Rapid Responder: Why Everyone Needs It
Rapid Responder is an all hazards emergency response system that provides facilities and first responders’ instant access to site specific information. This information includes: floor plans, aerial views, site maps, hazardous material locations, utility shut off information, emergency and evacuation plans, and live camera feeds. Along with that, it can also be used to store and track facility maintenance, trainings, and reminders for things like drills or fire extinguisher refills. The list above is just a glimpse at how Rapid Responder aids in crisis management. Below you will find nine more reasons that everyone needs to deploy Rapid Responder in their facility.
