The Importance of Emergency Call Systems
Most people will agree that every second in an emergency really counts. Take for example, any emergency that has to be responded to by the police especially when someone calls 911 for help. But what if the police do not know where the call has originated from especially if there is a complex network of buildings that stand in the way.
And this is where the enhanced 911 system that has been designed can play a major role in locating the area where emergency assistance is required, thanks to the designing of software that is able to provide this information in real-time.
Can you imagine the number of lives that can be saved if these emergency call systems are used to not to not only locate the area where the emergency has occurred but this sophisticated communications network can immediately notify policemen with this information so that they can arrive on the scene as soon as possible.
However, this is not only useful when it comes to an emergency involving one person as in some cases several people need to be notified. This is done by the use of mass notification systems that can send real time information to communication wireless devices, pagers and even email as well.
And while this seems a bit futuristic, these enhanced communication services has been devised and implemented in certain situations to promising results.
