The Importance of Incident Reporting Technology like Alert-Com System Solutions
You can’t put a value on human life; it’s too precious. That’s why if you operate a school, business, church, or other similar institution, you need to be prepared in case of a threat or incident. That is where the Alert-Com system solutions we offer at Hedge Tactical Solutions show their true worth. They help keep people safe.
This product is born out of tragedy. The horrible loss of life in shootings such as those at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, and at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newton, CT, drove the creation of the Alert-Com system.
It was apparent in the aftermath of these killings, and others, that a way to quickly and widely distribute safety information would go a long way toward helping people and securing a situation. Time is of the essence during deadly incidents, and a system for alerting all those involved, including potential victims and first-responders, is a way to mitigate the impact.
This alert system complies with Alyssa’s Law, which was named after Parkland shooting victim Alyssa Alhadeff. The law requires public schools to install panic buttons to silently alert law enforcement agencies of life-threatening situations or emergencies. This law is currently enacted in New Jersey and Florida.
It’s a shame that it takes tragedies to put laws such as this one into place, but it’s a step in the right direction. And using alerting systems is a simple and effective way to keep your people safe.
