Cooper Notification sponsors ISC West Public Safety and Security Expo

Long Branch, NJ., March 31, 2009 – Cooper Notification, an operating unit of Cooper Industries, announced today that its portable Mass Notification System (MNS) will be utilized to broadcast show messages to attendees during the International Security Conference (ISC West), April 1-3, at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nev. This sponsorship further demonstrates the effectiveness of the WAVES (Wireless Audio Visual Emergency System) Mobile Speaker Arrays (MSA) to relay critical updates and emergency messages over wide areas.

The Cooper Notification MSA covers large areas with crisp and intelligible voice, tone and siren warnings. The portable field notification units can be used for disaster management, temporary events and tactical operations. The mobile system requires minimal operator set-up and can be rapidly deployed before, during and after a disaster. Additionally, the MSA can operate autonomously or as an integral component of the WAVES (Wireless Audio Visual Emergency System) MNS or TACWAVES (Tactical WAVES) portable alerting system.

“In the event of an emergency, reliable announcements from Mass Notification Systems are effective methods of reaching individuals over wide areas,” said Ratna Reddi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Cooper Notification.

As evidenced by its presence at ISC West, the MSA is easily transportable to fit any security need. It can be towed by most vehicles, or even airlifted to a location for immediate use.

In addition to its event sponsorship, Cooper Notification will also demonstrate its complete multi-layered solutions offering at this year’s ISC West show, including the Roam Secure Alert Network (RSAN) for personal and regional text and the SAFEPATH indoor voice evacuation system and voice alerting. Cooper Notification’s Wheelock and MEDC branded fire and security appliances and devices will also be featured at its booth, #16086.

Typically ranked by industry professionals as the best security event in the nation, ISC West averages more than 26,000 attendees each year. For more information or to set up an appointment with Cooper Notification at this year’s conference, please contact Jacquiline Townshend, 732-443-6022 or
