BeSafe Technologies, Inc., is pleased to announce that it was awarded a contract with the Maine Educational Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and the Governor Baxter School for the Deaf (MECDHH/GBSD) to secure its nine building campus in Falmouth, Maine. The Software, Maintenance and Support contract provides for the installation and training necessary to provide a “School Emergency Response Floor Plan and Information System”, a computerized floor plan and emergency response information system that can be kept updated yearly as school layouts and information change. MECDHH/GBSD provides high quality, state of the art services to students who are deaf and hard of hearing, their families and learning communities statewide. The school will become part of, and have access to, BeSafe's secure web portal, which maintains up-to-date schematic building and floor plans and makes them available in electronic and printed binder form to school safety personnel and public safety officials, for use in managing a school-based emergency.

About BeSafe Technologies

BeSafe Technologies provides first responders with advanced information about a facility’s physical layout, surroundings and access points before arriving at a location, thus enabling responders to expedite their intervention. This includes aerial imagery and digital photographs of all facades, entrances and egresses, the location and description of hazardous materials and critical utility shut-offs. This allows first responders to know the exterior surroundings of the property, access routes, and a view of all entrance and escape points, as well as asset identification, enabling pre-planning of evacuation and response. The information is distributed electronically to emergency response agencies and is accessible from most police and other emergency vehicles. BeSafe’s systems are currently implemented in approximately 2,500 end user sites, including over 150 school districts and colleges across 10 states, and numerous hospitals, law enforcement agencies and municipal facilities.
