Details of the contract were announced during the Enterprise Ireland trade mission to Western Canada, which was organized in close cooperation with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Embassy of Ireland to Canada and led by the Minister for Trade and Development, Joe Costello TD.
D4H aims to ‘Save Lives’ by improving how response teams are managed, we provide our software to 40 Canadian Search & Rescue (SAR) teams in Alberta. These SAR teams serve a population of almost four million. Our software, which was created in Ireland, allows SAR teams to manage their incidents, personnel, and equipment, and submit reports to Alberta’s Provincial Government for the creation of shared statistics.
D4H is multi-award-winning Response Team Management software which is designed especially for the preparation, management, analysis, and prevention of incidents. The software is available as a complete suite or can be broken down into independent modules D4H Personnel & Training, D4H Equipment Management, D4H Live Response and D4H Incident Reporting & Analytics.
Robin Blandford, CEO for D4H Technologies commented:
‘We are excited to begin the implementation of the D4H readiness and response software across all the Canadian Search & Rescue teams in Alberta; we feel the software will greatly enhance the critical work they are doing. The 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’.
Welcoming the announcement Minister Costello said:
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’.
Ross O’Colmain, who heads up Enterprise Ireland’s office in Toronto, added:
‘This agreement between D4H and the Government of Alberta clearly demonstrates the opportunities that exist for innovative and ambitious Irish companies in Canada and around the world.’
