INTRODUCING FORSSE: A BREAKTHROUGH ANDROID APP FOR PERSONAL SAFETYGet the right information to the right emergency response team—fast
DENVER, CO (OCTOBER 2010) – Soteria Systems, LLC announces its breakthrough mobile personal security system, FORSSE ™ (pronounced FORCE), is now available to Android users. By subscribing to the FORSSE service, users have the peace of mind knowing that the FORSSE team is there to quickly respond to potentially harmful situations 24/7 anywhere a FORSSE subscriber has cellular coverage. Subscribers can launch the Market from their mobile phone to search for and download the FORSSE app.
FORSSE is a complete on-call, personal security system, providing its subscribers the ability to instantaneously notify a response team of a threat or crisis by simply pushing a button on the Android. Unlike other mobile personal safety applications that merely notify a user’s selected contacts through email or text message, a FORSSE alert is handled by an experienced and well-trained monitoring team that is on call 24/7 to coordinate the resolution of the crisis by notifying the nearest and most appropriate emergency response team.
Upon activation of an alert, the FORSSE team is able to review critical information concerning the subscriber and the incident, including continuous GPS location information of the subscriber, audio recordings of the incident to validate the crisis, and a complete personal profile created by the subscriber during registration. Using this information, the FORSSE team is able to quickly and efficiently notify the best-suited and nearest emergency response team to respond and resolve a crisis or potential threat.
FORSSE is kicking off a nationwide campaign with a fall tour to a diverse group of colleges and universities to generate awareness of the FORSSE service and promote the safety and well-being of others. At no cost to the school, colleges and universities choosing to participate are able to monitor and respond to any alert triggered on campus grounds. FORSSE improves the peace of mind of both students and parents while their loved ones are away from home. The FORSSE service is not just for students, but provides an ideal solution for all who have concerns about their personal safety.
Soteria Systems has completed the FORSSE application for the iPhone and it is currently in the review process for the iTunes store. A version for Blackberry smartphones will be available later this year.
FORSSE, developed by Soteria Systems, LLC, is a wireless technology service that transforms a mobile device into a real-time, monitored and concealed personal alarm service for those situations when safety is a concern. FORSSE fills a void that currently exists in the personal security marketplace.
