- Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, FL (1888PressRelease) September 30, 2010 - Based emergency notification company, viaRadio Corporation announces the release of an iPhone application version of its HEARO Local Alert Receiver. The application allows emergency managers across Florida to reach citizens by rapidly delivering emergency and severe weather notifications to large numbers of iPhones through its ENVOY Emergency Warning System.
The HEARO application is available for purchase through the Apple Store online and on iPhones. Currently, the application provides warnings for all counties in Florida. viaRadio plans a nationwide roll out soon after the Florida release.
By utilizing advanced "push technology", once the HEARO App is installed, an iPhone will alert as soon as a warning message is issued - even during a phone call.
"This HEARO iPhone application gives more people the opportunity to get immediate information from trusted sources such as emergency managers and the National Weather Service," says Bill Marriott, chief technology officer of viaRadio. "Just like the HEARO Local Alert Receiver, the app now offers reliable, immediate information on pending emergencies delivered directly to your mobile phone."
The Florida Division of Emergency Management and county emergency managers use viaRadio technology to notify first responders and local residents of emergencies. HEARO carries selected NOAA weather warnings and other public safety text alerts. Unlike standard weather applications available for mobile devices, the HEARO iPhone app also receives emergency messages from local officials.

The systems include user-friendly software designed to trigger instantaneous text alerts to HEARO receivers. Systems in operation provide warning and post-event information for natural and man-made disasters as well as Amber Alerts.
