Ping4 is the free Hyperlocal Citizens Alerts app that instantly notifies people of dangers and emergencies wherever they are in the world. Ping4 is the only app to put lifesaving information in their hands immediately wherever they are. Ping4’s hyperlocal alerts leverage proprietary geo-fencing technology to pinpoint a location and rich media alerts to wake up users’ smartphones with a pop-up, text, audio message or digital photo of the specific emergency situation. Law enforcement authorities can enlist help from the community in solving crimes via a truly anonymous “A-Tip” feature. The app works over GPS and cellular networks as well as in Wi-Fi hotspots and doesn’t tap data plan minutes or place undue strain on smartphone batteries.
Ping4’s disruptive and patent-pending technology allows public safety agencies and businesses to target and reach citizens who have "opted-in" to receive specific types of safety alerts based on their proximity to a defined event, such as an accident, natural disaster or crime scene, missing person, etc. Ping4’s public safety and emergency management capabilities address a dire need for real-time emergency information services in an increasingly violent and hazardous world.
