Library Emergency Response Solutions
Libraries are essential community resources that serve as learning, research, and community engagement centers. In times of crisis, libraries are critical in providing support to their communities.
Premier delivers cutting-edge technology solutions to support library emergency response efforts. Smart Phones can be used to access response plans, and text messaging can be used to communicate with patrons and staff during an emergency. Libraries can use text alerts to provide updates, share information, and provide instructions on how to respond, and VoIP allows for communication continuity. Push-To-Talk Radios can be used for faster and more efficient group communications. Premier's Library Emergency Response solutions provide mobile internet access, backup connectivity, and temporary connectivity. By using mobile hotspots, mobile phones, text alerts, mobile apps, and GPS tracking, libraries can ensure they are prepared to respond quickly and effectively to emergencies and communicate effectively with patrons, staff, and emergency responders.
We are committed to working closely with libraries to provide customized technology solutions that meet their specific needs and enhance their emergency response capabilities. Plus, we can help you identify grants to help you fund your initiatives.
Library Checkout Program
The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed how libraries operate and given them the ability to respond to future emergencies. Many libraries pivoted to offer curbside pick-up and online services to ensure access to resources while maintaining social distancing guidelines.
In this new landscape, there has been an increased demand for digital devices such as laptops, tablets, and hotspots. Many students and families do not have access to the technology needed for remote learning and other online services.
Digital devices promote digital literacy and innovation. They help patrons develop the skills they need to navigate a digital world and provide them with the tools and resources to explore new ideas, create new content, and express themselves creatively.
Our digital device checkout program solutions offer libraries an easy and efficient way to manage their device lending programs, ensuring that resources are available to those who need them the most.
Our goal is to provide libraries with the tools they need to bridge the digital divide, create equity, and empower their communities with access to technology and information, regardless of their location or circumstances.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many libraries had to close their physical spaces to prevent the spread of the virus.
By extending their Wi-Fi signal to their parking lots, libraries were able to provide a safe and socially distanced way for patrons to access online resources and services and are now equipped to do so again in the event of another pandemic or other emergency.
In addition, many library patrons do not have reliable internet access at home, making it difficult to access online resources and complete digital tasks.
By installing Premier's ConnectED Campus Library cellular solution as a stand-alone Wi-Fi network inside and outside of their buildings, libraries can provide patrons with a reliable internet connection that they can access inside the library or from the parking lot, in their cars.
The ConnectED Campus Library solution offers a reliable and high-speed connection for patrons while keeping the library's network separate and secure.
Our goal is to empower libraries to close the digital divide effectively, serve their communities better, and ensure that their patrons have access to the information and resources they need during times of crisis.
Air Quality Monitoring
Several studies show that when CO2 levels double within an indoor environment, the risk of COVID-19 infection doubles as well. Therefore, air quality became highly critical during the global pandemic.
The ability to track carbon dioxide levels indoors is an economical and effective way to monitor the risk of people getting COVID-19 and other illnesses.
Premier Wireless's Air Quality Monitoring solution helps maintain safe CO2 levels and improves air quality. By measuring CO2 levels with air quality sensors, you can quickly detect potentially infectious air. This allows libraries to operate safely and continue to provide access to critical resources for their patrons.
During emergencies, it is crucial to accurately understand the number of people in a building to ensure their safety and well-being.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, occupancy monitoring took on a new level of importance. Social distancing guidelines require organizations to limit the number of people inside their facilities at any time.
Premier's occupancy monitoring solutions provide real-time data on the number of occupants in a building, enabling libraries to maintain compliance with social distancing guidelines and limit the spread of the virus.
Our advanced technology utilizes sensors and analytics to provide accurate and reliable occupancy data, helping to minimize response times and ensure that emergency personnel has the information they need to make informed decisions during critical situations.
Our goal is to provide organizations with the tools they need to ensure the safety and well-being of their occupants during all types of emergencies.
