On November 17 & 18, 2021, the inaugural Natural Disaster and Emergency Management (NDEM) Expo was held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. With so many unknowns in this ever-changing world, the trade event and online resource was held to provide organizations from around the world with the tools they need to prepare, respond, and recover from emergencies. Individuals connected to find ways to maximize security while minimizing disruptions within their day-to-day routines.
The event highlighted ten safety products in a special showcase area. These featured products were chosen by exhibitors to present and promote their finest solutions over the course of two days. Over 3,000 conference attendees perused the displays and were able to converse with company representatives. The attendees, who consisted of emergency management, business continuity professionals, and safety leaders, voted for the product that they thought had the best features and the most benefits by placing a ballot in a designated box. The votes were tallied and the NDEM Expo 2021 Featured Product Showcase winner was Safety OneClick, CrisisGo’s wireless panic button system.
Safety OneClick is easily mounted on a wall, under a desk, or placed in a room. It also comes with clips so the user can attach it to their belt or shirt. The buttons can be preset with a specific name or location. When the button is pressed, a signal is passed to a LoRa gateway and a silent alarm is set off on the security team’s device informing them about the button that was pressed. The emergency notification can then warn all staff and security on their individual devices. The safety team can check and coordinate with others to ensure protection for all. There is also an option to alert first responders, if necessary.
Employees Mike Boehm, Randy Ceryan, and Kelly Moore were the expo representatives for CrisisGo. When Mike Boehm, Regional Sales Manager at CrisisGo, accepted the award, he revealed an interesting fact about its longevity: Safety OneClick has a battery that lasts up to 10 years - the equivalent of 200,000 button presses! He said, “Safety OneClick uses a LoRa gateway so even if the electricity or Wi-Fi goes out, you can still send the panic alerts.” Whether you are part of a school or a commercial company, Safety OneClick is the easy-to-use, easy-to-install, affordable solution to your safety needs.
