Regardless of a company’s organizational structure, during an emergency the facility manager becomes president, founder and CEO of everyone in the building. It’s up to the facility manager to ensure the emergency plan is executed. This could include coordinating with first responders, directing building occupants, and shutting off utilities.

Picture this: A natural disaster hits. You need to search rolls of papers in a basement for the floor plans for the first responders. The damage a disaster causes is a direct result of how fast you can respond. Can you access your building information within 10 seconds?

Watch this webcast to see how mobile apps are rapidly changing the way we:

  • Access and maintain Life Safety Equipment
  • Respond to emergencies and mitigate damage
  • Manage building-level information for active shooter situations, bomb threats, fires, natural disasters
  • Stay current with Life Safety Codes, including fire system/sprinklers, fire safety policies and procedures, safe refuge areas, and evacuation policies and procedures
