November 16, 2007 - -Toronto, ON – ESRI Canada is pleased to announce their partnership with Keigan Systems Inc., developers of CLEER (Catastrophic Level Event Emergency Response). Keigan and ESRI Canada have partnered to provide a complete web-delivered decisionsupport system for public safety and emergency management and preparedness. CLEER – ESRI Version uses a blend of digital maps, ongoing field output and sophisticated Intellectual Property (IP) to arm first responders with a highly visible, real-time, mapping portal from which to manage an entire catastrophic event.
“CLEER – ESRI Version tightly integrates the power and intelligence of CLEER with
ESRI’s web mapping technology, creating a powerful tool for emergency management
professionals,” said Kevin Weaver, Product Manager, Keigan Systems.
First responders and emergency managers can use CLEER – ESRI Version to determine
the safest and strongest plan of action and response to emergency incidents for real-time
and simulated emergency events. CLEER – ESRI Version provides a common operating
picture for emergency response assessment including a clearly mapped forecast of event
progression, and potentially impacted critical assets and addresses to aid in population
risk assessment. This subscription-based solution enables real-time, web-delivered
information to an unlimited authorized user base.
“Joining efforts with ESRI Canada will make CLEER intelligence more accessible to the
global emergency response market,” said Paul Paolatto, President/CEO, Keigan Systems.
“This will get it into the hands of first responders and enable them to do their jobs as
safely and effectively as possible.”
“We are pleased to welcome Keigan to the ESRI Canada Business Partner Program,” said
Robert Murdoch, Business Partner Manager, ESRI Canada. “This solution is an
