Industry Weapon Yields Campus Safety With Mass Notification System

Digital Signage Acts as MNS for Educational Institutions

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - September 03, 2014) - Industry Weapon, experts in digital signage and media management, aids in safety and security communication for educational institutions. The company's mass notification solution, the Alert Integration, quickly alerts the entire site in the event of an emergency.

Emergencies happen quickly, and for schools, communicating to the masses under a time constraint is a challenging task. Certain events deny responsible parties the ability to access intercoms, yet digital signage solutions act as a visual communicator that reaches the entire campus.

"Digital signage communicates quickly and more effectively across entire districts. In a serious, time constrained event, the alert messages will be transmitted onto the digital signs without anyone having to initiate the process. It frees up that time it would take to traditionally communicate at a mass level, and in an emergency every second is valuable."
- Marcy Long, Director of Production, Industry Weapon

Industry Weapon's Alert Integration connects with software like E2Campus, Simplex Grinnell, and Blackboard for immediate emergency messaging notifications. During a safety breach, inclement weather, fire, etc., the digital signage automatically displays an emergency warning until the emergency has passed.

The regular abilities of the deployment help schools prepare and augment the four steps of crisis management. By allowing institutions to display contact information for campus safety, post tips for preventing damage and risks, and locate first aid kits and emergency exits, the signs are an integral part in prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery.

The Clery Act requires all colleges and universities to disclose information about crimes committed on or near campuses. While Industry Weapon's solution automatically discloses the information from the event to the proper parties, ensuring compliancy.

For K-12 institutions, mass notification systems are a key component in district safety. Time is valuable when the safety of students and faculty is undermined. Industry Weapon's digital signage solution buys supervising parties time by streamlining communication to the entire campus, allowing these members to continue onto their next planned step in crisis management.
