ELERTS was founded on the belief that while “See Something Say Something” is easy to understand, it is not so easy to report a concern. Telephone calls are an inefficient reporting medium and many people do not want to make a phone call to report a concern. The growing popularity of smartphones enabled ELERTS to create an easy-to-use communication platform that lowers the barrier to report something. ELERTS is dedicated to delivering rapid situation awareness and actionable information to Operations Centers that utilize our platform.
ELERTS  is a two-way incident management system deployed at the Operations Centers of our customers.  Safety concerns, maintenance issues, and customer experience concerns are quickly routed to the appropriate Operations Center. A 2-way real-time chat is established between a dispatcher and the person reporting the problem.  Nearby resources, can be displayed to a dispatcher, providing enhanced situation awareness. 

Chris Russo-  is a lifelong First Responder and is highly decorated, having received numerous awards, including Massachusetts’ highest “Medal of Honor,” recognizing his outstanding career in fire services, incident response and public safety education. For the past seven years, Chris served as Deputy Fire Chief of Hull, Massachusetts and was promoted to Chief of Department in January 2015.  He has personally been involved in many high profile events, including the Response and Reconnaissance team at Ground Zero 9/11, the Response team at Worcester Cold Storage Fire, the rescuing of several Kayakers trapped in the Weir River Culvert, the rescue of 175 people from a commuter boat in Boston Harbor and many more emergency incidents.

Ed English -  is a successful serial entrepreneur.  Prior to ELERTS, Ed served as CEO of interMute, a computer security company that was a pioneer in anti-spyware software and which was acquired by Trend Micro.  Ed has an extensive background in product creation, computer networking, e- commerce and establishing OEM sales channels and partnerships.
