We work directly with building representatives to gather floor plans, interior/exterior labeling nomenclature, and current imagery of a site. We exchange proofs directly with building representatives to ensure the final graphic matches the current layout of the school building. We standardize classroom labels, key utility locations, hallway and stair labels, exterior door levels, and labeling of the exterior grounds like parking lots and athletic fields.

Specific Questions

Collaborative Response Graphics are important because the majority of law enforcement officers, emergency medical technicians, and fire professionals that respond to your building or campus will have no familiarity with the site. This slows the ability to respond to a critical incident, like an active assailant. Collaborative Response Graphics allow for better and faster tactical decision-making during an incident, which cuts seconds to minutes off the amount of time it takes to make life-saving decisions under stress. This includes closing with active assailants and evacuating critical casualties from a building.
