Public safety has always been a major domestic and global concern, but never more so than in today's post 9/11 world. Severe threats spanning terrorist attacks, epidemics, weather emergencies, earthquakes, toxic spills and more pose monumental challenges to public agencies charged with avoiding casualties and minimizing disruption.
Gathering places such as government buildings, parks, amphitheatres, fairgrounds, sports venues, places of worship, and national monuments are part of the national fabric of society. Public safety agencies must interface with countless private security organizations to notify those at risk, then coordinate and carry out effective response.
Only REACT provides the robust, scalable technology to meet this public trust. The REACT system's tightly integrated and secure multi-modal capabilities are ideal for managing emergency communications and response at mass public venues. REACT enables unified interaction among public safety and internal security personnel, as well clear, relevant notifications and instructions for crowd control via public display and address systems. This comprehensive, cost-effective enterprise-wide solution can minimize loss of life or injury by integrating smoothly with building security and automation systems.
Federal safety agencies such as FEMA rely on rapid, accurate communications to carry out their missions. To support them in their roles, the REACT system enables secure notification, coordination of emergency activities such as evacuations, and instantaneous communication throughout the emergency response chain. REACT's standards-based technology, multi-modal channels of contact, ease of configuration with existing safety networks and targeted notifications support federal emergency activities, helping them deliver important information to other agencies and to the public.
State agencies such as fish and game, parks and recreation, youth services and correctional institutions have an urgent need for reliable Critical Response Notification Systems. From acquiring intelligence in a prison hostage situation, to briefing emergency personnel during a forest fire-REACT is a vital communications tool, as well as a resource for routine informative and instructional activities. As a comprehensive CRNS solution, REACT lets administrators conduct instant notification, target and update instructions, and coordinate all aspects of the emergency response chain to protect lives and improve critical outcomes.
Police, sheriffs, fire departments, and other first responders are entrusted with protecting the safety and security of vulnerable people during emergencies. For these agencies, REACT is an essential tool for receiving and sending vital information to those in need. REACT enables instant, multi-lingual, secure and accurate alerts, instructions, advisories and updates to be delivered to those at risk. These notifications can be launched from desktops, telephones, wireless devices, and/or triggered through integration with leading security systems for a comprehensive Critical Response performance (CRP) solution.
During severe emergencies that exceed the capabilities of state and local resources, the National Guard, Army Corps of Engineers or other military agencies may be summoned to a U.S. domestic crisis. In situations where conventional communications may be damaged or unreliable, REACT provides robust security and multiple channels of communication spanning voice, fax, email, wireless, SMS, IM, video, public displays and PCs. It can help military personnel instantly and continuously update large crowds or those isolated in remote areas; conduct evacuations, disseminate vital information and carry out control and containment activities to protect lives, mitigate damage, and maintain or restore order.
