Many private sector corporations are realizing the extreme need for Emergency Management Teams within their organization. The horrific events of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina proved that terrorists and Mother Nature do not target military or emergency management locations specifically. It is for this reason that companies need to prepare for emergencies with a combined approach of training key personnel in the Incident Command System (ICS) and develop an Emergency Action Plan in the case of a disaster. To much precious time is wasted at the onset of a disaster to wait for emergency organizations to arrive and setup a command post. An internal Emergency Management Coordinator, properly supplied with effective management products, can make all the difference through the course of an event.
The full line of Tactron products are based on the Incident Command System. This makes them highly effective for managing any type of emergency scene. The Tactron system can be used by Emergency Management Coordinators in metropolitan hi-rise buildings during an earthquake to organize the evacuation and recovery efforts, or by oil refineries where the threat of a hazardous material spill is ever present.
The following companies are just a few that are using the Tactron system:
- Intel Corporation
- Fairchild Semiconductor
- Amgen, Inc.
- Boeing Security and Fire Services
- AIG (American International Group, Inc.)
- Albany Research Center
- Puget Sound Energy
- Smurfit Newsprint Corp.
- Tosco Refining Co.
