Pottstown-based CODY Systems has launched a COVID-19 risk alerting network for public safety and first responders and offers free help with optimizing COVID-19 tracking data.
Through its new #HealthRisk Notification Ecosystem, the company’s COBRA.net technology enables potential COVID risk notifications and offers alerts for frontline personnel, analysts, and dispatchers.
The family-owned company has adapted its COBRA.net data-sharing and exchange platform to create real-time alerts and network-wide searches that are based on a #HealthRisk tag that has been newly added to relevant records in their databases.
The new functionality promptly alerts frontline personnel to potential COVID-19 exposure when people are performing duties involving community engagement such as answering calls for medical aid or conducting traffic stops. The company has provided these updates for free.
“As a family company with a deep-rooted history in supporting law enforcement and officer safety, CODY wanted to do something to support frontline personnel during this time of national crisis,” said Frances Heffner, President of the firm.
He added that “by leveraging the COBRA platform’s inherent data-agnostic sharing technology, we are able to help by providing this type of proactive alerting, and we are proud to do this at no cost.”
