“Geo-location” Based Smartphone App Instantly Notifies the Populace about Dangerous Storms, Missing Persons, Traffic Situations, Crimes in Progress, etc.

New Hampshire’s Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom has funded the Hampton Police Department’s deployment of Ping4 Inc.’s Hyperlocal Citizens Alerts, an app that instantly notifies people of dangers and emergencies wherever they are in the world. Upon deployment, citizens can download this free app on their Apple or Android smartphones and iPads to be instantly notified about natural disasters, dangerous storm situations, missing persons, traffic situations, terrorist attacks, and local crimes in progress. The Casino Ballroom will also use the system to broadcast information on shows, events and promotions at the Casino Ballroom and other local retailers along the Hampton Beach boardwalk.  

“We expect this app to be very useful as our population increases from 15,000 year round residents to 150,000 in the summer,” said Hampton Police Chief Jamie Sullivan. “This allows us to significantly increase our reach to our citizens and visitors, enabling us to notify them of riptides, missing children, crimes, traffic congestion and much more.”

“The Casino Ballroom is pleased to make this contribution to the safety of our local citizens and our visitors to Hampton Beach,” said Fred Schaake, Jr., General Manager, Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom. “We have had a longstanding relationship and commitment to local law enforcement and the protection of the people who live in and visit our community. We also view Ping4’s hyperlocal alerts solution as a revolutionary medium for reaching mobile consumers with valuable information on events, deals and promotions at the Casino Ballroom and along the boardwalk.” 

Ping4Safety is universal free app that that allows citizens to be informed of local public safety alerts wherever they travel in the world. Police can now alert citizens in specifically defined locations as small as a parking space or as large as a continent, in a specific store or shopping mall, or an entire city or state. Ping4Safety is Ping4’s agency-facing solution for local, regional, state and national law enforcement agencies, emergency management agencies, public utilities and educational institutions who look to deliver real-time, Hyperlocal Citizens Alerts.

In addition, the Citizens Alerts app features local merchant deals and offerings through its Ping4Business solution, a unique product that brings value to the user and increases the likelihood of the app staying on the smartphone. It also includes a rich search tool with compass and mapping information.
