Empower Employees with an Incident Reporting App for Incident Tracking

Incident Reporting AppThose who have access to information have the power to make wise decisions. This is especially important in today’s world where there is a threat of violence in the workplace, at school, and in churches. In such an environment, communication can save lives. We recommend your business or organization install the Alert-Com incident reporting app system for real-time communication.

Use the app to communicate with emergency management and your workers about safety threats, whether from nature or people. This app follows the intent of Alyssa’s Law, which allows for immediate notification to law enforcement and employees in a dangerous situation.

 

Reporting’s Role in Prevention

As communication is done by smartphone with the Alert-Com incident reporting app, an accurate record is maintained of the dangerous situation. This makes it easy to track incidents and look into these situations minute by minute. With this capability, your business or organization can go over the event and look for opportunities to improve its security policies and measures. This results in a win-win situation for all involved.

 

More importantly, it provides a means for those involved to take immediate action to protect students, employees, or worshipers through the spread of accurate information.

Be Prepared — Plan for the Worst with Threat Response Training

Threat Response PlanningWhen the forecast calls for rain, you take an umbrella with you. It’s just being prepared for the possibilities. On a larger scale, it’s wise to be ready for potential threats when it involves you or your family. We live in a world where we have seen senseless violence take lives in numbers large and small, which is why it’s wise to consider threat response solutions before dangerous situations arise.

 

There are several different ways you can prepare, depending on your focus. For instance, you may want to be able to safeguard yourself against danger. In that case, you may wish to take courses in:

Firearm Safety — Instructors teach staff how to use and carry guns lawfully.

Self-Defense — You learn how to respond in a dangerous situation.

Building Assessment — Ensure your facility is to code per our accredited homeland security assessment plans.

 

The Safety of Students, Employees, & Customers

In another scenario involving threat response solutions, your attention may be on the safety of those in your employment, whether a school, business, or government agency. An example would be an active shooter situation.

 

With a smartphone alert system, like ALERT-COM communication in real-time saves lives. This type of app connects you to employees and lets them know what is happening and what action should be taken. You’ll feel more confident after you have taken sound measures to protect and inform those under your care.
