Case Study - Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center

Leverages SARA for Mass Notification of Emergencies

Opportunity

The Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center in Fishersville, Virginia, uses the Situational Awareness and Response Assistant (SARA) from Status Solutions for emergency alerting. A blue alert indicates a weather emergency, and a yellow alert is used for mass notification about a hostile intruder.

"We're an open campus ... We've got the elementary, middle, and high schools up here, plus a residential area. We have a lot people in this complex, and any number of things can happen. We have to be prepared."
- Chip Stratton, Safety and Risk Management Director
