In today’s society, being able to immediately communicate to the masses is of paramount importance. When an emergency arises, mass notification allows for communication to be shared over numerous technologies. Mass notification is important to alert the public of impending threats and to react to them in an organized and efficient manner. The goal of mass notification is to effectively mitigate risks should they occur.
Features of these systems can include:
- Compartmentalizing information so various areas can have a different set of directions to follow, (i.e.: one area to evacuate while another area is locked down),
- Advising individuals not to proceed to a certain area,
- Sending notices or messages to beacons and desktops located throughout the building.
CONTAVA can assist to prepare your facility to be ready to communicate a lockdown or evacuation should the need arise.
