Rave Panic Button
One Button Push to Improve Response Times
In 2017, Rave launched new customer implementations that led to increased safety across the country in a number of industries.
Rave solutions helped shape organizations safety procedures from higher education settings to major public events.
Two-Way Critical Communications and Personal Safety App
Preventing Student Self-Harm with Technology
The University of Cincinnati sought to improve safety for over 43,000 students, faculty and staff across their 200+ acre campus last year with the implementation of Rave Guardian, a two-way critical communications and personal safety application designed to connect users directly to the university’s security resources.

“Safety is a top priority for our university, and we’ve already seen the benefits of Rave’s technology working firsthand as we were able to prevent a student from causing self-harm,” said Edward Dadosky, EMA director at the University of Cincinnati.
“Through this technology, our students are able to send tips anonymously to notify the appropriate personnel should they be concerned about the well-being of a friend or classmate.”
Rave 911 Suite
Powerful Data and Communication Tools to Save Time and Lives
Protecting 500,000 at the Kentucky Derby and Beyond
After the City of Louisville selected Rave to power its LENS (Louisville Emergency Notification System) Alert solution in August 2015, the city upgraded to the Rave 911 Suite in 2017.
This 9-1-1 technology provides first responders with powerful capabilities for handling, dispatching and responding to emergency calls more efficiently and effectively.

“The flexibility of Rave’s solution gave us peace of mind when more than half a million individuals came into the city for the Kentucky Derby,” said Mitchell Burmeister, public information officer at Louisville Metro Emergency Services.
“The upgrade to the Rave 911 Suite will only further increase the safety of our residents even when we see a boost in visitors during events throughout the area.”
