Bellingham, WA, May 21, 2020 – Emergency Reporting® (ER), the global leader in secure, cloud-based reporting and records management software (RMS) for fire and EMS agencies, is pleased to announce the launch of its services in Canada, with the unveiling of a locally-based datacenter and a new website for Canadian users, https://emergencyreporting.ca/. The Canadian ER site is hosted in the Microsoft Azure datacenters, using Azure Canada Central in Toronto as the main environment, with a backup located at Azure Canada East in Quebec City.
ER currently serves hundreds of first responders in Canada and has implemented the new website and locally-based datacenter to better serve current customers and attract new users that are looking for a secure RMS that will meet their needs.
“Our investment into Canada is a significant commitment and we are proud to take the step to expand our operations there,” says David Nokes, CEO of Emergency Reporting. “Data security is of the utmost importance at ER, and we take pride in the fact that we have earned a reputation for being the most trusted, secure RMS on the market. To show our commitment, ER established an entity in Canada that supports our customers and ensures that their data remains in the country and that Canadian data residency and sovereignty are honored.”
ER’s comprehensive platform of Fire software solutions offers Canadian fire agencies operations management, data management, and incident reporting tools needed to get their jobs done, whether on scene or at the station. The cloud-based system enables users to extract actionable data that helps tell their department’s story, secure grants and other funding when it comes time to do budgets, understand resource usage and needs, perform apparatus checks, keep electronic records of incident information for protection in legal cases, and to track progress with reports and visual data analytics.
Products offered on the Canadian website include the Fire Package, Fire Prevention Package, Vision Risk Assessment, Google Maps Integration, CAD Interface, and Safety Analytics.
