Summertime Park Safety


Summer is the season for people to flock to parks - from community to amusement and everything in between. They offer wholesome family fun, but are they truly safe? GAI-TRONICS emergency phones and help points can increase the safety and security of these popular summer destinations, enhancing their reputations and in turn, increasing visitor count. Positive reviews about safety can go a long way in today’s digital world!


Public parks come in all shapes and sizes and are a vital part of communities across the United States, with many offering long walking or running paths in secluded areas. These environments, while scenic and peaceful, may not offer good cellular reception. When you have a setting that provides seclusion without effective means of communication, it can present an ideal opportunity for predatory behavior. Visitors would undoubtedly feel more secure in taking an evening stroll or going for a run if they had the option of calling for help if necessary with the installation of emergency towers and emergency phones throughout park grounds. Parks also tend to be frequented by both small children and elderly citizens, two population segments that can be prone to medical emergencies, making the installation of one of the top emergency notification systems by GAI-TRONICS even more attractive.


Another type of park that’s popular for summer fun is the waterpark. Thousands of people waiting in long lines, walking on slippery surfaces and swimming in pools on a hot day creates a myriad of opportunities for emergency situations to present themselves. A well-built emergency notification system goes a long way in these parks! Our systems are perfect when something a bit more robust is definitely in order, as all hardware used to build our products is made of stainless steel which reduces corrosion in a wet, chlorine-rich atmosphere. We recommend a mix of emergency call boxes and emergency towers equipped with emergency phones (NEMA 4x available) throughout park grounds and NEMA 4x handset telephones located at ride entry points to communicate valuable information including mechanical failures, stop ride or information regarding delays or wait time in line. Combine these products with HUBBCOM™ IP Devices for security rooms, gate or door entry points and offices. Add strobes, speakers and a Network PA/GA system with failsafe operation like our Elemec 3 and you’ve got robust, reliable security and communication that lasts season after season.


Lastly, we’ll take a look the traditional amusement park that’s full of visitors, rides, games and food. With the large amount of ride operators and supervisors spread across miles of park who need to communicate with each other, HUBBCOM IP Devices are an obvious choice to keep zoned lines of communication open and park visitors safe. In addition to the point-to-point and SIP telephone features that enhance communication between park staff members, these devices also boast wide-angle cameras and have the ability to tie into existing video monitoring systems in order to maintain visitor safety and keep operations running smoothly. Speaking of keeping things running smoothly, let’s not forget about park maintenance staff. Behind the scenes and sometimes even underground, these team members need to communicate with each other to keep operations seamless for the public-facing areas. An ideal product line for this sometimes harsh & hazardous environment would be our tried-and-true paging system using SP2 handset stations for VoIP capability. This station also offers intercom access in case an emergency were to occur or a mass-notification announcement needed to be made.


GAI-TRONICS is the world's largest company focused on the communication needs of the most challenging global industrial markets. While maintaining our commitment to quality and service for more than 70 years, we apply leading-edge technology to solve communication challenges on a global scale. Backed by the stability, reputation and financial strength of Hubbell Inc., we remain rugged, reliable & recognizable.
