Jeron Pro-Alert™ Area of Rescue System Endorsed by Fire Professionals
During an emergency, when a building occupant cannot evacuate on their own, locating to an area of refuge and utilizing the Pro-Alert 480 system to alert first responders of their location with direct communication is paramount. If the Area of Rescue system is not monitored locally, the Pro-Alert 480 system automatically routes the emergency alert to an off-site location through an automated phone call.
Jeron recently had the opportunity to speak with James Dominik, retired Chief Officer of the Wilmette Fire Department, about their Pro-Alert 480 Area of Rescue System. Mr. Dominik remains very active in research for fire protection and life-safety issues as he is also one of the founding members of the advisory board for Underwriters Laboratories' Firefighter Safety Research Institute.
James remarks, "As a former fire chief with 40 years of experience as a fire safety professional, I could not be more impressed with Jeron and the design and quality of the Pro-Alert 480 system. Simply put, this system will save lives. The expertise and customer service Jeron brings to the table, added to the fact that all their products are made in the USA, makes it easy for me to unreservedly recommend the Pro-Alert 480 system for your facilities."
National Fire Alarm Code requires area of rescue locations to support both alerting and two-way communications. The 'area of rescue' is typically located in elevator lobbies/stairwells in high-rise, mixed use, commercial and hospitality facilities. The new UL2525 Listing for Area of Rescue Assistance is being adopted across the U.S. as fire marshals and Authorities Having Jurisdiction understand the importance of these life-saving systems. Jeron Electronic Systems Inc. provides the Pro Alert 480 which is field programmable, fully supervised, and utilizes standard category cable.
