A Rapid Emergency Response System (RERS) that instantly notifies emergency responders and building occupants of an emergency situation, expedites a rapid response, triggers emergency management protocols and ultimately saves lives.
BluePoint’s solution delivers Key Communications and Situational Awareness Tools that enable building occupants and first responders to make faster, more informed decisions for better outcomes. Information is delivered through the most Intuitive, User-Friendly Interface on the market.
BluePoint’s Solution—with Command & Control (C2) Incident Management System—Provides:
Intuitive, Immediate, Redundant Notification
BluePoint employs a user-friendly interface that enables people to quickly and automatically warn all building occupants of a crisis, and initiate police response. BluePoint has integrated building-wide audio and visual notification with the redundancy of computer and smartphone-based notifications.
Effective 2-Way Communication
BluePoint’s C2 includes not only automated notification, but discreet 2-way communication between building occupants and the command group.
Security Camera Integration
BluePoint incorporates a live security camera interface into its C2 platform so the command group can view all facility cameras from any internet-enabled device. These camera locations are shown on a building layout to provide more accurate location information.
Keep it Simple, Training
BluePoint’s intuitive user interface was designed specifically to be used in crisis situations. To help our clients improve all crisis policies—not just those for armed intruders—we have teamed with leading safety and security training organizations across the country to provide independent third-party comprehensive crisis management reviews.
BluePoint brings together the technology, systems, policies, and procedures that, combined, significantly improve our clients’ crisis preparedness. We equip building occupants and first responders with the tools to make faster, more informed decisions for better outcomes.

BluePoint Alert Solution – The Complete Solution (3:05 min)
The familiar, intuitive, simple solution for Rapid Emergency Response Systems. BluePoint does for law enforcement what a fire alarm does for the fire department.
The faster the first responders are on site, the faster the emergency situation ends.
The faster people take precautions, the faster they are safe.
Panicked people don’t think clearly or react rationally.
Automatically contacts police with minimal human action – faster than a 911 call
Immediately alerts building occupants to a dangerous situation – take faster precautions
Reduces police response time – end emergencies faster
Communicates to intruders that police are on their way – deter intruder incidents
Initiates the Command and Control Incident Management System – Improve Communications
Designed for protecting people at the front desk, the receptionist can remain engaged in conversation with a visitor while discreetly alerting others in the facility – and police if necessary – to an escalating situation. With 2 clicks of the mouse, a notification is sent through our Command & Control system to designated groups of people with exact location information of where to assist. A great addition to our Police and Medical Alert systems!
If desired, internal first responders are notified first. If the situation is beyond their capabilities, they initiate second-stage notification to external first responders.
Command & Control
This Incident Management System includes:
Unlimited user-defined incident protocols-armed intruder, child abduction, fire, bomb threats, natural disasters, hazardous material release, any custom incident
Unlimited number of contacts and groups
Opt-in Ability-if desired, individuals can choose to opt-in for notifications
Social Media-if desired, make broader announcements through Facebook, Twitter, etc.
The system is fully Supervised; it is continually monitoring itself and reporting deficiencies in real time.
The entire system has constant Battery Back-Up; a loss of power does not disable the system.
Redundant lines of communication; if one line is inactive, the deficiency is reported and the other line is available.
The system can Only be taken off-line at the control panel; it cannot be disabled remotely.
Sound Detection Integration
Both gunshot and breaking glass sound detection systems can be seamlessly integrated with the BluePoint Solution to provide even faster response times.
Access Control / Fire Door Activation
Integration with access control and fire door activation systems is easily accomplished through our control panel. Lock, unlock, and close doors automatically once the BluePoint system is activated.
How It Works
Once activated with a BluePoint Alert Solutions device:
Police are contacted in less time than a 911 call.
Building occupants are alerted by:
PA or phone system message
Blue strobe lights–both interior and exterior to the building.
Text, e-mail, and voice alerts are automatically sent to designated groups–employees, leadership team, etc.-with location information including a Visual Point Identification (VPI) diagram.
The command group receives a text or e-mail with a secure link to the Command & Control portal–no credentials required. In the portal, the command group can:
See the VPI diagram with all occurrences of device activations
See incoming replies to text and e-mail from the alerted groups, sorted for commonalities
View live security camera feeds from pertinent cameras
Send follow-up instructions to designated groups via text or e-mail
Distribute emergency documents manually or automatically
BluePoint brings the same familiar, intuitive, simple solution to Medical Emergencies.
Automatically contacts first responders with minimal human action – faster than a 911 call
Immediately alerts key internal individuals to medical emergency – quickly initiate protocol
Reduces medical first responders response time – address emergencies faster
Direct first responders to location with VPI diagrams and strobes
Initiates the command & control Incident Management System – Improve communications
What It Doesn’t Do
Unlike our Police Alert system, BluePoint Medical Alert:
Does not initiate all strobe lights within the building
Does not communicate the incident throughout the entire facility-operations continue
Does not automatically alert all groups of people.
Where It’s Needed
Any Facility with AED Devices
Medical first responders need to direct their attention to the injured person-not calling 911 and giving information.
Large Manufacturing Facilities
Medical first responders receive a single building address. BluePoint Medical Alert provides a visual indication (strobe light) outside the entrance closest to the medical emergency.
Clear, intuitive direction helps employees act swiftly in a medical emergency, reducing the need for training.
Large Public Spaces-Malls, Arenas, Museums, etc.
Whether or not a two-stage response is needed, BluePoint Medical Alert allows any incident witness to rapidly contact first responders with accurate location information-both the building location and incident location within the building.
How It Works
Once activated with a BluePoint Medical Alert device:
First responders are contacted in less time than a 911 call.
Provides a two-stage response. If desired, internal first responders are notified first. If the situation is beyond their capabilities, they initiate second-stage notification to external first responders.
A strobe light at the exterior door nearest the incident directs first responders.
Key individuals are automatically notified of a medical situation through text and e-mail:
Employees trained in first aid
A dynamic Visual Point Identification (VPI) diagram graphically shows the location of the incident within the building.
C2 - Command & Control
Designed to integrate seamlessly with BluePoint Police Alert and Medical Alert systems, the Command & Control Incident Management System is also a stand-alone valuable tool. Command & Control complies with FEMA recommended incident command structure and multi-hazard communications.
