New standards for emergency communications detailed in 2010 NFPA 72 are expected to bring new business opportunities for fire installers, physical security integrators and other contractors that have the proficiency to install appliances used in mass notification systems (MNS).
In regard to "Advances Help Eclipse Fire Fatalities" (see SSI's annual Fire Market Report, May 2010), as a contractor that has participated in four recent projects utilizing mass notification systems (MNS) I find one disturbing fact: COST.
Recent public tragedies have often led to the lament, "If only there had been some way to warn people." New alerting technologies and systems are answering that need in a major way. Find out what you must know to tap into this growing market.
The need for accurate, timely info has always been a problem, but recently civilian and government authorities decided it was time to do something about it.
Mass notification was the most notable trend in the fire/life safety industry in 2009, according to SSI’s 2009 Fire Market Report. The report delves into MNS technologies and codes, and also takes a look at sprinkler monitoring, video fire detection and multiple-sensor fire detection.
Mass notification, a relatively new development in life safety, can be defined as "a technology that provides real-time information to groups of individuals within large buildings, campus settings, geographic regions, or entire nations."
