To pursue efforts in building a safer and stronger society, Pure Force and Rescue Corp., extends their services by providing two new devices: A smoke detector and a flood sensor.
“If there is fire or smoke, it will sound the alarm by activating the SIM card inside,” said Jojo Soliman, CEO of Pure Force and Rescue Corp. “So, wherever you live, Quezon City, Manila, Pasig, your location will be spotted on our systems. And then we can confirm this and send first responder.”
The smoke detector is part of Pure Force’s efforts in making sure that first responders manage to contain an incident before it worsens. Along with the smoke detector, Soliman aims to help the local government distribute the flood sensor devices. Once water goes above the flood sensor for up to two minutes, it will immediately send an alert to the Pureforce HQ. This will alert the government which areas are flooded, letting them make announcements, to inform people which roads to avoid.
The smoke detectors and the flood sensors is only the beginning of Pure Force’s campaign for an improved first responder system. Soliman has forged partnerships with other companies with differing specialties to create a stronger, unified system.
Clark, Pampanga, for instance, has already installed 96 HD surveillance cameras with features such as infrared and license plate reading.
“The partnership is between Huawei and Converge and D2RNB,” said Soliman. “So D2RMB is the contractor, and Converge will provide all the fiber optics, and we’ll provide nationwide response system. Then Converge will also provide the safe city, the CCTVs.”
“We decided to bond together so that we would be able to provide premium command center services with a system to match with the fiber optics offered by Converge,” said Don Quitos, CEO of D2RMB Solutions.
The next plan is the installation of 87 more HD surveillance cameras within the year in Clark. Petty crimes and accidents are being watched. However, according to Quintos, the widespread CCTVs will give greater emphasis on monitoring smuggling activities.
Among the solutions Quintos introduced is the BriefCam. It is a surveillance solution that allows hours of video to be viewed by minutes. For instance, you can choose to see red cars passing through the highway. You can also choose between small, medium, or large vehicles to view. This will make sorting through videos easier. All authorities need is a description of the car they are looking for.
“This command center is equipped with six months recording,” Quintos said. “Within six months you’ll be able to see or view back who planted a thing in your car.”
Olongapo City is also updating their surveillance systems to improve security.
