OAKVILLE, Ontario, Aug. 22, 2017 /CNW/ — Emergency Response Management Services Corp (ERMS), a SaaS (software-as-a-service)-based emergency notification system provider based in Ontario, Canada, today announced it has been acquired by Rave Mobile Safety (Rave), provider of critical communication and data platform solutions trusted to save lives.
