Texas Southern University (TSU) has successfully tested a new state-of-the-art emergency alert system designed by IntelliGuard Systems, LLC. that provides immediate and simultaneous notification to students, faculty and staff in the event of an emergency. Through advances in micro technology, the Intelliguard System delivers messages in less than 20 seconds to all persons with a dedicated messaging device, the RAVEN Keychain, which emits a loud audible alert upon receipt of an emergency message, guiding students, faculty and staff out of harms way. The Intelliguard System was tested by more than 50 TSU students, faculty and staff, each of which was provided a RAVEN Keychain, weighing less than an ounce and about two and a quarter inches long. Scattering to remote parts of the TSU campus, participants found that the system alerted them simultaneously and provided instructions within 14 seconds of dispatch. The RAVEN Keychain and Wall Unit (which alerts critical locations like classrooms) are products of advances in micro-technology and wireless messaging by IntelliGuard Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Messaging, a leading provider of immediate notification systems and messaging devices serving over one million first responders and other emergency personnel.
