ROCHESTER, NY, March 22nd, 2020 – Bryx, a leading provider of first responder technology products, has launched a new COVID-19 Critical Warning banner within its free Bryx 911 mobile alerting application. Keywords associated with the virus are systematically pulled from the supplemental data, triggering a banner that informs first responders of possible cases in which safety protocols and equipment may be necessary.

The company’s unique algorithm, used to trigger the COVID-19 Critical Warning banner, can be extended to provide warnings for future emergencies based on other criteria. This new development stems from Bryx’s demonstrated commitment to providing first responders with a wealth of information—improving not only the preparedness of first responders but the well-being and safety of both responders and the community at large.

The update is available for Android 4.3 or newer, iOS 13.0 or newer, and the universal app.
