Alertus Airport & Transportation Solutions
Airports Face Emergency Notification Challenges
Airports face numerous, significant obstacles in communicating to its entire facility if an emergency occurs. Multiple terminals, each consisting of airport employees and storefront tenants, make for a potentially large group and geographic area to cover in the event of an emergency. A high volume of travelers and airport visitors make maintaining a comprehensive database of contacts nearly impossible. Not all airport occupants can be accounted for, as there is no easy way to register travelers, family, friends, and employees who are at the airport on any given day.
These challenges have left Airports with few options to notify everyone during an emergency. With the Alertus System, airports can now reliably and consistently reach a large population across an expansive footprint using technologies and infrastructure airports already have.
Alertus Technologies Offers a Solution
Alertus Technologies recognizes that airports face a unique set of challenges when trying to communicate with travelers, visitors, landside/airside airport employees, and contract workers during a disaster event. Alertus offers a unique solution that includes products that solve these issues and ultimately save lives in any emergency:
Many airports use digital signage and cable TV systems to transmit communications in public and high-occupancy areas such as waiting areas, entry points, and throughout terminals. Alertus’ solutions transform these devices into intelligent emergency alerting appliances, and when activated, emergency alerts scroll across digital signage and can be easily read from a distance.
With the Alertus System, airports can transform digital displays (such as flight information display systems) into effective alerting endpoints that are part of a complete, integrated emergency communications system.
Alertus Desktop instantaneously flashes full- or partial-screen pop-up alerts on all or select PC and Mac desktop computers. Desktop notification can customize the reach to either all or select devices in the event of an emergency. Full-screen alerts instantly grab the user's attention and deliver scenario-specific, preset, or custom messages.
Desktop notification is just once piece of the solution using net-centric enterprise alerting. You can display alerts on digital signage, interrupt cable televisions, trigger VoIP or IP phones, and send notifications over in-building public address speakers and outdoor giant voice systems.
The Alertus Activator App allows users to quickly activate the Alertus System via Android or iOS tablets or smart phones. Launching an alert via the app activates notification alerts to all integrated products.
Individuals who download the Alertus Recipient App can receive push notifications and quickly send geo-targeted incident reports to emergency management personnel.
