Importance of Emergency Markers at Shopping Centers
Where do you find Emergency Markers at Shopping Center?
Due to many access points at a shopping center, it is important to have an Emergency Marker located at each entry/exit point.
Each of these markers will have its own unique 3 Letter 3 Number code containing GPS coordinates and special messages for emergency services to that exact location.
This information then is supplied to Triple Zero (000) so they can dispatch Emergency Services with the message required to know:
- What nearest road intersection is closest to the emergency location
- What known features, fixed assets or landmarks such as public toilet, bbq area, etc.
- What obstructions may be in their way (may have a locked gate or bollards for example to pass)
- What equipment is accessible to that location
All of this information is important so Emergency Services can reach you faster to SAVE TIME SAVE LIVES
💡 Many Shopping Centers are investing in Emergency Markers at each entrance making sure they are doing their duty of care and keeping people safe. As markers assist in Saving Time and Saving Lives.
