In a world with increasing critical crisis events and mass shootings, organizations must be prepared to mitigate and dissolve these threats at all times. Traditional emergency 911 calls use outdated technology and inefficient processes that prolong response times. With the fast-paced environment in which critical events occur, it is vital to have a streamlined and efficient solution ready to deploy instantly. With the goal of reducing risk and improving safety and security, Convergint partners with ASR Alert Systems to offer critical incident response technology solutions. 

ASR Alert Systems uses a direct approach to prepare organizations for critical crisis events. The critical incident response technology directly communicates with first responders and law enforcement, resulting in quicker response times. Together, Convergint works with ASR to ensure the safety of organizations’ staff, customers, and other personnel with decreased response times. 

Problem: Critical Incident Response Times

In the unfortunate age of active shooters, current emergency response processes are outdated and unable to handle the fluid nature of today’s physical security threats. Response times are prolonged and can lead to escalated safety and security issues. Lifesaving alert devices for situations where a facility is under attack are quickly becoming mandatory by law with the hopes of mitigating these issues.

Solution: ASR Alert Systems

This transformative technology reduces response times in critical events. It is customized to each individual end-user in all vertical markets, using an intuitive platform that is easy to install and integrate with current security systems. The ASR Alert System solution is:

  • Intuitive: Emergency notifications can be initiated by wall mounted buttons, mobile wearable pendants, and accessed using a mobile phone application.

  • Streamlined: Alerts go directly to law enforcement, not a 3rd party call center.

  • Precise: The ASR Alert System saves time by providing the exact location of the threat as well as floor plans, building schematics, aerial photographic views, and live camera feeds.

  • Reliable: The threat alert system utilizes text, push, and e-mail notifications, audible alarms, and visible strobes to notify end users and first responders of the threat or crisis event.

  • Cost Effective: ASR provides free consoles to law enforcement dispatch locations and Real Time Crime Centers (RTCC). This direct communication provides immediate situational awareness to dispatchers.

  • Integrated: ASR pairs with other security-related systems including video management systems, access control systems, and scrolling board platforms, as well as law enforcement RTCCs and 911 computer-automated dispatch software.

Results: Saving Time Saves Lives

By directly notifying first responders and law enforcement during a critical event, response times are decreased, personnel arrive to the scene faster, and those under attack receive help sooner. In accelerating mission critical events, saving time can save lives.
