SMS locator, video and mobile emergency - FlagMii EML

Mobile tools for maximum control
over civil protection operations

FlagMii®EML is a cloud-based software platform that allows Civil Protection and Homeland Security services to implement tools typical of virtual Operating Rooms. Coordinators can personally observe the progress of operations, even remotely, and technical consultants can provide timely assessments before even going to the site.

In addition, the integrated GIS allows to locate any person of interest, without special devices and by sending a single SMS. The movements of the teams and of all the people tracked are also visible on the map with live tracking.

Live video from remote area

Live video from remote area

With FlagMii®EML, Civil Protection coordinators can receive live video from the areas of intervention on the territory. A few clicks are enough to activate a dedicated video channel using the smartphone of the field operators.
No additional device and no installed app are required!

This function is important for example for:

  • Assessing the situation of a crisis event first-hand, yet remotely.
  • Provide specialists (geologists, seismologists, …) with an immediate view of the ongoing situation, even if they are far from the location.
  • Support technicians and provide targeted information, thanks to the possibility of watching first-hand what they see.

Team tracking

Team tracking

Without the need for pre-installed apps on operator smartphones, you can view the real-time position of the intervention teams in the FlagMii®EML GIS system. Just send an SMS to the phone of the desired operator and the system starts detecting their movements.

Thanks to the tracking function, you can view the route traveled by multiple operators on the map.
For example, this is particularly useful for verifying which part of the territory has been traveled by the explorers or to provide indications on the actions to be taken.

  • Works with any device
  • No preinstalled app required
  • Multiple targets can be tracked in one single session

Multiple live streams

Multiple live streams

Sometimes you need to observe the intervention area from multiple points of view, or several operators are intervening on several fronts, as in the case of huge fires and landslides.

With FlagMii®EML you can activate multiple video streams at the same time, each connected to one of the smartphones present on site – that of an operator, of a technician or even of an ordinary citizen.

The video streams can be shared with experts and coordinators from other structures, to carry out a coordinated management of larger events.



Through FlagMii®EML, it is possible to exchange attachments in the most common formats with the operator in the field. Again, no pre-installed app is required.

For example:

  • The operator can send photographs to the Operation Centre;
  • The Operation Centre can send diagrams and technical schemes to operate on plants;
  • The operator can receive maps and floor plans, for example the evacuation plans of a building or the location of gas pipes.

Archive of managed events


All the activities performed using FlagMii®EML – the assessment sessions, the data exchanged and the chat communications – are stored in a safe and secure way. The events archive is always accessible for further consultation. Audio and video sessions are also recorded and can be played back at any time.

How it works

FlagMii®EML is based on the Emergency Mobile Link, a direct reserved channel between the Operation Centre workstations and the smartphone of on-field operators.

Thanks to the app-free technology, all smartphone models are supported.

How it works
  • The coordinator in the Operation Centre sends an SMS with a link to the on-field operator;
  • The on-field operator clicks the link in the SMS;
  • The coordinator get the exact location automatically and starts the tracking;
  • A private and secure digital channel is created between the person and the operator;
  • Then, the following functions can be activated:
    – Live video from operator’s smartphone
    – Text messages (chat)
    – Attachments, diagrams, and maps
    – Guided questionnaire to assess incidents
  • Additional participants can join the session later, adding their video and location data.
