RapidWarn structure

What is RapidWarn?

We live in a time when Emergency Coordinators are asked to do more with less – while still being required to maintain effective emergency notification standards. The RapidWarn® application, available from MCA, helps agencies in both the public and private sectors achieve both goals.

Originally, RapidWarn® was designed to be a Weather Message Processing Software. Its initial goal was simple, to enable the activation of outdoor warning sirens based on polygonal weather related events reported by the National Weather Service. As of today, RapidWarn has matured and developed into a comprehensive system to meet our clients evergrowing demand for mass notification products.

RapidWarn is capable of supporting a variety of remote client connectivity options to trigger your network activations. The complete application allows workstations to become full activation points, while its limited version allows defined access linked to a list of emergency scenarios.
