Genesis Adds Lockdown Code Functionality to GenAlert E911 Solution

by Nathan September 10, 2015

Genesis Systems, working with a number of school boards and health authorities, has added functionality to our GenAlert E911 real-time notification package for additional non-emergency alerting. Users are now able to use our solution to generate other types of non-emergency alerts that may not be generated by making a 9-1-1 call.

This functionality is currently being implemented into a number of hospitals and schools to generate building lock-down alerts (using special codes) notifying staff of events such as missing patients / students or dangerous persons on the premises. Having a Real-time alerting (E911) solution is important for staff safety, but there are still important alerts that need to be delivered quickly that do not require a call to 9-1-1.
