The Regional Municipality of Niagara in Southern Ontario, Canada has selected a critical event management platform to improve security operations, emergency response and public safety.

The BlackBerry AtHoc solution will be deployed to Niagara’s 13 municipalities and Niagara Regional Police Service to enable advanced communication and faster, more effective crisis response to help keep the region’s nearly 500,000 citizens safe in times of crisis and increase security and safety resilience. 

With the new mass communications solution, the Niagara Region will modernize its emergency management systems and have the information stakeholders need to make critical safety decisions in real-time, helping protect lives, assets and operations during planned and unplanned events. 

“Ensuring the safety and well-being of our community requires reliable communication systems and collaborative partnerships,” said Ron Tripp, Niagara Region’s acting Chief Administrative Officer.
