CHICAGO, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Is your organization at risk when it comes to providing 911 protection to your employees and visitors? What are the liability implications of not actively managing E911 location information? RedSky Technologies, Inc. is helping organizations answer these important questions with its new online E911 Risk Assessment. RedSky, the leading developer of E911 and other location information management solutions, today introduced its free, no obligation E911 Risk Assessment which can be taken on the RedSky Web site. Available at http://www.redskyE911.com/readiness , the assessment captures basic information about an organization and defines potential areas of risk in terms of workplace safety and corporate liability for E911. The tool provides organizations with information about specific aspects of their environment or communications network that may negatively impact prompt emergency response to employees, visitors and citizens operating in and around the workplace. Designed for an organization's telecom and IT management as well as corporate risk management and security directors, the E911 Risk Assessment also provides a candid analysis of how the company may be liable in the event of a mishandled emergency. "By some estimates, more than 60 million Americans go to work each day without the same level of 911 protection they have at home," said Tony Maier, CEO of RedSky Technologies. "This problem is becoming even more significant as the workforce becomes more mobile and technologies such as IP softphones that run on laptops and other wireless devices become more prevalent." The new E911 Risk Assessment determines an organization's E911 risk in three key areas: workforce mobility and infrastructure; facility location and complexity; and work environment. Upon answering a short series of questions, participants immediately receive an online report that assesses their organization's risk, discusses the implications and presents initial recommendations for implementing an E911 solution. "Many factors impact corporate risk management, especially in the areas of employee and workplace safety," said Maier. "E911 has become a basic corporate service that employees expect and deserve. RedSky's software solutions enable organizations to provide 911 dispatchers with the location-specific information that is critical for effective emergency response." As part of its education effort, RedSky also is offering organizations who take the E911 Risk Assessment a free E911 Readiness Plan.
