ERMS wins Canadian Red Cross RFP for Mass Notification System Provider

April 30, 2015 – Oakville | As part of a renewed strategic plan, The Canadian Red Cross (CRC) issued a Request for Proposal in November 2014 to assist with the selection of a mass notification system provider to improve business operations and enhance disaster management response capabilities. ERMS Corporation’s (ERMS) bid proved to be the best fit for their needs.

The CRC is a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to improving the lives of vulnerable people in Canada and throughout the world. With its National Office in Ottawa, four zone offices (Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, and Western), and regional offices within each zone, CRC operates a widely decentralized organization across Canada and internationally, supported by over 3,500 employees and 20,000 volunteers.

 “We’re pleased to have been selected to provide services to an organization widely recognized as a humanitarian leader,” said Sylvain Rollin, President and CEO.  “Providing them with the necessary tools to enhance their ability to quickly respond to emergencies and disasters gives us great pride,” he added.
