Connect Emergency Response Teams With Key Building Personnel

Who Is 911INFORM

911inform is the only all-encompassing platform to help emergency response teams better manage communication and connected-building controls directly related to an emergency. Our solution provides emergency notifications to dispatch, first responders and key building personnel seconds after a 911 emergency phone call is placed within a 911inform geofenced building location. Our software is activated, through PBX phone or smartphone, and provides an emergency notification to all required parties, as well as the exact location (within 3 meters of accuracy) of the emergency event location. We then hand the connected-building controls to dispatch and emergency response teams, allowing them to use the video surveillance feeds, voice control systems and door access capabilities directly related to the emergency, ensuring that they can arrive on scene as quickly as possible and be better prepared when they do.

911INFORM Introduction

About 911INFORM

In 2015, the founder of 911inform, Ivo Allen, found inspiration for the company after watching news footage of a recent shooting. Unfortunately, this is an issue that's far too prevalent here in the US, but what really struck Ivo was the fact that many of the victims passed away from the inability of emergency first-response teams to arrive on the scene quickly enough. This was due to a variety of factors, but the core reason was the fact that these first responders didn't have the tools available to them to gain a better grasp of the emergency at hand. They had little to no transparency into the emergency and little to no direct communication with those affected by it. They would often be walking into an emergency totally blind, and in an active shooter situation, this is unacceptable. With new technological advancements in safety and security systems, Ivo knew there was a better way. He went to work on the product and after years of testing, 911inform was formally established in 2018.
