Incident response solution provider CENTEGIX has introduced a new digital map product called Safety Blueprint, that provides a dynamic and multilayered map of campus facilities and spaces.

According to the company, Safety Blueprint includes the precise location of all safety assets, to optimize incident management, emergency response and safety planning.

Campus mapping

CENTEGIX highlights that Safety Blueprint is ideal for schools, healthcare facilities, government facilities, private business campuses and more, providing a user-editable architecture map of all buildings and spaces, overlaid with safety and security assets such as AED, fire alarm, first aid kits and extinguishers, cameras and access control technology points.

The company reveals that additional layers can be added, enabling multiple departments to view their own assets and share the precise location and details for each. Assets also have digital tags that allow customers to manage expiration dates with custom notifications. Users can easily update and edit the architecture map at any time without having to re-engage an architect for every change to a floor plan, large or small and changes made to the core map are immediately reflected on all existing layers. 

Real-time updates

Safety Blueprint is available as a stand-alone product or can integrate with CENTEGIX’s CrisisAlert, the wearable panic button for incident response, creating a multilayered safety solution connecting staff badges, facility maps, strobes, intercoms and screens, to campus first responders and 911 dispatch.

“Safety Blueprint is innovative technology and an industry first. CrisisAlert is the only incident response solution that delivers precise room-level location information and we understand how important ‘location’ and mapping situational awareness are to safety planning. We heard from our customers that they wanted real-time visibility of their facilities and outdoor spaces, including the location of security assets,” said Brent Cobb, CEO of CENTEGIX.

“There is no other solution on the market that offers a true interactive ‘live’ map that can be easily updated and shared as needed to meet the needs of multiple departments across an organization. Live, dynamic mapping capabilities improve situational awareness, response times, planning and communication, all of which are crucial for maintaining a safe and secure environment in schools, the workplace or public spaces.”

Key features

CENTEGIX says that the features of Safety Blueprint include: 

  • Dynamic, cloud-based, user-editable digital map enables users to make architectural changes on their own, add assets of all types to the map at any time and update labels; maps can be shared and rolled back to previous versions
  • Scaled architectural drawings for each floor of every campus building, layered with safety assets and combined with satellite street imagery and gridded overlays, provide real-world visualization for emergency planners and responders
  • Precise location of all safety assets, including AED, fire extinguisher, ingress/egress, video surveillance, gas shutoff, water shutoff and access control, equip campus safety teams with critical information to help mitigate harm during an emergency
  • Site-specific labeling for all internal and external building features, campus spaces and surrounding roads and safety and security assets; room colors map to indicate grade levels and/or rooms with special needs or dedicated security assets adds another layer of visual communication for responders that may not be familiar with a campus
  • Secure sharing of maps that allows county agencies to receive a log-in from customers and download the current map version or use the Safety Blueprint application for real-time and up-to-date visualization. Customers can also provide the county with their own version of the map for disaster recovery planning like hurricane evacuations, including asset management specific to the county’s needs

SJA insight

With increasing reports of violence on campuses such as schools, hospitals and private businesses, it is becoming more important to ensure that first responders have as much information as possible when on the scene.

Having a digital map that can be updated in real-time gives first responders crucial data that can help to save lives and prevent injury. The new Safety Blueprint can aid responders so that they know exactly where to go without any obstacles.
