Our customers demanded a dependable notification system to complement the Emergency Action Plans we developed for them and Workspeed is the logical partner for us

Are you prepared for any emergency that occurs on your property? Can you instantly notify all property occupants about emergency occurrences and procedures? These are just a couple of topics that Workspeed, the leader in intelligent real-estate management solutions, and Global Security Group, (GSG) a world-renowned emergency preparedness organization, are joining forces to discuss as they inform and educate property owners, managers and employers on the need for emergency preparedness. The Get Emergency Ready Webinar is the first initiative in a series of upcoming outreach the companies are planning to ensure you’re responsible for your people and prepared to handle crisis situations effectively.

"An Emergency Preparedness strategy is critical for our clients who own, operate and take residence in many of the nation’s most prominent buildings. By coupling our comprehensive, easy-to-use notification system, Workspeed Notify, with a knowledge-based Emergency Action Plan from Global Security Group, our clients are armed for all unforeseen events,” said, Derrick Chen, chief operating officer at Workspeed.

With disasters, terrorism and severe weather at an all time high, educating and informing property personnel about the importance of emergency preparedness is the primary goal of this partnership. Having a simple broadcast system is no longer sufficient. Property owners, managers and employers must be able to account for their office and building occupant’s whereabouts and well being in order to avoid potential liability. The Get Emergency Ready Webinar will offer participants an introduction to emergency best practices and readiness.

“Our customers demanded a dependable notification system to complement the Emergency Action Plans we developed for them and Workspeed is the logical partner for us,” said Mark J. Novak, president of Global Security Group. “Through this joint webinar we hope to drive awareness to emergency preparedness and the liabilities they face without an appropriate strategy.”

The Get Emergency Webinar will be held today, Thursday, March 25, 2010 at 2:00 PM EDT.

During the webinar Workspeed and Global Security Group will cover:

  •     The importance of emergency preparedness
  •     Communication considerations
  •     Potential liability issues you can avoid with a proper strategy
  •     Customer experience share with an inside look at an effective Emergency Action Plan
