About our VOSB Designation

vosb_large

Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) is a company diversity registration designated under the Veteran Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-461). Registration ensures that companies qualify for preferential procurement for federal contracts if they are owned and controlled by Veterans.

This certification is non-industry specific and requires that the firm meets the small business requirements established by the Small Business Administration (SBA). Additionally, it requires that the company is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a veteran.

Safety and Communication Outdoors: Blue light Decisions

Safety and security are top concerns when it comes to outdoor walking and parking areas, particularly at night. Installing blue light systems is one strategy that security professionals consider to deter crime and provide a means of voice and video communication to first responders during an emergency or even for something as harmless as needing a flat tire repaired.

The tough questions start popping up once the idea to deploy these is on the table. Here are some common questions asked:

  • How will implementation of a blue light solution impact our current operations and processes?
  • How many units should we have? What will our decision criteria be?
  • Where should they be placed? Near buildings? Far ends of parking areas? Along walking paths? In stairwells? How much distance between each if outdoors? 
  • What will the infrastructure and installation cost be? If we connect data using wireless, how will we get 24x7 power to the blue light system?
  • Should we include a security camera? If so, fixed. PTZ, or both?
  • Is there ample lighting in the area for cameras to see in color?
  • Should we have two different buttons on the device?  Emergency? Help? 
  • How does the audio and video integrate into our current security and communication solution?
  • Should there be a video screen on the blue light system for displaying campus directions or maps as well as for communicating with non-verbal users?

These are just a few of the questions asked of us during the risk assessment phase of our design and consulting process. If you're thinking about implementing blue lights or modifying your security and safety posture, be sure you have a plan that has been thoroughly researched and assessed by a qualified and expert consulting and engineering firm. With a professional physical security risk assessment, a reasonable and affordable deployment plan will be put in action, ensuring that students, staff, customers, and visitors are parking and walking in the safest environment possible.
