MEMA Selects OnPage Secure Priority Messaging for Mitigating Disasters(October 02, 2012)
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
MEMA, the state agency with primary responsibility for ensuring the state's resilience to disasters added OnPage to its communication channels. MEMA provides the Commonwealth of Massachusetts valuable leadership during emergencies by coordinating with local, state and Federal governments to ensure a cohesive response. The Operations Division of MEMA maintains and operates the state Emergency Operations Center (EOC), monitoring emergencies statewide through the Communications Unit 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and serves as the command and control center for the Commonwealth.
OnPages priority messaging with its security features, traceability, and ability to communicate with different types of devices will enable MEMAs Staff to reliably communicate and share information during emergencies. OnPage integrates with MEMAs existing dispatch and provides a complete audit trail of all messages, including when they were received and when they were actually viewed.
When disaster strikes, effective communication among the many responders is absolutely crucial, says Judit Sharon, CEO of Onset Technology. Severe consequences can often be traced to communication breakdowns among responders. We are honored that MEMA has put their trust in OnPage for their critical communication needs.
OnPage integrates with any iPhone, BlackBerry, or Android device to provide the user with a quick and reliable communication system. OnPage, with its rapid send/receive time will be able to save MEMA valuable time when dealing with response operations . OnPage also provides the benefits of encryption, time stamped audit trails, and continuous alerts which guarantee that no message will be missed, while at the same time keeping the sender continuously informed as to the status of the message.
