Calif., Sept. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Since fires
have recently plagued California,
hospital emergency coordination tools have gotten additional
attention. The ability for hospitals to reach staff everywhere is
now a new priority for healthcare management teams. John C. Fremont
Hospital, near Yosemite National
Park in Mariposa
California, recently sent FastCommand text alert fire
warnings directly to all staff phones. When a large local fire
threatened their rural hospital the instant alerting of the staff
to take action was a real need. The ability to reach staff wherever
they might be as events develop is now a crucial safety advantage
for California Hospitals.
In January 2021 the state of
California required healthcare
staff be alerted quickly upon exposure to the fatal coronavirus.
Alhambra Hospital in Alhambra,
California utilized text alerts tied to exposure letters to
meet state requirements during the initial threat. Alerts sent to
medical staff phones are a quick and dependable advantage in
protecting lives. FastCommand is now readied for future pandemics
and threats if needed.
Earthquake response now requires hospital tools be be readied
ahead of time. AHMC Healthcare Inc. in metro Los Angeles is setting up banner alerts to
complement their newly designed hospital website. These alerts can
appear on the hospital website directly while other alerts are sent
to hospital employee phones. Should Anaheim Regional be damaged
ahead during an earthquake their hospital management will be able
to activate their FastCommand mobile website system to send patient
admission forms directly to staff phones or to the website. The
hospital can then operate from alternate locations quickly after a
damaging event. Hospitals can also continue admitting patients
after a hack of the patient records system if their primary
admission system is temporarily unavailable.
Bakersfield Heart Hospital in Bakersfield, California purchased FastCommand
in response to its 2017 active shooter incident. At the time of the
shootings the hospital could not quickly reach every employee.
FastCommand now speeds the warning to all staff should another
active shooter attempt occur ahead.
Tahoe Forest Health System in Truckee,
California has also just completed training and is now
preparing for additional fire threats. By preparing now to use
alerting tools the hospital will be readied for more uncertainty
Even other institutions in California are setting up this same protective
technology. The Bishop Paiute Tribe in Bishop, California recently used FastCommand
website alerts for notifying their tribe of flash flood threats
during a recent weather event. Intercepting a website with fast
alerts or sending text alerts is now becoming critical
infrastructure for California
institutions preparing to protect state citizens.
FastCommand patented website deflection technologies are
specifically designed for critical emergency situations. This
cutting-edge continuity technology helps communications to endure
even during website overload or phone collapse. The tools are used
by non-technical healthcare staff during many threats that can
quickly occur in the healthcare industry and other institutions.
The system is used during situations such as pandemics, active
shooter events, natural disasters, hacking situations, etc.
FastCommand has public safety teams available 24 hours a day 365
days a year to serve as the hospital's emergency communication
personnel. Learn more at https://www.fastcommand.com/press.
