Campus/Civil Evacuations through Mass Audio Visual Networked Notification
now possible through the Emergency E-Response from VoiceGate, a Division
of IgeaCare Systems Inc.
TORONTO, Jan. 22 /CNW/ - VoiceGate, a Division of IgeaCare Systems, Inc.,
unveils its much anticipated "Campus Alert" at IT Expo today in Miami,
Florida. Campus Alert is introduced as a module to the VoiceGate Emergency
e-Response mass message notification and emergency planning system. The
addition of the ability to seize every desktop and digital display within any
network and post and announce an alert will enable emergency planners to
manage evacuations and disseminate emergency instructions faster than by
calling or sending SMS messages in campus, educational and business settings.
"The genesis of the idea behind the Campus Alert module came to us by
analyzing the series of events that must take place when an emergency occurs
within any building or campus. The first people you need to alert, say, are
campus police; then you need to start the evacuation process by calling
everyone else on your contact list" - says Paul Perryman President of the
VoiceGate Division, further adding "By taking over the local area network, and
instantly pushing audio and visual alerts to the displays or digital signage
within any building or buildings, we would get the message out faster, with
less expense and more cost effective than by using ASP notification services;
making it a module on our e-Response platform made even more sense."
The Emergency e-Response is an Emergency Notification and Planning tool
built to Police and Military specifications and capable of supporting GIS
based automated notification campaigns. This feature is a critical component
when managing emergencies within large campus or business settings.
Geographically targeted computers; or, digital displays within a network can
now be selected within a mapped facility, enabling certain floors within a
building to receive specific; or, different messages than others.
The Emergency e-Response mass-message notification system is designed to
open industry standards and capable of delivering messages to thousands of
people simultaneously, on multiple devices: phone, cell phone, answering
machine, voice mail, fax, SMS, pager, any internet ready device - and now,
"bulk" networked display notification.
The GIS capability of our HIPPA and FERPA compliant Emergency e-response
mass message delivery system, coupled with the new Campus Alert functionality,
will enable security forces to visually instruct the residents of one area of
campus to "shelter in place" while others may receive notices or instructions
to better manage a planned, orderly evacuation.
