The new Wide-Area Emergency Broadcast System (W.E.B.S) by Chicago-based Talk-A-Phone integrates the company’s emergency/information phone and wide-area broadcast capabilities into a single communication system that is ideal for large campuses, open space programs, and mass transit applications. The tower features concealed high-powered speakers that provide 360-degree coverage for both locally and remotely transmitted broadcasts. With the system’s Zone Paging System, officials can broadcast remotely via an attendant phone and also have the option of broadcasting to towers individually, in selected groups, or all at once. The phone automatically activates the attention-getting blue light/strobe mounted atop the tower whenever an emergency call is placed and quickly connects users to emergency/information assistance. The tower can be customized to feature CCTV and a variety of lettering, signage, and colors.
