With summer around the corner, severe weather concerns heighten across the Mid-Atlantic as warmer weather from the south clashes with cooler temperatures that push down from the north. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Rising global average temperature is associated with widespread changes in weather patterns. Scientific studies indicate that extreme weather events such as heatwaves and large storms are likely to become more frequent or more intense with human-induced climate change.”
Emergency Mass Signaling Systems are the most effective way to warn the public of severe weather conditions by issuing a tone alert followed by a clear and powerful voice message, a three-step approach called A.I.D.™ – ALERT, INFORM and DIRECT from industry-leader Whelen Engineering. Since 1952 Whelen has been a global leader in emergency mass signaling, and continues to bring innovative new products and enhancements to their complete line of sirens, controllers and high-powered warning systems to help communities, schools and manufacturers eliminate confusion, restore order and, most importantly, save lives.
At Communications Electronics we design, install and maintain a full line of Emergency Mass Notification Systems from Whelen and other manufacturers to alert communities, students and employees of man-made or natural events such as tornadoes, flash floods, severe weather, campus safety issues or a chemical release. Our trained and certified engineers and field technicians have deployed life-saving systems for some of the area’s most prominent universities, enterprises and communities across the Mid-Atlantic.
As a leader of wireless voice, video and data solutions, Communications Electronics recognizes that it is imperative to reliably deliver the right information across multiple devices to quickly alert the right people to best protect residents and minimize the impact to individuals, structures and the environment in an emergency.
In addition, our Mission Critical-Internet of Things (MC-IoT) Early Warning Alerting Solutions from Motorola Solutions collect, analyze and share real-time information from mass notification and alert systems. With event-specific emergency communications sent to targeted audiences over the community’s ASTRO P25 radio network, communication and alerts are more effective. Motorola Solutions MC-IoT enables smarter, more efficient and more proactive communications to keep communities as safe as possible.
