A week after the Philippine national elections wherein Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte was declared as the winner for President, he met with Pure Force and Rescue Corp. Chief Executive Officer Jojo Soliman. The Pure Force executive presented to Duterte his 2-year-old citizen safety and rescue app which the public can use to report emergencies so the appropriate frontliners can be dispatched immediately to the scene.
In an interview with Manila Bulletin, Pure Force CEO Soliman stated that "Sumulat ako ng letter sa kanya na itong system [and application] ipapagamit namin sa Pilipinas, free of charge,” Soliman said.
“Prinesent namin ‘yung Pure Force [dahil] ‘yung capability natin is national. (I wrote a letter to [Duterte] to offer the Pure Force system and application for use in the Philippines, free of charge…because it is capable of nationwide coverage.)”
Soliman explained to Mayor Duterte that by using the Force Force application, or by calling landline number 86505, concerned government agencies can view the reported emergencies which appear in the system.
The Philippine National Police, the Metro Manila Development Authority, the Department of Health, 17 local government units, and 14 cities have already partnered with Pure Force. The aforementioned government agencies and units now have access to Pure Force’s system. Aside from being available nationwide, Soliman also added that in two months, Filipinos abroad can be able to enjoy the same application.
“’Yung [emergency] number ni Mayor [Duterte in Davao] is 911. As soon as maiayos na [with the telecommunication companies] papalitan ko lang ang 86505 to 911.”
Pure Force is also expanding in terms of infrastrucure as they featured a bigger one-building data center which is currently being put up in Sta. Cruz, Manila.
