SpectraRep and DHS-FEMA are taking part in emergency preparedness and alerting demonstrations at an emergency managers’ conference in Orlando.
SpectraRep was selected this year by the Association of Public Television Stations to provide systems integration and project management services for the Digital Emergency Alert System, or DEAS, program, a wireless data delivery system that aims to deliver improved alert and warning. It’s a project of APTS and the federal government’s FEMA, part of the Department of Homeland Security.
SpectraRep is also touting an updated version of AlertManager, an emergency notification and critical event messaging system. The company is demo’ing interoperability with outbound warning systems including broadcast EAS. AlertManager is used for broadcast EAS activation and group notification, transmitting emergency messages with audio, video and multiple file attachments. The system provides a “Digital Rip & Read” service for newsrooms and targets messages to cell phones, e-mail and other systems.
SpectraRep is owned by BIA Financial Network.
