The Solution
For this reason, three independent monitoring systems were fitted seamlessly together to track various environmental factors around the site. Together, these systems continuously track 33 sensors, 50 measurement beacons and 20 strategic markers. If the monitoring systems detect something amiss at or near the site of risk, Micromedia International’s alarm notification software, ALERT, is set to automatically transmit a timely alarm to the proper

There are four types of alarms ALERT is configured to receive and dispatch:
1. Measurement alarms – alarms triggered when there is a significant change from one measurement period to the next on the same sensor
2. Forecast alarms – alarms that predict activity based on measurements obtained over time
3. Server alarms – alarms triggered whenever a backup server takes over for a main server
4. Equipment Fault Alarms – alarms triggered whenever a radio transmission or measurement acquisition fails
Operational Impact
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Maintenance]
    Whenever one of the alarms listed above is triggered, ALERT sends out the notifications in the form of mobile phone voice alarms to on-duty or on-call staff. Once an alarm has been acknowledged, the appropriate staff is able to quickly carry out specialized instructions, depending on which of the alarms they have received. According to users, the ALERT disaster monitoring system allows for faster response times and flexibility in the case of an emergency. This is especially important since, in the case of such an emergency, a few minutes could save an untold number of lives.
