How to Prepare for an Emergency with Portable Sound Systems

Emergencies can strike at any time. Make sure your business, organization, school or community is prepared with a portable sound system. In an emergency every second counts, shouting over the noise can waste precious seconds. You need to make sure you are heard.

A lightweight portable sound system is a great way to make sure everyone hears your message clearly and quickly.

In the first moments of a disaster roughly 10% of people panic.

80% essentially do nothing, unable to come to terms with what is happening they freeze.

The remaining 10% jump into action.

One of the main points of conducting emergency drilling is to train the 10% to begin coordinating the activities of the eighty percent trying to get them to do the right thing.

Communicating the action plan quickly and effectively prevents the panic group from influencing the behavior of the eighty percent awaiting further instructions.

Portable sound systems such as megaphones can help your emergency planning leaders effectively communicate during the critical stages of the emergency.

By having these leaders use this type of communication equipment, they can effectively override the noise, commotion, and sense of panic that can impair any organized emergency plan.

There are also long-range weatherproof systems which are ideal for directing emergency crews and crowd control in larger areas.

These systems are ideal for situations that require moving personnel from indoor facilities to an inclement outdoor environment where the elements may add to the complexity of the emergency.
