The quicker word spreads about a natural or manmade disaster, the safer your building occupants will be. Voice intelligibility is of utmost importance, as is having multiple layers of mass notification available (voice, e-mail, text, video, PC screens, digital public displays, etc.). System design that layers multiple systems will offer you the best coverage.
CEC can establish a mass notification system that sends targeted and automated alerts, instructions, and advisories that are activated by integrated security, fire, and/or access control systems.
If you’re responsible for an educational institution, we’ll also make sure you comply with the Jeanne Clery Act that went into effect in July 2010; it mandates that you document the procedures you’re using to communicate with your campus during an emergency.
