The ability of a business to respond to emergencies and time-sensitive situations quickly and effectively is key to continuity, employee and customer safety, corporate brand, legal coverage and revenue protection. Business-critical situations extend beyond natural disasters and criminal acts to encompass communications failures, civil disturbances, computer virus outbreak, supply chain mishap and other issues.
REACT is integral to business planning, enabling companies to inform and direct corporate personnel and outside responders in real time to protect life and property while improving employee safety and productivity. The system is also a convenient training and compliance resource that integrates easily with existing communications. REACT makes it simple to convey:
- emergency communication and preparedness
- evacuation and lock-down notices and directions
- business hours and promotional messages
- ADA-compliant visual and audio notifications
- IT alerts for viruses, server maintenance and estimated recovery times
- sales staff communication and promotional product information
- ergonomics and injury avoidance guidelines
High Rise Buildings
Emergencies in high-rise structures present unique planning and response challenges. Fire and terrorist attack are two catastrophic scenarios that came together tragically on September 11, 2001. The lack of an effective emergency response and notification system among first responders, administration, and employees at that time cost many lives. Multiple floors mean that large numbers of people must traverse great vertical distances through dark, smoky or unstable areas. REACT can launch multi-lingual instructions via all types of handheld wireless devices that enable real-time, reliable communication among first responders, building inhabitants and their families, and public safety agencies-speeding evacuation and providing detailed instruction as situations change moment by moment.
