With the Metis Secure system, public safety personnel can take emergency calls on the move, and can alert their sites from anywhere.
When a tornado warning was issued one recent evening for WPU’s county, the Director of Public Safety didn’t have to find someone on campus to alert students–he just logged into the browser-based Metis Secure Command Center from home. Seconds after sending an instant tornado alert, emergency voice instructions with sirens, flashing lights, and LCD text, were broadcasting throughout WPU’s campus.
Students in one building pressed the button on a Metis Secure Help Station, and an officer answered the call on his handheld radio. When they asked for more information, the officer confirmed the warning and told them where to seek shelter in their building.
With WPU’s Metis Secure emergency communications and notification system, public safety and security personnel can protect their students, faculty and staff from anywhere.
