An antiquated process for reporting critical information to first responders during a crisis event
The average police response time to a school active shooter for example, is 18 minutes.*
*Source:: Homeland Defense and Security
The average active shooter event takes 13.5 minutes*
First Responders are arriving on scene 4.5 minutes AFTER the active shooter crisis has ended.
With the press of a button, officers & dispatch are directly notified of the incident, along with the address and location within the building. They know what is happening, where it is happening, who it is happening to and help is on the way immediately. This significantly reduces response time from Law Enforcement while also notifying all those under attack within the organization/building.
The ASR Threat Alert system can be installed and implemented across any vertical market, for any business or school and can even be utilized for outdoor events.

With a 30-year career as a law enforcement officer and as a Navy SEAL, Hector Delgado has conducted hundreds of hours of training seminars on the active shooter epidemic plaguing our nation. Real time critical information was a common thread that appeared to present itself at every active shooter incident. With Hector's understanding of the dynamics of critical incident management and communications, ASR was born. ASR was developed to fill the void of passing real-time critical information to first responders and all those under attack. Hector's philosophy was to think as a responder, victim, and attacker which has allowed him to transfer his knowledge and experience to the ASR Team and philosophy.
