When it comes to safety, campus environments are in a league of their own thanks to their unique threats and vulnerabilities. People, class- rooms, and administrative buildings aren’t the only entities in need of safeguarding – the extended physical environment, from dormitories and parking lots to sports facilities, also needs protection. A layered
safety solution encompassing fire alarm and detection, emergency communications,
security, and life safety systems offers the best approach to addressing multiple risks
like those found on campuses.
Tyco SimplexGrinnell, a premier building systems integrator and single-source
provider, can help your fire and life safety systems work together for optimal protection while also simplifying how you provide safety across your campus. An integrated
system can automate the entire chain of response to a fire or safety event from camera recordings to making contact with first responders. Emergency communications
options include voice-enabled alerts that warn users about fire conditions, episodes
of violence, severe weather, and other dangers. Integrate them with access control,
intrusion detection, video surveillance, and state-of-the-art mass notification systems
like text-message subscription services, text display boards, and outdoor speaker
systems for a complete, all-in-one network-based solution.
The result? A quality campus environment where students are engaged, faculty and
staff have peace of mind, and all learning environments are protected – all within
