VoiceSecure have developed the UK award winning Emergency Rest Centre (ERC), software installed throughout many UK Councils and Government.
ERC has been designed to provide you with the ability to understand, manage and provide targeted resources for your emergency situations. ERC enables response personnel to predefine their emergency response logistics e.g. the Region, associated Rest and Recuperation Centres, units of water, evacuee capacity, numbers of beds etc. In the event of a disaster on-site response personnel can input numbers of categories and the associated details at each rest centre.
The information entered at the individual rest centre or rapidly established evacuation reception point is also available at any command centre that has the appropriate security clearances. This ensures that a command centre can be in full charge of the situation and manage respite resources with the best possible information.
