Rave Mobile Safety Honors Customers Who Are Paving the Way with Innovative and Effective Uses of Technology
Rave Mobile Safety, the trusted provider of technology solutions that enhance critical communications, increase resiliency, and improve safety, today announced the recipients of the company's annual Trailblazer and SmartSave Awards who will be honored at Rave's Annual Summit, taking place virtually September 27-29.
Since 2017, the Rave Trailblazer Award has formally recognized Rave customers who have gone above and beyond to provide a safe community through effective and innovative uses of technology. While all Rave customers dedicate themselves to their critical mission of protecting the populations they serve, these awardees have taken truly unique approaches to engaging with their communities and establishing collaborative partnerships that enhance safety. This year's winners include:
"We hold ourselves to the highest standard when it comes to protecting our employees," said Brooks Cucuel, senior director of Security & Business Resilience at AstraZeneca. "We worked with Rave to simplify and streamline our security practices to make communication more efficient in the event of an emergency. This collaboration has allowed us to have an intuitive system that is easy for our security personnel to use and ensures that everyone knows what they are responsible for. The result is a quicker response and safer campuses for our employees."
The SmartSave Award recognizes customers' efforts to incorporate lifesaving technologies into their 9-1-1 emergency commuication operations for their communities, using solutions like the Rave 911 Suite, Rave Panic Button, Rave Alert and Rave Guardian to positively impact emergency calls and response. This year's winners include:
"Rapid intervention can be the difference between life and death," said Kurt Mills, executive director for Snohomish County 9-1-1. "The Rave Panic Button plays an important role in all kinds of emergencies because it prompts teachers and faculty at the school who can often act or take steps before police, fire, or EMS arrive. This situation plays out time and time again in our community, including an incident when our staff recognized the need for CPR and an AED and were able to help save a life before the paramedics arrived. That kind of coordinated, early response between law enforcement, the school, and EMS makes all the difference in saving a life - and goes a long way in improving safety for the community."
Rave Summit highlights need for collaboration and innovation when tackling new and old threats
The award winners will be recognized at Rave's Annual Summit where approximately 1,500 attendees will hear from Rave customers and industry thought leaders about best practices. Speakers will share their experiences related to critical communication, operational efficiencies, and emphasize the need for all parties to collaborate. In addition to having two dynamic keynote speakers, including Dr. Jillian Peterson, who believes the best way to prevent violence is to deeply understand the life histories of people who commit it, the Summit will cover a wide range of topics, including:
"With in-person interactions at work, school, and socially returning to pre-pandemic levels, we've unfortunately seen the return of old threats while simultaneously innovating for emerging hazards," said Noah Reiter, SVP, customer success at Rave. "The winners of this year's awards are effectively tackling both persistent challenges and new concerns by embracing change holistically, utilizing technology, and going above and beyond to serve their communities. They deserve our recognition and respect."
