Boston, MA – Dec 19, 2019 – Following a rigorous review process, the Vizsafe app is now FirstNet® Listed and accessible via the FirstNet App Catalog.
FirstNet – America’s public safety communications platform – features the first-ever App Catalog geared to first responders. This gives FirstNet subscribers a dedicated location to find meaningful new solutions that have been specifically reviewed for public safety use. Before any mobile solution can be added to the FirstNet App Catalog, it must pass stringent tests for security, relevancy, data privacy and more.
Achieving a FirstNet Listed designation means that the Vizsafe app is a vetted and trusted solution for public safety, meeting FirstNet app requirements. Additionally, FirstNet subscribers will benefit from FirstNet’s reliability and unique benefits while using Vizsafe.
For users, Vizsafe provides situational awareness and visual communications across any mobile or web device with real-time incident reporting, messaging, user tracking, sensor alerts, and live video streaming from both security cameras and mobile users. All assets are mapped geospatially using satellite imagery and on building floorplans where available for wayfinding and navigation.
“We’re proud to achieve the FirstNet Listed designation of our Vizsafe app to further expand support for our nation’s first responders, public safety and law enforcement organizations and the communities in which they serve,” said Peter Mottur, CEO of Vizsafe. “With FirstNet, our customers can now achieve even better performance while using Vizsafe to improve response and reduce risk.”
