Stetson University tests new emergency alert system

IntelliGuard Systems solution deployed on university's campus

J. Roy Pottle, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of IntelliGuard Systems, LLC said, "Stetson University immediately understood the technical advantages of the IntelliGuard System and the speed with which they moved is a clear indication of their commitment to their students, faculty and staff alike." Dave Andersen, President & Chief Operating Officer, also noted, "The team at Stetson was highly educated with respect to current technology and related emergency systems. They clearly understood the benefits and inherent limitations of these systems, allowing them to incorporate the IntelliGuard System into their existing processes to provide a more robust and comprehensive emergency notification system."

The highly reliable, intelligent messaging afforded by the IntelliGuard System operates on a dedicated FCC-licensed network that is not in the public domain, therefore limiting the incidence of delays, access, network overload, crashing or hacking that often plagues the digital technology that drives typical campus alert systems. IntelliGuard is a revolutionary advancement of pager technology that "far surpasses the most current wireless technology when it comes to emergency communication," said Penney. "The big bonus of RAVENAlert devices is that they broadcast emergency messages simultaneously and without delay. With 4,000 students and more than 100 classrooms, it’s the next step in our readiness program that everyone can feel good about, from parents and students to administration and faculty." Penney commented that the students participating in the two-day system test were quite engaged in the process, which speaks volumes about their concern about campus safety and their belief in the RAVENAlert products.
