety in America.
“We are both proud and excited to be working with FirstNet to make public safety stronger and safer and allow Primary FirstNet users to communicate with FirstNet Extended Primary school or safety responders,” said Chris Vuillaume, General Manager for CrisisGo Inc. “For example, during major incidents in schools – such as a fire, severe weather or active shooting event – First Responders can engage in multi-media communication with school safety team members and staff, all organized by roles and responsibilities for better accountability.”
CrisisGo is an incident management platform that coordinates alerts, messages and notifications through communication and IoT devices across first responders, safety and security teams, organization stakeholders and their communities. CrisisGo helps prevent and prepare for critical situations that can impact anyone, anywhere. The reliable, trusted platform helps first responders and safety personnel rapidly respond to incidents, notify people in real-time based on their response protocol-defined role, and facilitate recovery faster.
Being built with AT&T, in public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority, FirstNet is bringing public safety a much-needed technology upgrade to help them connect to the critical information they need – every day and in every emergency.
“Only highly secure, high quality, public safety relevant applications are added to the FirstNet App Catalog. And we’re pleased that CrisisGo is now Listed and available to FirstNet subscribers,” said Bob Sloan, chief operating officer, FirstNet Program at AT&T. “CrisisGo will bring public safety additional capabilities to more quickly respond and communicate throughout a crisis situation.”
“The FirstNet App Catalog is growing with public safety’s needs in mind. Through our work with first responders, we heard their need for innovative applications to help them easily share information for efficient response to incidents. We are pleased to welcome CrisisGo to the FirstNet App Catalog,” said Mark Golaszewski, executive director of Technology and Innovation, First Responder Network Authority.
