RediStat has announced a partnership with ALERT FM to provide emergency messaging services to its healthcare clients. In addition, RediStat is developing a ground-breaking video communications service in conjunction with Americas Emergency Network.

The announcements were made by RediStat President, Michael Hemlepp, at the Florida Governors Hurricane Conference being held in Ft. Lauderdale.

We are very pleased to be associated with ALERT FM, Mr. Hemlepp said, because they are leaders in emergency messaging and have built the state-of-the-art system necessary to deliver immediate alerts directly to private citizens, businesses and our clients -- healthcare facilities -- while AENs breakthrough technology will allow us to build a video-communications system tailor-made for our industry.

RediStat is a Comprehensive Emergency Management Planning (CEMP) company specializing in healthcare, including hospitals, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. RediStat has developed the most sophisticated CEMP in the healthcare industry, enabling its clients to transfer from normal operations to a crisis mode with minimal disruption to the daily routine.

This process is referred to as transparent transition. Additionally, RediStat provides mass notification and satellite communications technology to its clients emergency response capabilities.

After Katrina, it was apparent a colossal failure of planning had occurred, Hemlepp stated, so we have taken the federally mandated CEMP to a new level of competence for our healthcare clients, and are providing advanced technologies and services to ensure comprehensive execution. We are convinced that this level of planning will save lives and heartaches.

Working with RediStat, we were able to define a specialized AEN application for the healthcare industry, said Bryan Norcross, and being stationed in South Florida over the years, Max and I know firsthand the disruption and destruction that severe weather and other disasters can inflict.

ALERT FM, a service of Global Security Systems (GSS), allows authorized emergency management officials to send severe weather and other warnings to specific groups of first responders, businesses and citizens. The system is FM radio-based, so information can be distributed to a large number of recipients in just seconds using special receivers, operating independently of vulnerable land and cellular phone towers.

ALERT FM technology will be utilized by RediStat as a mass notification system, so healthcare facility administrators can immediately inform an unlimited number of personnel and family members anywhere in the world, via user-selected devices, before, during or after an emergency.

ALERT FM is a technology that adapts well to a variety of needs for emergency messaging in our communities, large and small, said R. Matthew Straeb, GSS executive vice president. RediStat has recognized how this system can improve communications between healthcare facilities and families of patients, their employees and their own families, taking away the fear and uncertainty in an emergency situation.
