LRAD® Corporation Announces Campus Safety and Communication Solutions Initiative
SAN DIEGO, CA – March 8, 2018 – LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world’s leading provider of long range voice communication systems, and advanced mass notification and distributed recipient solutions, today announced its initiative to address increasing campus safety threats.
“Active shooter incidents, campus safety threats, severe weather, and other crisis situations require next generation communication systems that broadcast audible voice messages with exceptional clarity and push location-based safety alerts to the mobile phones of students, staff, and faculty,” stated Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation. “LRAD’s campus safety initiative includes turnkey solutions comprised of the Company’s industry-leading voice communication systems and Genasys™ NEWS mass messaging software.”
“Genasys NEWS is LRAD’s fast and reliable solution for sending safety alerts to all mobile phones in an incident area,” continued Danforth. “NEWS alerts and notifications also automatically refresh to warn away individuals entering an active incident area.”
During active shooter and other campus safety incidents, LRAD communication systems:
- Initiate ‘Evacuate’ and ‘Shelter-in-place’ safety protocols
- Provide flexible communication coverage by broadcasting notifications and instructions to specific locations or campus-wide
- Broadcast messages and updates for the duration of the incident to inform, calm and reassure those affected
- Give on-scene commanders the capability to broadcast directions and instructions to first
responders simultaneously and quickly coordinate incident responses
- Communicate information and directions to family members, friends, and emergency responders rushing into an incident area
Danforth concluded, “LRAD systems are highly effective in communicating potentially lifesaving information before, during, and after campus safety threats.”
LRAD Corporation is revolutionizing mass notification with its leading distributed recipient mobile phone alert software and the industry’s most intelligible voice communication systems that are self-contained, self-powered and not dependent on external power and communication infrastructure.
