Municipal & County Emergency Warning
Standard emergency warning systems sound sirens to alert of approaching danger, but are incapable of clear voice broadcasts containing critical information about the severity, location and duration of the situation and potentially lifesaving directions.
LRAD goes anywhere communication is needed.
From hand portable devices to larger systems temporarily or permanently mounted on trailers, vehicles, helicopters, poles and buildings, LRAD ONE VOICE® systems combine warning sirens with highly intelligible broadcasts to provide information and instructions during preparedness exercises and emergencies.
Unlike siren mass notification systems, LRAD ONE VOICE™ systems warn and communicate critical information to populations not receiving automated phone calls, emails, text messages, and other emergency notification measures by broadcasting warning sirens and clear and unambiguous voice messages over wind, traffic and background noise up to 12 sq. kilometers from a single installation.
LRAD provides a superior capability to communicate live or recorded multilingual messages for:
- Communicating instructions to relief volunteers during disasters and emergency preparedness exercises
- Conducting search & rescue operations
- Supervising cleanup efforts
- Quickly disseminating warnings and instructions over localized or large areas
LRAD minimizes the number of emergency personnel needed to conduct and supervise large volunteer efforts during disaster drills and in the aftermath of a catastrophe.
LRAD broadcasts facilitate safety and save lives during crisis situations including:
- Severe Weather, Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Fires & Flooding
- Fire / Explosive incidents
- CBRN / HAZMAT incidents
- Bomb / Active Shooter threats
- SWAT operations
- Area / Campus / Building lockdowns
- Large Freeway / Derailed Train Accident scenes
- Evacuation / Shelter-in-Place notifications
- Humanitarian / Disaster Relief
- Search & Rescue operations
- Incident Management Command
