MAHWAH, NJ – SwiftReach Networks, a leading provider of emergency notification and incident management solutions, announced the successful use of its Swift911™ emergency notification system to aid in the search for a missing child from Fort Wayne, Indiana on August 10, 2017.
When a 4-year-old girl was abducted from her home, local officials issued a missing child alert through the Swift911™ emergency notification system. As reported by Fort Wayne’s NBC, the Swift911™ alert was sent to over 1,500 residents a full 40 minutes before the statewide Amber Alert was deployed.
Shortly after the alert was issued, the child was safely dropped off at a local establishment after dispatchers received more than 50 phone calls from residents with information. According to County Commissioner Nelson Peters, the Swift911™ system “gave people the opportunity to get a head start on finding this little girl.”
