The recent domestic and international events have many people thinking about workplace safety and security. An essential element of an emergency push button is to get responders notified and responding as soon as possible. This quick notification lowers the possibility of injury to you and your staff. It is always recommended to call 911 as soon as possible. However, picking up the phone may not always be an option. An emergency push button is a simple and cost-effective solution that can significantly strengthen the response to any threat.
How does an Emergency Push Button Work?
The click of a computer mouse or an optional hardware button from any computer running CRS Notify program instantly alerts multiple people and responders using several communication channels. By default, CRS Notify can raise either level alert via computer mouse from the tray icon of the workstation. Our computer-based emergency push button system has centralized communication with adjustable alert levels.
When you want to alert your responders and not the creepers, the alert room can be resized and muted for an inconspicuous silent alarm. You can set alerts to a specific color to ensure simplicity for all users. Opens a centralized, real-time communication channel to keep everyone updated until the situation has been handled. Each user is shown by their name and location throughout the situation. Text and email recipients also get follow-up notifications on any communication.
A unique feature of CRS Notify is that you can connect multiple buildings together in the event of an emergency. Connect multiple buildings on the same campus, multiple locations in the same area, or even multiple offices across the globe. All of your offices can connect back to one centralized point so you know immediately if a high alert was raised at any one of your facilities around the world! CRS Notify allows you to then communicate with those facilities to send and receive real-time updates via the alert room on the situation.
Being proactive now can substantially lower the chances of a tragedy within your facility. However, don’t rely on technology alone to protect your employees. Give your staff the knowledge and the tools needed to react responsibly in a dangerous situation. There is no independent, foolproof way to handle any given crisis. Although the most compelling evidence points to taking advantage of all resources that are available to you. An emergency push button is the way to go when designing your safety and security initiatives.
