FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – October 26, 2022 – Rave Mobile Safety, the trusted provider of technology solutions that enhance critical communications, increase resiliency, and improve safety, announced today that users of the company’s Rave Panic Button and Rave 911 Suite solutions can now significantly improve safety outcomes in facilities by uploading high quality, actionable floorplans generated by Critical Response Group (CRG). The new integration will further enhance safety efforts by giving 9-1-1 dispatchers, law enforcement, and first responders better situational awareness, which can help expedite response and improve safety outcomes.
The addition of Collaborative Response Graphics® within Rave’s 911 Suite and Panic Button improves 9-1-1 call taker and first responder situational awareness
Rave’s safety technology seamlessly integrates with CRG’s Collaborative Response Graphics®, which combine a gridded overlay with critical incident mapping data including high-resolution imagery, floor plans, site-specific labeling, and egress points. The new collaboration allows Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), safety agencies, and those charged with protecting people in public buildings and critical infrastructure facilities to access the most robust site information available. The integration of CRG’s visual communication data into Rave’s platforms helps to inform dispatchers and ensure that police, fire, and EMS arrive on scene ready to address the situation at hand, armed with the correct information.
“As a safety technology leader, it is incumbent upon Rave to facilitate synergies that help those on the front line to address emergency situations in the quickest and most effective manner possible,” said Rave CEO Todd Piett. “Integrating CRG’s standardized, site-specific common operating pictures into Rave Panic Button and Rave 911 Suite will allow 9-1-1 call takers and responders to have the relevant details and situational awareness needed to execute a swift response.”
Both Rave 911 Suite and Rave Panic Button call for the uploading of facility information so that 9-1-1 dispatchers and first responders have key insights about building and campus layouts from the outset. More than 10,000 schools and organizations across the U.S. utilize Rave Panic Button to instantly provide their local PSAPs, first responders, and emergency managers with critical information for emergency response. Even outside of the integration with Rave Panic Button, PSAPs leverage the capabilities of the Rave 911 Suite to better handle, dispatch, and respond to all types of emergencies through live video stream capabilities, a location chat feature, and access to georeferenced floor plans for greater visibility into the details of a building’s layout.
“Giving safety officials accurate and standardized visuals and other critical data during an emergency situation allows them to make informed decisions while under stress before they enter a building,” said Mike Rodgers, CEO of CRG. “Combining Collaborative Response Graphics with the data that already exists within Rave’s innovative solutions not only helps to expedite and inform emergency response, but increases safety for everyone involved – including the first responders.”
