Each year, in the United States alone, more than 100,000 schools experience over 150,000 serious crimes, along with natural disasters, fires, chemical spills and other emergencies. Integral to an overall preparedness plan, the REACT system dramatically improves response and outcomes in critical situations, providing instant notification and instructions to security personnel, faculty and students, law enforcement and other public safety agencies.
As the Virginia Tech tragedy demonstrated (the first shootings occurred at 7.15 a.m. but communications were not sent out until 9.30 a.m.), email is insufficient in fast-changing emergency situations. REACT's multi-modal communications system delivers real-time critical communications from wireless or wire-enabled cell phones, pagers, Blackberry devices, internal and external phone systems and computer desktops, hallway monitors, and classroom televisions, and other devices. The system provides instant, updatable evacuation maps and enhanced, ADA-compliant fire and emergency alerting. Coordinated crisis response enhances security and safety, improves compliance, and reduces liability.
A superior solution for both emergency and routine communications
The REACT system is ideal for delivering non-emergency, easily updated messages for staff, parents and students, eliminating the inconvenience, cost and clutter of paper information. Maps, cafeteria information, athletic schedules and more can be updated on screens throughout a building or across a campus. Whether in a k-12 environment or on a large university campus, REACT offers a comprehensive, modular, cost-effective communication solution.
