When seconds matter, make every single one count
NFPA 3000™ (PS): New Standard for Active Shooter / Hostile Event Response (ASHER) Program
As more hostile events occur, law enforcement, first responders, facility managers, and other officials must have information they need to effectively respond. This new standard identifies minimum program elements needed to:
- Organize, manage, and sustain ASHER program
- Reduce risks, effect, and impact on an organization from these events
We can partner with you to assist in understanding the NFPA 3000 standard for Active Shooter / Hostile Event Response Program. We can help you evaluate your specific needs around this new standard to protect your building occupants and coordinate an effective response in the event of an emergency situation.
Many of today’s facilities use a variety of systems to monitor and manage operations and emergency communications. These systems often cannot communicate with each other, and most require a high level of human interaction. In short, they increase the risk of human error and can delay response times. Managing too many disparate systems impedes your ability to respond effectively in an emergency.
Desigo Mass Notification is easy to use and able to reach them all, wherever they are, whatever they are doing, and provides the right information for an appropriate response.
Centralized command and control for effective emergency response
How can you help protect your people and business when disaster strikes?

Now you can quickly, reliably, and accurately get emergency and routine communications sent to and received by the right people, no matter where they are or what they are doing, with Desigo Mass Notification Solution. The Desigo platform lets you augment your current systems, leveraging your past and future infrastructure investments.

Siemens proved to be a true business partner in working with us to understand our concerns, to understand the issues we’re trying to address, to look at the day-to-day activity that happens on campus, and the technology that would integrate well.Jeff Cataldo Chief Financial Officer, Kent School
Creating the perfect place with innovative safety technology
Without a proper emergency mass notification solution, alerting people could waste critical response time, as incidents are unpredictable and standard methods of deployment generally require the use of many disparate systems.
Whether the rowing team is on the river or students are running the trails through the woods, getting critical emergency information to everyone on campus presents a significant challenge. But in northwestern Connecticut, Kent School officials have uncovered the solution: comprehensive mass notification. Learn more about how Kent School has implemented an effective mass notification solution that augments their current technologies and emergency preparedness program, creating peace of mind across campus.

Single button approach integrates all campus communication modalities to reach them all
An “easy button” approach lets you quickly and easily formulate effective responses. With configurable easy button commands, operators have a consistent, clear user interface to initiate outgoing messages with the push of a button. You can also receive step-by-step guidance to help ensure compliance with the company’s emergency response plan, letting you respond calmly and confidently, putting every second to good use. At Florida State University where weather varies and communication across campus is essential, this was the right approach.
