The Buy American Act (BAA) passed in 1933 by Congress and signed by President Hoover requires the United States government to prefer U.S.-made products in its purchases. Other pieces of Federal legislation extend similar requirements to third-party purchases that utilize Federal funds, such as highway and transit programs.

The Trade Agreements Act (TAA) is an Act of Congress that governs trade agreements negotiated between the United States and other countries under the Trade Act of 1974. It fosters the growth and maintenance of an open world trading system and expand opportunities for the commerce of the United States in international trade.

Make Sure Your System Meets Intelligibility Standards

With new regulations in place, it is critically important that your voice communication system meets intelligibly standards and confirms announcements were sent.

Within the NFPA 72 (National Fire Protection Association), specific requirements for communication must be met. Specifically a Mass Notification and EVAC system must provide for Acoustically Distinguishable Spaces (ADS) as well as meet the Sound Transmission Index for Public Address (STI-PA.) Together, these performance standards help to achieve “intelligibility” and another requirements within NFPA72.

An AtlasIED system exceeds these standards by:

  • Pre-assembled, highly-intelligible announcements.
  • Automation for multiple announcements to be sent simultaneously into separate zones.
  • Environment noise analysis that adjusts the sound level in real-time based upon environment noise and ensure the level is high enough to be heard without being annoying too loud.
  • System supervision that monitors the systems integrity and reports any faults.
  • Announcement logging to confirm messages were sent.

Emergency Preparedness Plan

Government facilties live in a world of unknowns with critical events and emergency scenarios happening daily. Your staff can do their best to be prepared with numerous practice drills. When seconds count, all the preparation can not verify the human responders can achieve their task when critical events happen.
