Advanced announces solutions to help you communicate effectively with your facilities and employees should a disaster strike
Mass notification systems or MNS will soon be required for commercial buildings across Canada – is your facility ready. A MNS system will improve the safety, confidence, and wellbeing of employees and patrons should an emergency arise by providing clear and concise information and instructions throughout a disaster. The system will aid in the execution of emergency plans, procedures, and communication protocols to everyone in the building or outdoor space, helping to maintain order and prevent injury or loss of life.
A MNS system will work in conjunction with existing PA system and will be able to communicate live or pre-recorded critical information. Advanced (www.advanced-inc.com) recommends that a MNS system should also include a form of distributing information to recipients which could include cell phones, SMS/text messaging, pagers, personal emails, hand held radios, instant messaging and/or computer pop-up messages.

- A PA/ Intercom system
- Life Safety System
- Fire voice system
- Network PC’s
- CCTV systems
- Flat panel or LED displays
- Phone systems
For wide area MNS systems, which consist of outdoor public spaces, Advanced recommends the following elements that should encompass the MNS system:
- Giant voice speaker systems
- Sirens and strobes
- Electronic signage
