Guardian Security Reminds Customers to Check Panic Systems

“We recommend testing your system regularly because every second counts during an incident,” said Chief Operations Officer, Joe Dunn. Guardian Security’s panic buttons immediately contact the desired first responder for help by text message, email, or law enforcement radios, so it is extremely important to notify the intended receiver prior to testing the panic system.

Guardian Security’s panic buttons immediately contact the desired first responder for help by text message, email, or law enforcement radios, so it is extremely important to notify the intended receiver prior to testing the panic system.

For example, if a court house reports to a sheriff’s office, the court house should notify dispatch days prior to testing their system so that the officers on call have enough time to plan accordingly for the test. To avoid panic, school administrations are advised to notify the city police, as well as parents of students who attend their school, that the test will take place within the week.

Notifying the monitoring agency is imperative especially when gun vaults are involved. As soon as the gun vaults are opened, an immediate notification is sent to first responders, and the building, if integrated, will go into lockdown mode.

Aside from notifying your first responders, testing the panic system is pretty simple. If a panic button is present, press the button and make sure the correct message is sent to the desired recipient. If your building is integrated with tilt switches, temperature sensors, door and window contacts, or motion detectors, make sure the lock down protocol is followed immediately after pushing the panic button. Even though you notified your monitoring agency, timing the response time could be beneficial as well.

The final step on checking your Panic Systems to make sure they are fully functional is to change the batteries once a year, as well. “Panic System batteries can last up to 3 years; however, for maximum results, Guardian Security recommends to change them yearly, if possible,” said Dunn.
