BluePoint releases rapid emergency response system
According to the company the system will allow quicker response times of emergency personnel to situations occurring in a building. The system operates similarly to a standard fire alarm and would inform both emergency response teams and inhabitants to the building of a situation.
"BluePoint is dedicated and focused on reducing response times for law enforcement and medical first responders through our first-to-market system that is being adopted heavily within the education sector," BluePoint's co-founder and CMO, John Shales siad. "Because response time matters as much for medical emergencies as it does for armed intruder events, more organizations are looking at solutions that protect people in a medical emergency with the same vigilance as they are protected in a police emergency."
The system uses a dedicated wireless network that is not connected with other wireless services in order to focus on emergency communication. The system also able to inform response teams where the system was activated through which pull terminal or wearable mobile alert device was activated. For larger complexes and buildings with multiple points of entry a strobe light is activated to indicate the closest entrance to the incident.
"Many industry studies show that shortened response times for medical emergencies not only result in better medical outcomes, but lower costs for organizations that take measures to ensure first responders are quickly alerted in times of need," John McNutt, co-founder and CEO for BluePoint, said.
