How it Works
Immediate shot detection and alerts to building occupants and first responders
If an active shooter event takes place, it is imperative that the situation is quickly identified and communicated to emergency personnel and building occupants.
Hoosier Security provides gunshot detection systems that process all gunshot data within the sensor, removing the need for human interpretation or intervention and saving time when seconds matter most. When a shot is detected, the active shooter detection system instantly alerts users to the location of shots on a mapping interface and simultaneously sends this information by SMS text message, email and via other third-party alert systems. In an emergency, critical information is immediately relayed to building occupants and emergency personnel so that proper steps can be taken to control the situation as quickly as possible.
5 – 7 Minutes:Average length of an active shooter incident
5-15 Seconds:An average of one death occurs every 5-15 seconds during an active shooter incident
Immediate DetectionOur system immediately detects gunshots and simultaneously alerts first responders within one second.
The Detection System
A Critical Component in Active Shooter Response
- WHAT is it? Loud noise vs. gunshot
- WHEN was the first shot? Timeline
- WHERE is the shooter? Location / Movement
- WHO is the shooter? Visual Description
- HOW many shooters? Coord attack or Lone Wolf?
It’s a chilling call, yet one that has become all too common in our everyday lives. The active shooter threat is on the rise, with K-12 schools and college campuses often targeted.
The active shooter threat is a priority that educational institutions cannot afford to ignore.
By their very nature, hospitals and healthcare facilities are intended to be open and accessible environments where patient care is the top priority. This unfortunately also makes these facilities vulnerable to targeted acts of violence.
The sheer number of people that move through an airport makes them vulnerable. The fact that everyone is on a mission to get where they are going means the unsecured public areas are full of distracted targets for a would-be shooter.
