Today's Unfortunate Events on Parliament Hill

Posted by ERMS Corporation on Wed, Oct 22, 2014

The events that are currently unfolding in our nation’s capital are unparalleled in recent history, and at ERMS our thoughts are with those who are affected by the situation. Some of our clients and friends were caught in the midst of the attack, and for many others the reality of the threat was all too close.

Ensuring the safety of the Canadian population is the absolute priority. ERMS is committed to support mass communication needs in all emergency situations, and the events of this morning are no exception.

Today, our emergency notification system was used by our customers in the Ottawa area to alert their stakeholders of the situation. Our hope is that this remains an isolated incident, and we only find comfort in knowing that our system can really make a difference.
