Mass Notification Systems
Mass Notification Systems (a.k.a Emergency Communication Systems) provide real-time information to all building occupants or personnel in the immediate vicinity of a building during emergency situations.
All Department Defence (DOD) components are required to provide mass notification capability. This UFC (Unified Facilities Criteria) was developed by collecting and refining criteria from DOD antiterrorism guidance, examining previous mass notification system evaluation reports and reviewing the capabilities of representative, commercially available mass notification products.
The Gamewell – FCI Control Station provides a centralizes location for activating, controlling and monitoring all system equipment. The CS also has the ability to broadcast live public address, pre-recorded messages and siren tones. The software provides an extremely user friendly graphics based interface to display a detailed map of the county, facility, base or campus with color coded icons to visually indicate the location and the status of the sirens and remote units.
