The paper "Emergency Security Systems" is an outstanding example of a management research proposal. Security is a fundamental factor which should be guaranteed to every citizen. In the past security has been on the debate, where the population and the government have been trying to weigh options on the best methods of security enhancement to enhance. The government provides its security by placing its security personnel strategically at designated stations. However this security is not enough and that calls for alternative systems to enhance security, either at home or in offices. Emergency security systems are gadgets and procedures which are put in place to enhance security in case of an attempted breach.
This report seeks to expound on emergency security systems. Literature review According to Smith & Messina (2004), emergency security systems are implemented in homes and offices to ensure security. These systems range from alarm systems to intrusion tracking devices and fire detectors. Emergency security systems play a big role in the enhancement of national security. These systems are developed to have an automatic detection, of the security breach and have a way of notifying the authorities (Moore 2009).
This relieves the security personnel the work of watching over offices, banks and homes. Emergency security systems are important in the following ways; Property protection This is the main reason why emergency security systems are installed. They tend to scare away burglars and also alert the owner on a security breach early in advance (Saeed & Pejaś 2005). Fire protection These refer to fire alarms and smoke detectors which notify owners of a fire as it starts. There are also the heats detectors which detect a rise in temperature at a given place in a building, this helps show the exact position a fire starts.
Notifications by these devices give the occupants of the premises time to escape and to plan on actions to take in order to counter the fire (Saeed & Pejaś 2005). Protection from carbon poisoning-carbon monoxide poisoning involves the use of an odourless gas released from fuel combustion. Once picked up by the red blood cells in the body it inhibits oxygen intake and this can result in death after a few minutes.
Carbon poisoning is prevented by the use of carbon detectors which notifies occupants of a building of carbon gas presence in good time (Saeed & Pejaś 2005). Gives peace of mind-presence of an effective emergency security system put in place gives peace of mind. This is possible because the people occupying a certain premise know that in case of fire or burglar intrusion, they will be notified in time and be able to counter it and protect themselves. Saving on property owner’ s insurance-most of owners have an insurance policy put in place to ensure the security of their premises in case of an emergency.
These insurances cover most events like burglary attack, fire, hurricanes and other devastating events. These security systems early notifications allow necessary action to be taken to counter the risk and that minimizes the damages caused. Timely medical assistance-current security systems are installed in such a way that in case of any emergency, all one needs to do is to press a button and medical assistance is dispatched to assist. This is a great advantage of the current automated security systems. Record of information-current emergency security systems like CCTV cameras records all that takes place at the area where they are installed and stores all the information on their databases.
This information helps in cases of burglar attack where the security forces retrieve the relevant video tracks from the system and that enables them to piece in all what happened at the crime scene and probably be able to make arrests.
