Heads Up Huntington Kicks off Tuesday
Tuesday, November 5, 2013 - 00:27 Updated 4 weeks ago From Press Release
The public launch will take place on Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 11:30am at the monthly CWHSC meeting held at the Tri-State Fire Academy. HUH is a single app that provides users with critical information in the event of an emergency or disaster incident, as well as multiple other areas of information such as school closings, boil water advisories, major traffic accidents, etc.
This one-of-a-kind product is a custom scripted software application that allows the end user the ability to select which notifications are important to them, as well as the data entry delegate to discern the priority level at which information is sent out. The app is free to the public, and is available in the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
HPD introduces this app as the first official installment of its “Community Force” (CF) initiative.
Occasionally, members of HPD develop a concept for a program which does not contain an element of Law Enforcement, but is a powerful tool for the overall betterment of our community. These projects fall under our “Community Force” Initiative.
The CF Initiative is the department’s method of fostering positive ideologies into the community at large, and provides the residents with resources to enable an atmosphere of progress, growth, and most importantly, hope. Any project under the CF title has little to no element of law enforcement, but rather has been created within the department to demonstrate our commitment to excellence in multiple disciplined collaborations with our stakeholders.
Chief Holbrook stated: “As we reflect on our mission statement, it is the last line: “Meet the expectations of our community” which has inspired our obligation to provide innovative and forward thinking concepts which exceed the conventional philosophies of police departments, and encourage all citizens to be involved in our “Community Force.””
Mayor Steve Williams added, “We challenge every department within the City of Huntington to set a standard that encourages the development of innovative solutions that will make our City safer and more responsive in a manner that sets a threshold for other communities throughout the country to emulate. The HPD, Mountain State Computer and Networking Solutions, and the Cabell Wayne Homeland Security Committee have established a standard for our region, state, and nation by creating the first of its kind uniform emergency and disaster notification system for smart phones. The collaborative efforts of these organizations will make us safer in the Tri-State and will have long term effects on all our municipal operations for years to come.”
