Huntsville, Alabama, April 5, 2016 – Pure Force and Rescue Corporation has deployed a nationwide emergency call app and coordinated emergency dispatching system, built upon Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure software, across 30 cities in Philippines. The technologies help police, fire and rescue and emergency medical services agencies decrease response times and more effectively manage incidents and emergencies.
The Metro Manila Development Authority, the Philippine National Police and the Bureau of Fire Protection are among the leading agencies that have implemented the solution in partnership with Pure Force, a private initiative formed to support public safety in Philippines.
“The Hexagon software used by Pure Force will decrease and mitigate crime in the city of Manila,” said Manila Vice Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso. “Our citizens will sleep soundly during the night because things are being done.”
With Hexagon’s industry-leading incident management software, Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD), Pure Force’s command center benefits from a common operating picture that facilitates the sharing of critical information among agencies and in different cities across the country. Intergraph Mobile Responder, an app for smartphones and tablets, extends incident management capabilities to first responders in the field, providing access to real-time data, which improves situational awareness. In addition, members of the public can now call for help from a single emergency number or from Pure Force’s citizen mobile app irrespective of the city in which they are located.
In addition to Manila, the nation’s capital, Pure Force has also deployed the Hexagon solutions in Aklan, Butuan, Cebu city, Cebu Bogo, Cebu Consolacion, Cebu Mandaue, Caloocan, Davao, Las Piñas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Parañaque, Pasay, Pasig, Pateros, Quezon city, Rodriguez Rizal, San Mateo Rizal, San Jose del Monte, San Juan, Taguig and Valenzuela.
Specializing in search and rescue operations, Pure Force is in the process of donating the mission-critical Hexagon software to every city and plans on leveraging more of Hexagon’s suite of solutions to expand its coverage nationwide. In 2015, Pure Force was presented with Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s Icon Award, the highest customer award, for its use of innovation to better serve its citizens and communities.
