Be well-informed when it counts! Whether in disasters, major incidents or just in certain situations, it is always of crucial importance to inform local citizens quickly, comprehensively and openly. ACHTUNG.ESG! is a modern public information system for rapid provision of current information, when required.

The system provides the following functions:

  • Easy compilation and maintenance of data and reports
  • Fast delivery to all information channels (incl. social media) with a single click
  • Also available as an intuitive smartphone app

The public information system ACHTUNG.ESG! is:

  • user-friendly
  • easy to use
  • scalable and expandable
  • secure

As it is a completely web-based application, ACHTUNG.ESG! can be displayed and used with any browser without any extra software installation required. The system is clearly structured in three parts: Backend (web-based server application), frontend (website) and app (iOS & Android).

This solution is, for example, used by the city of Passau under the name ACHTUNG.Passau! as an information management system for special emergencies.


Information management system for special emergency situations: ACHTUNG.Passau!

ESG was commissioned by the Bavarian city of Passau to develop an innovative and high-performance information management system for special emergency situations:  ACHTUNG.Passau! Due to its geographical position between three rivers, the city of Passau has always been subject to severe flooding. In times of such emergency situations, citizens must constantly be kept informed of the current situation. The distribution of the information across various digital channels was previously carried out manually and information updates were not always clear to the reader.

Based on TARANIS Centre, ACHTUNG.Passau! is a web application which can be displayed and used in any browser without requiring any additional software installation. The specially developed website is available at ACHTUNG.PASSAU!. Citizens can install the ACHTUNG.Passau! for free on their Android and iOS smartphones, in order to keep up-to-date with current situation reports while on the move. The relevant information is also simultaneously distributed to  citizens via the social networks Facebook and Twitter, as  well as through well-establised information channels such as e-mail and Passau’s homepage.
