Making Cities Smarter One Building at a Time.

Public Safety Communication matters.

As Reported BY: Safer Buildings Coalition’s Website

“In-Building Communication When You Need It Most”
• There are over 5.6 million commercial buildings in the U.S
First Responders need to be able to talk inside, communicate to each other inside, and communicate outside
• Building Occupants need to be able text and call 911 from inside those buildings and receive mass notifications wherever they may be inside the building
Response Time is Critical: The FCC estimates that an improvement of one minute for 9-1-1 response time would save 10,000 lives in the US annually
A Survey of the International Association of Fire Chiefs reports that in a large percentage of buildings, critical communication can’t happen.
