BlackBerry AtHoc

The Melbourne Shield Post Event Video

Back in June, Briggs Communications partnered with BlackBerry’s AtHoc to launch a mass incident alerting and communication solution for Melbourne’s (Australia) major venues and organisations; enabling them to communicate during a critical incident affecting the city.

BlackBerry has now released the Post Event Video.

The Melbourne Shield uses AtHoc, BlackBerry’s Crisis Alerting software, to connect Melbourne’s major venues and organisations in an exclusive critical incident network – immediately alerting key personnel when a major incident occurs and enabling them to communicate with their counterparts at other organisations; coordinating the city’s response.

The aim of the Melbourne Shield is to create a secured, connected community in both the private and public sector that can effectively communicate with other businesses, departments or personnel in real-time, should an incident take place.

BlackBerry AtHoc is being offered as a shared solution between Melbourne Shield members, establishing a critical incident communication network which can connect places of mass gatherings such as stadiums, malls and convention centres, as well as infrastructure such as hotels, hospitals, schools, universities and businesses.

Collaboration, resource sharing and two-way communication will be a necessity for responding to contemporary and future risks. An instant and credible communication channel between Melbourne’s major organisations will drastically increase the efficiency and efficacy of the city’s response to critical incidents.
