How Emergency Notification Systems Work
- Designated personnel can issue an emergency alert to notify responders of conditions in real time while communicating status via color-coded alert levels.
- Occupants within a facility can report status at their specific location enabling responders to view detailed facility maps on a room-by-room basis.
- The color-coded conditions update in real time as the situation evolves.
- Two-way chat enables occupants and first responders to exchange detailed information or instructions.
Emergency Notification in a School
In a typical implementation in a school, teachers, staff and the local police department may all have access to the system. Teachers sign in at the beginning of the school day and label their room "green", indicating it is safe. As they move between classes, they again sign in and follow the same procedure, enabling the front office to know the location of faculty and the situation at all times.
