D4H Wins 5 Yr Canadian SAR Contract

Irish Cloud Software Company Decisions [D4H] Wins Landmark Contract with Canadian Search & Rescue Services



130614_Decision_D4H.pngDublin company Decisions [D4H] has secured a five-year contract to supply the Government of Alberta with their cloud software which  ‘Save Lives' by improving the management of emergency response teams.



Decisions [D4H] (@D4H) software, which was created in Ireland, is a response team management tool that helps record and analyze response incidents, members, equipment, and training. According to the company, their cloud based software automates and replaces the need for generic time consuming spreadsheet and word processing software, with a collaborative tool built with the end user in mind.



The software is to be used by 40 Canadian Search & Rescue (SAR) teams in Alberta who serve a population of almost four million across a landmass over seven times the size of Ireland, allowing them to submit reports to Alberta's Provincial Government for the creation of shared statistics.



Since the foundation of 'Decisions for Heroes' in 2008 by entrepreneur Robin Blandford, the startup has expanded into 11 countries, and now manages responders in Petrochemical, Energy, Mining, Fire, Hazmat, Maritime, Pharmaceutical production and Public Safety. In Ireland clients include the Irish Coast Guard and Irish Water Safety.

According to Blandford, the SAR teams that have been using [D4H] internationally are huge fans of the system using it to generate incident reports, flag emergency responses and provide them with an all encompassing management tool that spans their entire search and rescue team. Commenting on the Canadian deal, Blandford said; "We are excited to begin the implementation of our software across all the Canadian Search & Rescue teams in Alberta, which we feel will greatly enhance the critical work they are doing."

Details of the contract were announced earlier this week during the Enterprise Ireland trade mission to Western Canada led by the Minister for Trade and Development, Joe Costello TD. He said; "Decisions [D4H] is a great example of an innovative, export-focused Irish company with a world-class product offering. Their success in securing this contract with the Government of Alberta demonstrates the quality of their technology and underlines Decisions' continued success in export markets around the world.


I commend them for their commitment to developing new markets and I encourage other innovative Irish companies to do the same with the support of my Department, our Embassy network across the globe and Enterprise Ireland," the Minister added.



Decisions [D4H] started its life in the DIT Hothouse incubator and is now headquartered at the Baily Lighthouse, Howth, a famous landmark which has been preventing loss of life in Dublin Bay for over 200 years.
