Bridge from Paper Based Emergency Response Plans and Stand-alone Technologies to a Synchronized Orchestrated Response – SOR™
Customized Assessment, Integrated Technology Platform and Virtual Command Center Transform Crisis Plans and First Responder Emergency Operations to Mitigate Harm and Save Lives
Active shooter events and other forms of workplace, house of worship, and campus violence incidents are now a common occurrence in the United States. As a result, school administrators, religious leaders, and business owners must move toward more effective crisis preparation to limit damage and loss of life.
Too often today when a threat is detected, human panic and confusion occurs. It robs first responders access to accurate information and precious seconds to mitigate harm and save lives.
Synchronized Orchestrated Response (SOR™) increases threat response accuracy and timing through a combination of consultative assessment framework, a unifying platform to integrate disparate technologies, and a state-of-the-art virtual command center.
The moment SOR™ detects a threat, the planned lockdown protocol is activated, and authorities are notified with real-time actionable information that pinpoints the location of the threat, enabling the authorities to deploy resources to rapidly eliminate it.
SOR™ Components Include:
SOR Assess™. Critical to answering the all-important question, “Are we ready?” SOR Assess™ is a scalable, repeatable framework methodology to help organizations to determine risk profiles and capabilities to handle threats. A consultative, customized summary of findings delivers a prioritized development and opportunity roadmap to close gaps in emergency preparedness and to become “SOR™ ready”.
SOR Integrate™. Combines the SOR™ Platform with implementation services of ACG Solutions’ for threat response. With SOR Integrate™, stand-alone technologies are engineered to work together seamlessly to break down information barriers. The platform’s “plug and play” feature serves to optimize prior technology investments, such as cameras.
SOR Command™. Core to SOR™’s benefits, SOR Command™ brings all emergency response protocols and technologies into play with the essential communication layer. With SOR Command™, first responders gain a centralized point of access to multiple surveillance and detection devices, as well as situational awareness technologies from their iPad or smart phone. SOR Command™ brings to life the fulfillment of utilizing smart technologies and Collaborative Response Graphics™ to improve human response accuracy and timing.
SOR™’s Technology Features At-A-Glance
- Near instant first responder notification of gunshot. Patented, tri-factor gunshot detection (percussion, infrared and sound) to create near instant notification to law enforcement and building security that there is an active shooter incident. Designed to reduce human error and response time by as much as 5 minutes.
- Nationally recognized and adopted geospatially accurate graphics. Collaborative Response Graphics™ improve first responder situational awareness by transforming written and text-based information into high resolution building imagery that first responders can access via their smart devices or computers. First responders can visualize their physical location as compared to the threat area. This component also provides a common operating picture and language for all responding emergency agencies and field commanders.
- Unifying Technology Platform. SOR™’s Integrated Platform provides the ability to unify and utilize prior protect technology investments with new solutions to create a sound and holistic technology architecture to protect buildings and lives. It allows the right balance between optimal preparedness and budget considerations.
