Wallace Wireless and the Emergency Services Information Network Corporation Announce Release of Operation Respond's Mobile HazMat Transportation Software for the BlackBerry

WIC OREIS Mobile ensures the safety of onsite first responders in HazMat situations

    /24-7PressRelease/ - TORONTO, ON, CANADA, June 19, 2006 - Wallace Wireless, a leading provider of mobile incident management and business continuity solutions, today announced the release of WIC OREIS Mobile. This solution provides mobile first responders with the critical onsite HazMat information they need to protect themselves and the people they are helping.
Operation Response Institute (ORI), powered by its affiliate, the Emergency Systems Information Network Corporation (ESINC), has been providing hazardous materials information to emergency responders with a desktop solution since 1995. By listening to first responders and meeting their needs, OREIS and Wallace Wireless have developed this intuitive and easy to use product,for the estimated two million users in over 50,000 agencies currently using OREIS throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.

WIC OREIS Mobile continues to meet the needs of first responders by providing mobile access to the OREIS solution. BlackBerry handhelds provide critical tools in hazmat response by allowing quick access to five hazmat databases as well as UN ID, placards, and railcar IDs queries.

This easy to use mobile solution is unique in providing responders with RailCar ID information. Hazardous materials traveling by rail can be quickly accessed through the OREIS database on a BlackBerry. When first responders arrive on the scene of a transportation incident, rapidly identifying the danger enables them to act faster and can save lives.

"We are excited to bring Operation Response database access to the handheld", said Rob Moffat, President of Wallace Wireless. "Access to hazardous response information will bring the men and women who protect us, home safely."

WIC OREIS Mobile follows in the tradition of the Wallace Wireless solutions that ensures access to accurate, critical information during any incident. On scene responders are able to communicate quickly and safely by using their BlackBerry. "OREIS web users have been asking for mobile access to our database on the scene, said Dale Everitt, ESINC president and distributor of OREIS database access. "With our new partnership, we are able to continue meeting the needs of first responders."
