New Self-Registration Portal for REVERSE 911® Emergency Notification System Now Available

TEMECULA, CA--(Marketwire - November 4, 2009) - PlantCML® today announced the release of its new Self-Registration Portal (SRP) for the patented REVERSE 911® emergency notification system. This company-hosted gateway offered through subsidiary Dialogic Communications Corporation (DCC) will provide public safety operations a proactive means for gathering contact information from the community-at-large, ultimately improving communications during all types of contingencies.

The SRP is a simple-to-access web tool that allows local residents to sign up to receive alerts issued by local law enforcement, fire/EMS or emergency management. Once implemented, the SRP's URL (website address) or quick link appears on an operation's home page, forwarding visitors to DCC's hosted portal. Here, they can complete a short form with fields for address, telephone number(s), etc., easily enlisting to receive future system-generated notifications.

Through Microsoft® Bing™ Maps, the latitude and longitude of the individual's address are calculated, with the location quickly appearing on a digital, street-level display. If the position is incorrect, perhaps due to a typographical error, he or she can simply move a pin to correct it. Participants may also update their personal contact information, physical address, etc. as often as necessary in order to keep the data current. This information is seamlessly geo-coded into the address database utilized by the REVERSE 911 emergency notification system on a scheduled basis.

"With so many people transitioning from landlines to cell, wireless and VoIP phones, the collection of 9-1-1 data is growing increasingly difficult," said Mike Adams, Director of Product Management. "For this reason, today's public safety operations must seek assistance from the communities they serve. The SRP is just one more way they can engage local residents in order to expand the reach and overall effectiveness of their REVERSE 911 system."

The SRP features highly robust administrative capabilities, allowing municipalities to individually establish security parameters, as well as customize the interface. This includes defining the fields that can be viewed and/or completed by participants, determining the location and zoom level of map displays, tailoring email templates and selecting fonts, colors, backgrounds, etc. to match their own website.

The SRP for the REVERSE 911 emergency notification system was field tested by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department (SBCSD), where it received excellent reviews for its design, adaptability and ease of use.
