Herkimer County Community College also
Chooses a Whelen®
Mid-State Communications provided a Whelen
Engineering solution to boost their campus alerting systems.
quote from their
"Herkimer County Community College considers communication during an
emergency situation an important part of its overall Crisis Plan.
Currently HCCC uses several ways to communicate with students, faculty and
staff; including email, NY-Alert, College Web Site, and now an emergency
siren located on the top of the Physical Education Building."
Email and phone dialing systems are an important
part of any campus safety program but it must be remembered that these
methods take valuable time to propagate through to the recipient. In a
crisis, minutes can prove disastrous, speed is critical and a Whelen Campus
Safety system can be activated and heard and seen in a matter of seconds
Hamilton College improves campus safety
with a Whelen®
Outdoor Warning System
Mid-State Communications designed a Whelen®
Outdoor Warning Siren System consisting of 3 WPS2902 voice and tone units. This
system provides outdoor coverage of their 350 acre campus.
The system was designed to be activated from a
fixed location or, in the event that location is impractical to use during
an emergency, from a mobile controller. The control system includes two-way
diagnostic feedback and WHELEN’s Si-Test feature, which allows Hamilton
College to silently test the system without disturbing the campus or having
to visit each site.
“The outdoor warning system is just one part of our multi-layered campus
emergency notification plan,” said Director of Campus Safety Fran Manfredo,
“and we are extremely satisfied with the final product. Obviously, no one
wants to think about having to use any type of emergency notification
system, but Hamilton has taken the necessary steps to protect our students,
faculty and guests in the event of an emergency. Mid-State Communications,
as our supplier, was involved from the design stage to final testing and
helped to make the process as simple as possible.”
