Mass Notifcation and Emergency Communications (MNEC)

Today all business and building operators have a responsibility and obligation to protect employees and visitors in the event of an emergency.  The need to communicate effectively to reach 100% of the occupants and deliver clear audio and visual instructions is essential. 

With modern multimedia working environments the communication methods are diverse and improved to expand on the existing public address systems.  By employing various communications tools including digital signage, audio speakers, text, email, voice over IP and smartphones the ability to reach all occupants is vastly improved.

The National Building Code requires all alarm systems to provide an adequate level of audible and message intelligibility to ensure clear direction is heard and understood.  Broadcast at levels of 15dB above ambient noise to ensure occupants can clearly hear the message.

To clearly and concisely reach all areas of a building, campus or site in the event of the following:

Catastrophic events
Weather pattern emergencies
Acts of terrorism
Chemical spills
Bio hazards
