..to improve the safety of people and institutions everywhere through the use of technology. Using crowd-sourced technology and pairing it with tactical strategies borrowed from the military, Warnable aims to enable institutions to remain prepared for any type of threat that it may face.
While technology has advanced to allow people to hail cabs from their phones or use virtual reality to guide them around cities, emergency response innovations has largely remained stagnant.
By empowering individuals through the use of smartphones that are ubiquitous in today’s society, Warnable aims to take the emergency response philosophy of “See something, say something” to a whole new level.
"The technology, methods, and procedures for dealing with emergencies today have not changed materially since the fire alarm was invented in 1890."
At the same time, institutions are facing the problem of addressing a growing number of threats with very different needs for each situation. This includes the recent emergence of the intelligent attacker, who possesses the ability to individually wreak mass havoc.
While these attacks are happening on an increasing basis, gun control remains a contentious issue that is unlikely to be resolved anytime soon. The need for a tool that helps institutions guide their populations through crisis has never been greater than it is today.
