Ottawa, Canada – July 24, 2018 – APX, the leader in smart mobile pre-incident planning technology for public safety organizations, today announced that the City of Ottawa has selected the APX CityScape software suite to protect both first responders and citizens.
APX CityScape mobile software – the easiest, fastest, and most effective way to capture and share tactical, interactive pre-incident plan on any device – offers real-time views into all high risk buildings and city assets. It helps emergency responders identify occupancy, risk, hazards and, ultimately, save lives.
By using APX CityScape pre-incident planning and inspection software, the City of Ottawa Fire Services will:
Enhance situational awareness and improve decision-making through better data
Streamline operational processes and improve response time with better, more accurate, real-time information
Improve branch and station interoperability by enabling the sharing of critical information in emergencies
Utilize APX’s powerful mobile first, cloud-based, highly secure software applications
“Keeping citizens safe from unknown risks and providing emergency responders with the most advanced, easy-to-use capabilities and information when seconds count is the vision of the company,” said Paul Martin, President and CEO of APX. “APX CityScape will forever change how public safety departments respond to emergencies. We’re pleased to have been selected by the City of Ottawa Fire Services who will leverage real-time, meaningful, instant urban data through fast wireless networks and smart mobile devices.”
With the adoption of this mobile first smart technology, the City of Ottawa will also be well positioned to take full advantage of imminent public safety advancements such as Next Generation 911 and dedicated public safety broadband networks.
“Ottawa Fire Services is moving forward with implementing the APX software solution primarily because of the exceptional feedback received from our first responders.
During our three-month pilot, our members learned how quick and easy it was to capture valuable, NFPA-compliant pre-incident plans,” said Fire Chief Kim Ayotte. “The data we collect will prove invaluable when responding to critical incidents. The capability of this software will enhance our preparedness and assist in keeping our community safe.”
