Minimizing Response Times at Large Events
Large venues and arenas can hold tens of thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands, of people attending events meant to bring positive experiences and memories. Professional sports facilities hold tens of thousands of fans that gather at sports games throughout each season. Large concert venues hosting popular musicians will attract as many fans as the venue can possibly hold. There are events held annually that are attended by millions of people and televised across the nation.
In recent years, large venues hosting sizable crowds have become the targets for mass shootings. Whether it be a large single event or several smaller events on the same campus that draws the crowds, a shooting is extremely tragic and often difficult for the public to comprehend. Yet fans do not stop attending events out of fear of a potential active shooter situation.
The Shot Tracer gunshot detection system provides an added security measure should a shooting occur. Shot Tracer’s gunshot detection systems can alert law enforcement, emergency personnel, and medical facilities of an active shooter situation within seconds of a gunshot. This technology could save many lives when used in large venues and arenas. With Shot Tracer, law enforcement and security personnel would receive an alert with the information needed to end the shooting, thus leading to a faster reaction. Victims will receive medical help sooner because medical centers will have been notified and be prepared for the incoming wounded. Public safety is highly important and life is sacred. Shot Tracer eliminates the of wasting precious time resulting in lives saved.
