Partnership With Firetide Enables Safer Medical Facilities

CLAREMONT, N.H., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New Hampshire-based Red River, a leading information technology (IT) services provider, announced a partnership today between Red River Healthcare and Firetide, a provider of wireless infrastructures that enable multimedia services for federal and commercial customers, as part of the launch of Red River's new healthcare IT division.

Red River will partner with Firetide on the implementation of the company's expertise in solutions that support video surveillance, security and access control of medical centers to ensure optimum security and monitoring of facilities. 

"Firetide fulfills an important niche in healthcare security," said Charlie Franco, director of Red River Healthcare. "Safety is our number one priority, and today it is more important than ever that our healthcare facilities are closely monitored and that all persons are accounted for.
