HAAS Alert Receives FirstNet App Catalog Approval
Monday, May 07, 2018 | Comments

HAAS Alert, a Chicago-based startup formed to make roadways safer, announced it is one of the first applications approved for use on the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet). HAAS Alert's responder-to-vehicle (R2V) service protects first responders and motorists by delivering real-time alerts to drivers and connected cars via smartphone apps and in-vehicle systems when emergency vehicles are nearby and on scene.

The application passed FirstNet's App Review Process and can now be found in the App Catalog. The App Catalog is exclusively for public-safety entities that subscribe to FirstNet services.

"When we learned about how HAAS Alert can protect first responders, we knew they'd be a great addition to the FirstNet applications ecosystem," said Prathima Simha, product marketing manager, AT&T – FirstNet.

The service is integrated with and delivers proactive safety notifications to Waze users. Integration with other popular navigation apps and in-car systems with major automotive brands is on the way. Within the next couple of years, HAAS Alert expects to send real-time alerts to millions of drivers on a daily basis.

"We're proud to be offering road safety technology to all emergency services," said Cory Hohs, CEO of HAAS Alert. "Our availability in the FirstNet App Catalog indicates our strong commitment to providing cellular-enabled safety alerts to drivers throughout the United States."

The ESChat push to talk (PTT) application was certified in March.
