Protecting Your Most Important Asset
In every organization, the most important asset is the people that work there, and keeping them safe is a top priority. Technology is being leveraged in innovative ways to make people aware of life threatening situations and help efficiently manage a response.
Sending Assistance Where It’s Most Needed
This was the recent case at a nuclear power facility in Georgia when one of its personnel experienced a medical emergency. First responders needed to be called and directed to the area where the employee needed assistance. Given the size of the facility, this could prove challenging if the proper tools weren’t used.
However, the facility was able to utilize InformaCast, its emergency notification system to help the distressed employee. The Operations Duty Manager broadcast a message asking for assistance throughout the facility using InformaCast and Cisco phones. This immediately alerted first responders, one of whom was able to reach the employee in just a few minutes, with five others following close behind. They were able to assist the employee, who was sent to the hospital for further evaluation.
