The Benefits of Emergency Communications Systems

When an emergency happens on a campus or at a large facility, the majority of lives are saved because of a streamlined emergency communications system.

What are Emergency Communications Systems?

Emergency Communications Systems (ECS) were originally called Mass Notification Systems. Emergency Communications Systems are not only fire alarm systems but also used as high-level notification systems. ECS is designed to give real time information and warning to campuses and large facilities.


Emergency Communications Systems can alert the public of not only fire emergencies but also emergency circumstances such as terrorist attacks and weather emergencies.


What are the benefits of Emergency Communications Systems?


Emergency Communications Systems offer campuses and large facilities user-friendly emergency alerts through voice, text messages, emails and even desktop alerts. Having multiple platforms for alerts save lives because the public has the opportunity to receive instant emergency alerts.


The instant alerts and communication are highly effective for crisis management because the emergency notifications speed up emergency team response while maintaining reliability of the Emergency Communications Systems. The emergency notifications are very concise as the emergency messages can include emergency routes and images.


Having unified communication systems at campuses and large facilities will give you peace of mind that your emergency alerts have mass reach in real time. This will improve your campus security or enhance your facility high security measurements without violating regulatory compliance.
