Advantages of Integrating Fire Alarm, Security, and Life Safety Systems
There are many advantages to integrating a school’s fire, security and life safety systems. Above all, an integrated fire and security system can expedite the handling of the emergency situation. With an integrated system, students and teachers can be alerted more quickly to an emergency situation and be able to respond accordingly. Responding authorities can receive more critical information regarding the emergency situation and react strategically.
The fire and security integration can also help school administrators by providing an easier to use interface that can save time and money for the school. Communication across all levels and for all situations can be quickly enacted to reach all intended audiences in the school. With the integration of an emergency communication system, further information and alerts can be communicated outside the school via text messaging, email, voice messaging, and outdoor speaker systems. A well-engineered and designed integrated system can empower and enhance a school’s safety and security.
The biggest benefits to integrating your fire, security and emergency communication systems are:
- Cost Savings – Have one fire and security company handle all the inspections and maintenance. With the integration of all systems, maintenance and inspections are much more efficient and cost effective.
- Ease of Use – Operating one integrated system is more convenient and easier than managing multiple separate systems. By having access to all systems, faculty can utilize the numerous tools available to better handle situations.
- Quicker Response Time – With an integrated system, there are fewer false alarms as a result of being able to confirm situations through the use of multiple tools. Authorities can also be better prepared to handle the emergency situation.
- Enhanced Safety & Security – Every system that is integrated is further enhanced by providing new tools and capabilities that they didn’t have prior to the integration. In the event of a fire alarm, the communication system can be used to verify a potential fire while exit doors can be automatically unlocked to allow students to exit and first responders to enter.
