Welcome to Breaking News Network (BNN), the only full-time, dedicated, incident notification system. Our news-gathering capability depends on our professionally staffed 24 hour news desk as well as member participation. Members include many public safety agencies and personnel, most major media outlets, news reporters and photographers, and commercial insurance professionals. The BNN service is available to your mobile device using our iPhone and Android Applications, or by our desktop visual news client, Webview. The service is also available via text message to non-smartphone users.
iPhone and Android Apps
Our advanced mobile app is now available to members for both Android and iPhone. This application lets you follow the action using live push notification. In addition to real-time incident alerts, you get location mapping, instant navigation, incident history, incident search, and images. Our application also enables members to send incidents, update incidents, and submit images from a scene.
Webview desktop visual news client
BNN uses a technologically advanced system called “Webview” to gather news and display incidents in real-time. Our members can use the system to monitor the latest alerts on our incident map, search incidents that have occurred in the past, or to send a new incident notification to the network.
Regional Incident Selector Tool
Our notification system allows you to receive just the alerts that interest you. Our Regional Incident Selector Tool (RIST) enables you to review your current subscriptions at a glance, or to edit your subscriptions with a few clicks. You can edit your subscriptions both geographically, and by incident type. Your alerts are always fully customizable.
Customer service is available Monday through Friday 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. We can reached at 888-875-6100 during business hours or by firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
