The Region of Niagara has selected BlackBerry AtHoc as its critical event management platform. BlackBerry AtHoc will be deployed by Niagara’s 13 municipalities, as well as the Niagara Regional Police Service, enabling advanced communication and faster, more effective crisis response to help keep the region’s nearly 500,000 citizens safe in times of crisis.
