"BeSafe® presents all the information that a first-responder needs about a building in a very clear, straight-forward and logical way."Paul Szymanski, Assistant Superintendent, Andover Public Schools, Andover, MA

BeSafe Technologies, Inc., is pleased to announce that it has been awarded several contracts with colleges in New England to secure their campuses and develop evacuation plans for their facilities. For the schools new to the BeSafe Community, this will begin with implementation of the “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. BeSafe's secure web portal will house and maintain the colleges' schematic building and floor plans and make them available to school safety personnel and public safety officials, for use in managing a school-based emergency.
For the colleges that are currently BeSafe clients, evacuation plans will be developed, posted in the buildings and kept updated to assist students, staff, and visitors to escape the building in case of fire or other emergency. They will be housed in the colleges' BeSafe Portal environments and made available to the police and fire departments in the towns where the campuses reside.
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.
