As the nation begins September’s observance of National Preparedness Month, communities all across America are looking for better tools that heighten communication for all their residents so they can be better prepared when dealing with crisis situations. Leading this charge in Florida is Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Giménez, who is committed to adopting In-telligent to increase the safety and wellbeing of his county’s residents. A former Chief of Fire and Rescue, and now mayor of the most populous county in all of Florida, Giménez has a unique perspective on the importance of fast, accurate communication in dealing with emergency situations.
“As mayor, I’m responsible for the safety of all Miami-Dade County residents and visitors,” said Mayor Giménez. “In-telligent is a tool that we are exploring to find the most efficient way to notify officers and County employees of critical and potentially life-threatening events. Using emerging tools like In-telligent shows that we are taking proactive steps to keep all Miamians safe.”
