Mass Shooting Alerts Now Transmitted By TerrorMate Globally

Press Release Dec 05, 2017

NEW YORK, N.Y., December 5, 2017 — TerrorMate, the world’s first terror alert app, is expanding its user alert capabilities to include mass shootings.

The real-time intelligence system with well-established terror attack and terror threat alerting capabilities will now deliver structured, accurate mass shooting alerts and safety recommendations to its users within two minutes of an attack anywhere in the world. 

Developed by TerrorTech LLC, the free proprietary mobile application alerts users to incident-specific information such as location of the shooting event, number of reported perpetrators, areas to avoid, and number of casualties, along with potentially live-saving safety tips and continuous updates for the duration of the event. In addition, TerrorMate’s comprehensive crisis communication and mass notification solution unifies all channels, supporting communication and collaboration during critical events and ensuring that users remain fully informed, in contact with loved ones and first responders, and as safe as possible at all times.

As Barry Oberholzer, founder of TerrorMate, explains, “In the wake of the October mass shooting at the Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, our supportive, proactive user base urged us to broaden the categories and scope of TerrorMate’s alerts, so we quickly expanded our reporting and warning capabilities to include mass shootings.”

On average, TerrorMate alerts users eight minutes faster than the mainstream media. “In a potentially life threatening event where every second counts, actionable and verified information is crucial,” adds Oberholzer. “In two minutes or less, the TerrorMate app warns users of a mass shooting event and relays critical information to inform on-scene decisions that could save lives.”

Based in Belgium, TerrorMate’s 24-hour international operations center pairs expert analysis with cutting-edge technology to identify and track mass shootings, terror threats, and terrorist attacks across the globe. Former military and intelligence personnel employ an integrated approach to gather real-time terrorist and mass shooting data. They then analyze, verify, and rapidly share vital information with the public during critical events to ensure the optimum degree of safety.

“We push far beyond the usual internet, social media, dark web sources, and telegram channels,” says Oberholzer. “Our proprietary software tracks hundreds of key words to gather intelligence and monitor a wide variety of environments. What is more, we factor in extra layers of intelligence from user and public reports, and rely on our strong partnerships with national and international law enforcement agencies and first responders to keep us fully informed. Together, these elements make TerrorMate the most dependable application for keeping ourselves, our families, and our friends safer in these uncertain times.”
