City of Los Angeles Air Support Division Selects PRISM SMS

Cincinnati, Ohio, July 11, 2012 – Professional Resources In System Management, LLC (PRISM) is pleased to welcome the Los Angeles Police Department, Fire Department and Aircraft Maintenance Department to the PRISM Safety Management System (SMS) program. The City of Los Angeles has signed a three-year contract with PRISM at the SMS Professional level. The PRISM Professional package includes access to its acclaimed Aviation Risk Management Online Resource (ARMOR). A web-based system, ARMOR allows operators to manage the activity within their SMS from any internet accessible location around the globe, 24 hours a day.

“With three different departments and 25 aircraft, we needed an SMS program that could easily be customized to fit our unique operating environments,” said Mark Bolanos LAPD Aviation Safety Officer. We found PRISM’s SMS program to be exactly what we needed to run a quality safety management program. PRISM utilizes 21st century tools that enable our team members to stay connected as they are performing their duties.”

Recognizing the challenges operators face when implementing and maintaining an SMS, PRISM provides a constructed pathway to ease the burden of compliance and improve the effectiveness of each flight operation. Recently, PRISM launched the first ever iPad Flight Risk Analysis Tool (FRAT) application to be integrated with a comprehensive SMS. The PRISM FRAT app is just one of the many tools PRISM offers to help promote a healthy and active safety culture.
“PRISM’s SMS solutions are not just for business aircraft operators; it is a program that can be scaled to fit any operation around the world whether they operate rotary wing, fixed wing, or air carriers,” said Steve Witowski, PRISM Vice President of Business Aviation Services. “It is great to have customers like the City of LA who understand the true value of SMS.”
