Emergency Reporting System Requirements

Browser Support Policy

Browsers are very frequently exploited by attackers that are trying to gain access to your vital data.  To keep your confidential data safe, we require up-to-date browsers when accessing Emergency Reporting’s SaaS application and mobile devices.  As new versions of browsers are released, Emergency Reporting removes support for older versions. For specific details about support for different types of browsers, review the following information.

As a customer of Emergency Reporting, you must remain on a supported environment – including applications and platforms – to receive technical support. If a browser or device is no longer being supported by the manufacturer, you may be required to upgrade to a currently supported browser, cell phone, tablet or operating system to continue receiving technical support services.
