The Harbor Safety Committee and Area Maritime Security Committee Conference annually features best practices, innovations and technology which address critical harbor and maritime safety and security issues. FireFly Alert System software by JTR Solutions was among the esteemed products recognized at the NHSC, held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Aligned with the NHSC’s focus “Partnering for Safe, Secure, and Resilient Port Operations,” FireFly provides state-of-the-art safety alert technology. The software disseminates critical information promptly across various Internet enabled devices at one time, ensuring all users receive important communication during emergency situations. What’s more, FireFly’s short code responses enable two-way messaging so that users have the most up-to-date and accurate information possible.
In order to properly explain the alert software, JTR Solutions conducted a live demonstration for conference attendees, which led to the implementation of FireFly in various ports around the world. Chief among these is the Port of Philadelphia, as well as the Delaware Bay and River. Thanks to the Firefly alert system, members of the Coast Guard, maritime community and several state and federal organizations receive accurate, real-time emergency communication that can save lives.
