  • Stopping an Active Shooter's Negative Mind Pattern

    What causes a person to become so angry that they become an Active Shooter with the intent of killing many innocent people? A better question is what can be done to stop them once they enter a building?

    We have all experienced bad days. It can start off with sleeping late trying to hurry, spilling hot coffee all over yourself. Stubbing your toe. getting pulled over for speeding. It seems to snowball. I was experiencing a day such as and realized wow I am feeling stressed. I decided change my mood and took a hot shower and put on some Ella Fitzgerald. if she can’t get you out of a bad mood nothing can't. Then it hit me. I am playing Emergency Notification announcements for students and faculty but what am I playing for an Active Shooter?

    An Active Shooter may be very angry so what can I play that is powerful enough to break the negative thought pattern. I thought of Ella but chances are they may not be a fan. That is when I remembered a Hawaiian Prayer called Ho'Oponopono it simply says "I am Sorry, Please Forgive Me, Thank you, I Love You. What if I recorded a large group of kids repeating the prayer and played it through the schools overhead paging system? Could this be enough to break the pattern? These may be words this angry person may need to hear. There are so many traumas that could have caused this person to snap.

    I called Penton USA to discuss how we could add the Ho'Oponopono prayer to the Active Shooter Notification and it turns out it can be easily added. I never want to find out if this works.

  • Clear Voice™ Planar Speakers for Emergency Paging Now Available

    Clear Voice Planar SpeakersTelecom & Data introduces Clear Voice™ planar speakers for emergency and general paging in manufacturing, sports stadiums and entertainment venues, and police and fire operations use. Originally developed for military applications, planar speakers deliver an unprecedented level of clear voice communication over distances greater than a mile, even in very noisy environments.

    Clear Voice planar speakers can save lives by delivering loud and extremely intelligible messages via a compact speaker. They are ideal any time there’s a need for voice communication in a loud environment, a large coverage area, or a long distance. Telecom & Data offers Clear Voice planar speakers that throw sound for distances of 100 yards, 140 yards, 250 yards, and 650 yards.

    The power and exciting ingenuity of this disruptive technology is hard to convey in words. Magnetic planar technology disperses sound waves differently – more like a beam of light, so sound waves do not scatter as the sound moves away from the speaker. As a result, the speaker transmits sound much farther without losing clarity. In fact, the acoustics become more powerful as the listening distance is extended, up to a mile.

    Clear Voice has integrated magnetic planar technology in mountable speakers designed for demanding environments such as manufacturing plants, distribution centers, sports stadiums, college campuses and concert and festival venues. Small, portable and durable hand-held speakers are available for police, fire and search-and-rescue operations – anywhere long-distance clarity and intelligibility are key.

    Clear Voice speakers can be installed separately or as an addition to existing paging systems, with three options for connectivity: Wireless, IP paging and analog. Fewer planar speakers are needed than conventional speakers, which reduces installation time and costs. Manufactured in the United States, Clear Voice speakers are weather-proof and built to deliver consistent, superior performance even with heavy-duty outdoor use.
