In emergency situations it is vital that communication be clear and immediately accessible to all involved. Loud speakers can become muffled and may not be appropriate to use in every situation.
Hearing assistive streaming devices are an effective and useful alternate solution for efficient communication. In the event of an emergency, a communication system that streams audio over wifi can reach everyone in harm’s way through their smartphone via WiFi. A password protected WiFi network can provide secure communications.
Following are five venues that could benefit from using a wireless audio streaming system in the event of an emergency:
An office fire can quickly spread claiming multiple lives especially in a multi-level unit. Your office’s emergency coordinator can use a Personal PA System over WiFi to stream emergency instructions to employees on multiple floors. An added benefit is that this same system can provide multiple music channels to your team in order to increase their productivity.
Schools and College Campuses
Nobody wants to think about this kind of situation, but they’re in the headlines too often these days. A portable PA System that streams over wifi can provide teachers with a myriad of creative ways to take lessons out of the classroom, but it can also discreetly communicate emergency instructions to faculty, staff and students.
Warehouses and Factories
You may already be using a streaming solution to provide your team with music and other entertainment during work hours. This technology can also be used to make widespread announcements during an emergency, allowing your workforce to mobilize quickly and efficiently.
Hotels and Resorts
Extreme weather situations can ruin a vacation. A streaming solutions that can send instructions to your staff’s and guest’s smartphones, can help provide an excellent level of service to guests, despite the conditions outside.
In enclosed malls it can be easy to become disoriented when trying to escape an emergency situation. Plus, when you have masses of people in one space, it is vital to offer clear and accessible information and instructions. An audio streaming solution can broadcast directly to employee’s smartphones, providing them with instructions to help guide other staff and shoppers.
No matter the venue, with an audio streaming solution in place there’s one more tool at hand to make one-way communication clear and efficient for all involved. Communication is direct and widespread and the fear of unclear, unheard messages are no longer an issue when people can receive communication directly to their phone or tablet. In the case of an emergency consider a plan that includes a broadcast system that you can rely on and trust.
