Browser based SMS and e-mail public alert system for Florida police.

Public Alert Systems : 29 January, 2008  (Application Story)
Florida community watch system linked to web based public alerts using e-mail or mobile phones.
Public Alert System has joined with the Florida Police Chiefs Education & Research Foundation (FPCERF) to offer the first affordable, easy to use Public Alert System, an all-in-one, web-based community watch/preparedness program with a real-time cell phone and email alert system.

The Public Alert System (PAS) makes it easy for emergency service providers and community organizations to enhance their websites with alert and awareness programs that provide vital information and help residents prepare for the next Emergency or Disaster. With a few clicks, dispatchers can alert thousands by cell phone and/or email within minutes, send real-time alerts to community and staff members, add news, articles, photos, and banners, and provide disaster assessments without the need for an Internet technician.

Who should join the Public Alert System Network? Police and Fire Departments, Schools, Emergency Medical Services, Emergency Operations Centers, Dispatch Centers, Lifeguards, Volunteer Organizations, National and State Parks, Recreation Facilities, Security Agencies, Homeowners Associations, Businesses and other concerned Community Organisations.

Alert types include missing persons, school emergencies, disasters, hurricane updates, suspicious activity, environmental and weather emergencies, wildfires, dangerous marine life, special events and other important notifications.
The Florida Police Chiefs Association's Executive Director, Amy Mercer, stated that, "The FPCERF is excited to offer such a progressive and beneficial program to the communities and citizens located throughout the State of Florida."
Satellite Beach is one of the first cities using the Public Alert System Network. SBPD Chief Lee Cote had this to say about PAS: "The first week we had the system in place, we were able to locate a female Alzheimer patient who walked away from her residence. She was located two miles from where she lived by another resident who was alerted by the police department through this system. We now have several hundred families signed up and are sending out messages on a regular basis."
