1Call’s Red Alert to Include Mapping Capabilities

The 1Call Division of Amtelco announced that its Red Alert Emergency and Event Notification system now features industry-standard ESRI® and Google™ mapping capabilities, significantly enhancing the ability to quickly trigger alerts for specific geographic areas.  The enhanced mapping capabilities make Red Alert the ideal system for triggering alerts for community disasters, biohazards, evacuations, or severe weather conditions.

Alerts can be issued for campus locations, neighborhoods, cities, entire counties, or one or more states or provinces.  To define an area, the alert issuer simply draws a box, a circle, clicks to create a polygon shape, or enters a radius and clicks on the map.  Red Alert shows a list of responders in that area for review.  Red Alert issues alerts by phone, mobile phone, SMS, email, pager, or fax.

In addition to mapping, other recent Red Alert additions include:

  • HL7 interface
  • Expanded multilingual capabilities
  • Interactive real-time monitor
  • Survey capabilities
  • Improved administrative security
  • Custom group and fields
  • Expanded reporting
