The Application Community, or AppComm, is designed to be a clearinghouse for applications related to public safety and emergency response, for use by the general public and rst responders. Some of the apps available bear titles such as Campus Sentinel, 911 Help, Reroute, Quake Buddy and a couple named Emergency Response Guide- book.

Chris Russo, founder and ex- ecutive vice president of Elerts Corp. and Deputy Fire Chief of Hull, Mass., cited their importance. "Recent events impact- ing public safety have demonstrated the incredible power of mobile applica- tions, advanced technologies and social media," he said. • Portal promotes collaborative approach to public safety apps BY GREG CROWE APCO is also in the process of developing standards that govern the apps and their distribution.
