Identifying potential dangers is one thing – but during events, a reliable alarm transmission is crucial. Our systems are based on two principal approaches:
Wherever transportation routes and human beings are threatened by natural hazards, the time available for evacuations or the application of protective measures is usually short. That’s why we always use alerting systems that function completely independent of our data servers. Sometimes tethered alarm transmissions are possible, in other situations wireless radio transmissions have to be used, but they are completely autonomic in all cases.
Alerting local authorities
Notifying local authorities is usually a high priority. Decisions have to be made, protective measures need to be initiated in order to keep further damage to a minimum. In cooperation with Swisscom, we offer automatic issuing of prioritized alarm-SMS where coverage is available. Alarm recipients need to confirm the incoming warning, otherwise the alarm is automatically distributed on other channels (e.g. a phone call, pager, PolyCom, community alarm sirens). Additionally, you can immediately initiate a telephone conference with all the involved authorities and decision makers.
