FirstWatch Selects ROAMING MESSENGER for Bio-Surveillance System

10/20/2004 - ROAMING MESSENGER(TM) (OTCBB: RMSG) announced that the company now reports sales of its ROAMING MESSENGER product for use in bio-terrorism emergency alerting to public safety personnel.

The ROAMING MESSENGER product is being incorporated into FirstWatch's bio-surveillance system, for a government public health organization, with other installations expected to follow in rapid success.

"This is very exciting for us," said the company's CEO, Mr. Jon Lei. "We have been working with FirstWatch for some time now, and we are pleased to see the hard work beginning to pay off. It's an initial step and one of many on our journey."

While the exact terms of the transaction are still confidential, this sale reinforces the company's channel sales strategy.

FirstWatch is a powerful bio-surveillance system that monitors calls to central dispatch systems and identifies potential bio-terrorism and other health threats, by monitoring and detecting anomalies in call patterns coming into the 911 or other call center. Once an event is detected, the FirstWatch system automatically dispatches a ROAMING MESSENGER enabled alert, which tracks down the appropriate responder on any of his or her wired or wireless devices, providing real-time information and response capabilities.

"While we must be sensitive to our sales partner's requirements, we balance that with the requirement that our shareholders need to know of our ongoing sales growth," said Mr. Lei. The company expects to provide more details on this transaction as the time is appropriate.
