OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
more than 24 months
Oklahoma does not have a standardized, secure communication system that allows city, state officials, and emergency management personnel to communicate effectively on a routine basis or in emergency situations. CityConnect allows state leaders to get in touch with their folks, ensure their safety and quickly respond to catastrophic events. The secure Newsfeed provides a place for verified users to get important information with controlled access. This platform will also allow any Oklahoma resident to create an account in order to receive emergency notifications, follow updates from city and state officials. Features: - Emergency recall system allowing state government, local government, and county emergency managers to send emergency notifications with real-time analytics - Integration with current emergency networks to standardize communication statewide - Allows state and local officials to get off of public social media to protect sensitive information - Read receipts for direct and group messaging with real-time analytics - Standardized communication network for all 590 cities and 77 counties Plan: - Start with 10 County Emergency Managers - Integrate 10 Cities and their employees - Scale to all residents of 10 cities
All Oklahomans will benefit from CityConnect starting with state/local officials, emergency managers and lastly residents. Throughout this pandemic public social media, like Facebook, filtered out posts and content they did not believe was ?true? or relevant about COVID-19 and CityConnect would solve this problem allowing leaders to distribute content when and where they need it. CityConnect can also provide life saving connectivity to rural leaders across the state. Last February a massive winter storm caused power grids to fail under the higher-than-normal energy and heating demand from residential and business customers. Two of the electricity reliability commissions servicing the Southern U.S.. The Southwest Power Pool (SPP) and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), ordered rolling blackouts for 14 states including Oklahoma amid the frigid temperatures. Governor Stitt was unable to communicate directly with local leaders quickly and CityConnect solves this.
