Chicago's Roosevelt University Enrolls In RealView's All-Digital First Responder Technology
Life-Saving CommandScope™ to be Installed in Five South Loop University Buildings
One of Chicago’s most historic buildings is being electronically pre-planned as Roosevelt University, located in the South Loop, implements RealView LLC’s CommandScope™ technology across its campus. The Auditorium Building and Auditorium Theatre are nationally-designated landmarks and two of five buildings whose data is being entered into the program that provides first responders critical property and occupant information both en route and onsite.
With the implementation of CommandScope, Roosevelt University is demonstrating a strong commitment to campus safety, and a focus on providing building information to first responders in cases of emergency. CommandScope provides city first responders instant access to site plans, floor plans, utility shut-off locations, campus maps, fire hydrant locations, persons requiring special assistance, and other critical building information.
“The implementation of CommandScope is one of the more important enhancements we’ve made to campus safety at Roosevelt,” says Maureen Froncek, director of campus safety. “In all, we are digitizing the information of more than 1,672,000 square feet of classroom, laboratory, housing, office, and auditorium space.”
CommandScope technology is easy to use. It also is shareable, so even first responders unfamiliar with an emergency site will have working knowledge of the building, its occupants and its hazards. They are prepared to act with knowledge rather than trial and error, saving time and lives.
