The SafePath system should be in every business with more than 20 employees. In an emergency situation it would be difficult and dangerous to make certain you notified everyone.

Unknown to the citizens of Wichita, Kansas a tornado was quickly approaching their area at 30 mph. Minutes before it struck, the city’s warning siren started blaring and informed the public of the nearing threat. This gave them time to reach safety and prevented any deaths or injuries. Telcom & Data is proud to provide a product that will increase safety in the workplace if a similar situation occurs. A Wheelock SAFEPATH® SP40S Emergency Evacuation System provides employees with the same type of warning that gave the citizens of Wichita, Kansas enough time to reach safety. Workers are best able to protect themselves once they are made aware of a threat.

The SafePath SP40S is a Multi-Function Emergency Voice Evacuation System that can tie into an existing fire alarm or act as a standalone evacuation system. The system uses audio and visual alerts to provide employees with evacuation information for different types of emergencies. Eight pre-recorded messages are included with the system and allows for custom messages to be recorded. A built in microphone gives the user the ability to broadcast instant messages though out the building.

There is no better time to bring an Emergency Evacuation System into an office or update an old system. The price of not having an effective Emergency Evacuation System is greater than the cost of purchasing one. If an evacuation situation does occur, the SafePath SP40S will decrease confusion and allow for a safe exit to safety.

When asked about emergency preparedness, Ricardo Trinidad, president of Telcom & Data said, "The SafePath system should be in every business with more than 20 employees. In an emergency situation it would be difficult and dangerous to make certain you notified everyone."
