Shooter Detection Systems to Exhibit at the IAHSS 2019 Annual Conference & Exhibition
SDS brings active shooter solutions to healthcare security professionals at the International Association for Healthcare Security & Safety’s international conference in Orlando
Orlando, Florida – May 9, 2019 – Shooter Detection Systems (SDS), the security industry’s leading gunshot detection provider, will meet with Security, Emergency Management and Public Safety professionals from the Healthcare industry at the International Association for Healthcare Security & Safety (IAHSS) 2019 Annual Conference & Exhibition (AC&E) happening at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista in Orlando, Florida May 19 – 22, 2019.
While no business or organization is immune from violence, the rate of incidents against emergency medical and patient care staff is significantly higher than in the average workplace, leaving healthcare security professionals with a complex set of scenarios to consider when building emergency management strategies that minimize risk to their staff, patients and visitors. When it comes to shooter threats, what is universal in any facility including hospitals is a need for the situational awareness that a gunshot detection and reporting system can bring to internal security teams, building occupants, and those responding to the incident from outside.
Built from sniper detection technology used by the U.S. military in conflicts around the globe, Guardian combines proprietary acoustic gunshot detection algorithms and infrared sensors to detect gunshots in the indoor environment. Unique to the Guardian System, this dual-mode technology has been certified to detect 100% of gunshots and produces zero false alerts, as per extensive performance testing conducted by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure in the United Kingdom and other third-party authorities. When integrated with building security systems, Guardian instantly automates security actions such as pulling live video to the incident area, initiating lockdown or opening access areas for safe egress, activating alarms, strobes and PA announcements, and mass notifying staff and visitors with location-based emergency platforms.
As important as notifying building occupants is being able to communicate incident details with outside law enforcement, EMS, and other first responders in real-time. Mutualink, a worldwide leader in providing secure interoperable communications, will join SDS at IAHSS where together they will showcase how the Guardian/Mutualink integration instantly opens incident communications between police, fire, EMS and hospitals for coordinated response and triage during active shooter incidents.
