Chicago (PRWEB) October 14, 2009
Lincoln Property Company, one of the nation's largest property management firms with offices internationally, announced they have installed RealView's CommandScope™ Electronic Fire Emergency Pre-Plan program at the new Private Bank Headquarters building located at 120 South LaSalle Street. CommandScope includes all of the life/safety information required by first responders - fire and police - in the event of an incident.
CommandScope is installed in the management office and on a touch-screen computer at the security desk in the lobby. The program provides building construction details, evacuation plans, contact information, location of tenants with disabilities, floor plans for every floor, fire protection details, building photos, fire hydrant locations and much more. CommandScope is intuitive to use, easy to navigate, and is available 24-7.
"CommandScope brings together all the critical emergency response information necessary to manage an incident from a Lincoln command center, either on-site or remotely," said Robert Quast, Lincoln Property Company's Vice President of Property Management. "The system also provides our emergency response teams with the capacity to initiate and manage business continuity efforts to keep our tenants in business and minimize the cost of restoration to our clients."
The staff at Lincoln Property is able to effortlessly manage and update data in CommandScope for first responders and off-site Lincoln support teams who need to access and digest information immediately in an emergency situation. This is one of the most valuable features for Lincoln Property.
According to Quast, "For first responders and off-site managers who are not immediately familiar with the building, being able to find detailed, specific and accurate information is as easy as navigating a touch-screen building directory and can save crucial minutes in an emergency situation."
In addition to having data available on touch screen computers in the building, data is available to first responders on their vehicle computers even without an Internet connection. CommandScope's smart client architecture can also provide interoperability to mutual aid responders and police departments. Updating information is simple so plans are always current in case of an emergency, an important feature that is in line with today's Homeland Security policies and recommendations.
CommandScope is used for pre-planning facilities all across the country. Most recently, Loyola University became first university in the U.S. to use CommandScope to implement a fully electronic pre-plan to help lessen property damage and prevent loss of lives as a result of campus fires. Loyola has pre-plans of more than 70 buildings on multiple campuses with CommandScope, increasing the safety of its more than 15,000 students.
Property owners and managers, fire departments, universities, hotels and long-term assisted living facilities are benefiting from easy access to standardized electronic pre-plans. From North Charleston to North Aurora, thousands of buildings have improved their safety, compliance and achieved accreditation.
