  • Facilitates multiple community response. Assists responders unfamiliar with the facility needing access to accurate site information.
  • Improves interoperability communication between local safety officials and multiple jurisdictions responding to any emergency situation located within schools, hospitals, or any other facility or building.
  • Integral part of your EOP (Emergency Operations Plan) or other Crisis Management Plan.
  • Standardizes entry and exit procedures with unique color-coded room identifiers and symbols, making the system familiar to both building occupants and responders, no matter where the location.
  • Acts as a deterrent to those who see the facility is prepared for emergency situations.
  • Supports a) the four stages of Emergency Management: mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery…..and b) the emergency response “tripod’ – the three necessary elements of effective response: training, command/control, intelligence (SOS provides necessary intelligence).

  • Immediate accessibility of crucial information: floor plans, hazardous material locations, MSDS sheets, utility shutoffs, door swings, key boxes, surveillance cameras, digital photos, exterior features, etc.
  • Facilitates EOC (Emergency Operations Center) or ICS activities. Sharing of critical information from the command post is simplified for deployment of the responders.

  • Enhances safety of all involved in a crisis. For schools, that includes students, staff, and the emergency responders themselves.
  • Provides an overall navigational tool, including evacuation routes, shelter in place, etc.
