Original Press Release:
Consumers and Businesses Efficiently Contact Network of Loved Ones, Co-Workers During Emergencies with EvacuTrack's New Internet-Based Notification System
Member-Based Service Allows Users to Store Important Documents and Data in Encrypted Online Vault
LAKE WORTH, Fla., Oct. 3 -- EvacuTrack(TM) today announced the launch of its Internet-based notification service that allows users to instantly tell family, friends or colleagues their whereabouts and general state of being, as well as safeguard important documents, before or during unforeseen disasters and planned evacuations.
Recent natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and the shock of 9-11 have underscored the need for both consumers and businesses to plan for the unknown and protect irreplaceable items and generally maintain contact with loved ones and colleagues, said Rob Barron, CEO of EvacuTrack.
EvacuTrack, Barron added, is a practical and cost-effective way for both consumers and businesses to plan for emergencies and ensure they don't have to scramble for a link to the outside world when they may need it most.
"Technology can't stop disasters or emergencies from happening, but it can help you stay in touch with the outside world when every second counts," Barron said. "Our goal with EvacuTrack is simply to raise the bar for emergency preparedness."
After users become members of EvacuTrack at evacutrack.com/, they're given a personal ID card with a unique number and security code. During an emergency, users can quickly communicate messages to their network of loved ones or colleagues with a few mouse clicks on the Internet, through a wireless PDA or via a toll-free call to a 24-hour EvacuTrack emergency dispatch number. EvacuTrack members' messages will then be automatically conveyed by e-mail, telephone, fax or SMS to their network of contacts.
EvacuTrack members are also given tools to fax or scan important documents and photos easily for safekeeping in a secure online vault hosted by EvacuTrack in a premier, high-security technology facility. For instance, members may keep documents relating to their homes, cars, valuables, insurance, wills, medical records and photographs in their own private vault for later retrieval anytime, anywhere.
"The time when people most need their important papers is often during their most desperate times -- right before or after an emergency," Barron said. "Finding important papers should be the last thing people have to think about during a time of crisis."
EvacuTrack's personal and family annual membership fees range from $9.95 to $79.95. Small Business and Enterprise annual membership fees range from $29.95 to $499.95.
