Blerter partners with USA Triathlon to enhance participant safety
Blerter is pleased to announce a partnership with USA Triathlon, the National Governing Body for triathlon, duathlon, aquathlon, aquabike, winter triathlon, off-road triathlon and paratriathlon in the United States - helping streamline operations to enhance participant safety and overall event experience.
A core benefit that the partnership will bring includes keeping participants safe at the events with Blerter’s easy to use platform that enables event organizers to plan for the unexpected, while ensuring best in-class safety standards and quality control throughout an event. Additionally, two-way communication across the entire event crew will help to reduce response times to incidents of all types.
Quick and easy communication
Communicate and connect directly with your entire crew, whether or not they have a radio.
Everything in one place
Centralize communications, operations, and safety processes all on one platform.
Keep athletes safe
Deliver safer events by planning for the unexpected and reducing incident response times.
“The safety of athletes, spectators and volunteers is the highest priority at all USA Triathlon events. Blerter’s state-of-the-art platform will support USA Triathlon staff in safely executing our event plan, addressing incidents in real-time while keeping all necessary parties informed,” said Brian D’Amico, USA Triathlon Director of Events.
“In addition, streamlined communication will help us maximize the athlete experience as a whole, from aid stations to expo, as we recognize and respond to minor issues throughout race weekend. We look forward to working with Blerter to elevate our owned events, while promoting the platform to our community of multisport race directors.”
Blerter is looking forward to support the implementation of USA Triathlon's Safe Return to Multisport Initiative, as event organizers face the challenge of incorporating enhanced physical distancing, self-screening and sanitation protocols at their events.
