Roaming Messenger to Provide Integrated Crisis Response Systems

9/26/2005 - Prepared Response, Inc. (PRI) announced they have selected Roaming Messenger®, Inc. (OTCBB: RMSG) as their technology partner to provide mobile messaging capabilities to emergency response personnel. PRI's crisis management system, Rapid Responder(TM), gives police, fire and other emergency responders instant access to more than 300 site-specific data points, including tactical response plans, floor plans, satellite imagery, interior and exterior photos, staging areas, hazardous materials locations, utility shut-offs, and evacuation routes for schools and outlying buildings. By utilizing Roaming Messenger's interoperable mobile messaging platform, PRI's Rapid Responder system will be able to securely deliver crucial tactical information to handheld devices used by emergency responders and key personnel.

Roaming Messenger, as the single point of integration to the mobile world, simplifies extending the functionality of existing applications.

"Prepared Response, a leader in their market space, recognized that the ability to deliver critical information to the right person at the right time is the obvious next step for crisis management systems. We look forward to working with them to build out their state-of-the-art technology solutions for emergency responders at the local, state and federal levels."

Not only do first responders need instant notification, but also essential data unique to each incident. Roaming Messenger will allow Rapid Responder to quickly deliver vital information to people on the front lines who can then make decisions in real-time."
