Fire Fighters Magazine gathered that a new security alert software application which has been developed to also effectively bridge the gap between emergencies and response has been launched in Nigeria by PrimeAlert.
PrimeAlert’s Chief Operating Officer, Ibok offiong, in Abuja reveal that the emergency alert app, will help provide Nigerians with quick emergence response services within a given environment, Ibok said.
‘’The safety app can also be used in a variety of situations when you may need to ask for help or seek assistance from others and could be useful when involved in an accident, in witnessing a serious health problem, fire outbreak, kidnapping and in unsafe and terrible situations.’’, Ms Offiong said.
Offiong further narrated that the app works by first installing it on your phone and on your dependants, ‘’so when you are distress, feel unsafe or in an emergency situation, the app helps you alert multiple contacts with one simple press of a button’’. The app sends automatic alert thru text message to your dependants who may then contact the security agents. The message alert also includes your GPS position and the time sent.
She said the Artificial Intelligence feature allows the app to detect when involved in a car crash, gun shot, fire accident or other related emergencies and instantly sends rescue alert. ‘’The Artificial Intelligence feature also allows for voice activation. The app recognises pre-stored words or phrases as voice commands. Just repeat the word or phrase during an emergency and the app will instantly send rescue alert’’.
The PrimeAlert app doesn’t require internet data bundle or airtime for MTN and Airtel users. ‘’Other networks are coming soon’’, Offiong said.
