Our History


ReadyAlert™ Services, LLC, grew from the ashes and twisted wreckage of the twin towers of the World Trade Center disaster in New York City. The founders of ReadyAlert™ Services, LLC, worked for an investment company that lost over 100 employees in this tragic event. Immediately after the attack, stories of bravery and heroism mixed with unbearable pain and loss began to surface.

One such story was about a CIO caught in traffic on the freeway watching as the first plane crashed into the second of the two towers of the World Trade Center. The CIO tried in vain to use his cell phone to contact his employees in the other, or first, tower, to tell them to get out of the building. Then to his horror, he watched the second plane hit the first tower. His employees were just a few floors away from where the plane hit.

Like the entire country, ReadyAlert’s founders were in shock. They were trying to find bits of news; anything that would tell them if any of their associates were still alive. Landline phones were useless and cell phone calls continually received the “all circuits are busy” message.

Throughout September 11, 2001, and for many days thereafter, the founders ReadyAlert experienced first hand that the most available and reliable communications technology in New York City was wireless text messaging. Several of their associates who had escaped before the second plane hit the first tower, and were able to send text messages to family, friends, and office associates to let people know they were safe.

Having lived through this disaster and having analyzed the aftermath of this tragedy, the founders of ReadyAlert decided that a text-based emergency response notification service was not just a good business opportunity but a critically needed service; and so ReadyAlert™ Services, LLC, was established to meet that need.

ReadyAlert™ Services, LLC, was officially founded in 2003. From the beginning, ReadyAlert’s founders decided the alert notification service had to be secure and reliable, affordable for the masses, and it had to be very simple to operate or people would not use it. They started on the task to design a fool-proof system with the capability to contact one or millions of folks in minutes, that would be very easy to use, and one so affordable it could be used by large number of people.

The first two years were spent in design, development, and testing with four beta-test customers. Wide scale sale and implementation of services did not begin until the third quarter of 2005. ReadyAlert’s customer base now includes first responders, government agencies, business, schools, and community organizations.
