Intrado Inc., the provider of solutions that manage and deliver mission-critical information for telecommunications providers and public safety organizations, announced a contract with the Greater Harris County (Texas) 9-1-1 Emergency Network, to deliver an enhanced mobile safety solution to area police. Intrado’s unique solution, IntelliVector(SM) Emergency Roadside Medical Messaging Service (ERMMS), gives victims of motor vehicle accidents — in this case police officers — access to life-saving medical care based on their personal medical and health care provider profiles. Under the terms of the contract, Intrado will provide both the technology and data management interface to the existing regional 9-1-1 system and will serve as the system integrator for partners such as Cross Country Automotive Services (Cross Country) and Roadside Telematics Corporation in delivering enhanced emergency response. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, each year approximately 27 million motor vehicle crashes result in 5.2 million injuries, 250,000 of which are life threatening. For those seriously injured, the minutes just after the crash are critical. ERMMS significantly enhances the potential of the 9-1-1 system and supports its goal of helping to save lives. If a vehicle crashes, Intrado’s IntelliVector EES helps to route the Cross Country contact center with the existing 9-1-1 call center and updates the Road Medic system for delivery of occupant-centric data to the responding EMS.
