AEGIX AIM System Transforms Emergency Management with Electronic Connection and Physical Protection
SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AEGIX Global today announced the AEGIX AIM (Active Incident Management) system to streamline and improve the way emergencies are handled room-by-room and building-by-building within a community. The AEGIX AIM system combines three essential elements to improve emergency outcomes with a powerful emergency management and communication application and platform; innovative physical and ballistic protection; expert training with contingency planning and exercises for various scenarios.
“There is no substitute for preparedness, communication and situational awareness at every stage of man-made emergencies, accidents or natural disasters,” said Chet Linton, CEO of AEGIX Global. “The AEGIX AIM system directly addresses some of the toughest emergency management challenges by answering what’s going on, who needs help, and exactly where it needs to go. The app is very sophisticated, yet extremely easy to use. When this technology is combined with the revolutionary physical protection of Swift Shield and the one-on-one training our team provides, city leaders, corporate executives, school administrators, first responders and parents can know they are too prepared as possible to successfully handle a variety of emergency situations.”
Emergency management platform
The AEGIX AIM app, powered by DIR-S, is a user-friendly push-button application for managing facility-specific emergencies from a desktop computer, patrol car or smartphone. The app allows individuals in an organization to notify others of an emergency with the push of a button. It allows people in schools, hospitals, airports, resorts, universities, corporate offices, public buildings, manufacturing facilities and more to communicate in real time in the event of an emergency with chat features and a simple push button function allowing individuals to let others know if they are “safe” or “unsafe”. The AEGIX AIM app gives first responders new levels of situational awareness with interactive floor plans to better know exactly what is happening and where in real time.
This application is essential for emergency management in worst-case scenarios such as active shooters at a school or a chemical spill at a manufacturing plant, as well as more common emergencies such as medical incidents and lost children. Not only does it manage communications, but it also allows people in the system, including teachers and managers, to report on individuals, such as every student in the school building or every employee in the facility. Also, it provides reverse alerts, which instantly notify schools, city buildings, etc. of a dangerous situation such as the approach of an armed suspect. Reverse alerts allow leaders to initiate lockdown protocols in seconds to help keep people safe and out of harm’s way.
The AEGIX AIM System provides physical security and wearable ballistic protection with the lightweight, award-winning Swift Shield™. Swift Shield uses a unique origami folding design to shrink down to laptop size for easy storage. It offers a new approach to personal protection as it can be stowed discreetly in a lobby reception, in classrooms, on an office shelf, under the seat of a vehicle or even in a bag backpack or computer bag. Swift Shield panels are individually certified to Level IIIA (NIJ-STD-0108.01), so they defend against most ballistic threats. In addition to Swift Shield, AEGIX can provide next-generation bulletproof glass, first aid equipment and other personal protective equipment.
Education and formation
AEGIX AIM training not only provides peace of mind by giving executives, first responders and individuals the best way to use the system and equipment, it also provides training and guidance on how to develop optimal contingency plans, how and when to perform drills and how best to interact with first responders and others.
