AEGIS EMERGENCY PLANNING AND DISASTER RESPONSE SOLUTIONS
Critical Response Technologies, Inc. (CRT) and it’s Aegis™ emergency management software platform serves the commercial and governmental property sectors. Our clients are the property management teams that are responsible for the facilities, the assets, and most importantly for the people that occupy the buildings, facilities and complexes that they oversee. End users include those management teams as well as the local public safety jurisdictions (police, fire, emergency medical) that are responsible for protecting the client properties. Aegis establishes a common operating language, that along with accompanying methodologies, such as Community Policing philosophies, empowers the citizen public to effectively institute, and utilize protective actions, making the system exponentially more effective.
Aegis software and integrated methodologies are the result of many years of combined real-world professional experience and technology developmental effort. This effort has culminated in a very comprehensive, cutting-edge, interactive emergency management system. The virtual “hub” of this system is a sophisticated, server driven, information processing, storage, and delivery database network. At the heart of CRT’s network are high performance servers, redundantly imaged, and housed in dedicated state of the art server farms. Hardware and software is supervised and protected, both physically and internally, against direct attack, and intrusion with the most current premises and software security, updated on a continuous basis.
The first step in the ultimate goal of delivering vital and useable information, to our end user clients, and public safety jurisdictions, is information collection emphasizing security, risk & vulnerability. CRT employs highly trained and experienced security consultants who utilize and leverage technology, through customized applications, to efficiently collect large quantities of critical information that we call “big data”. We upload this information to the network which then processes, organizes and outputs “actionable intelligence” to a user-friendly web interface. Information is then accessible via any Internet connected device. Aegis ensures that this critical information is always current, accessible and viable.
The “road map” for information collection, organization, retrieval and ultimately end use is our “19/30 Matrix”. This is the information structure that defines the Aegis program. The two basic components of this structure are crossed-referenced Core Elements and Reporting Categories. Nineteen core elements consist of multimedia resources such as contact lists, hazmat inventories, summary reports, floor plans, photos, videos, training scenarios, real-time data delivery resources, and so on. Thirty reporting categories consist of the facility’s operating systems, physical
components, policies, procedures and critical information relating to the people that occupy the facility. These dissimilar information resources are integrated, and dynamically linked, providing instant access to vast quantities of interactive facility “intelligence”. End users have, at their fingertips, the ability to retrieve and utilize this critical information via an intuitive, user friendly web interface and/or our “See Something Say Something” mobile smart device application.
