Emergencies can come at a moment’s notice, which is why commercial real estate teams must equip themselves with the proper tools to respond. Enter Genea Muster Reports. A muster report is a detailed roster used during emergencies like active shooter situations, fires, earthquakes and more.
When combined with an access control system, muster reports help better pinpoint who is in a building and the individual’s last known access location. See how you can enhance your emergency plan with Genea Access Control + Muster Reports.
How Muster Reports Used?
Commercial real estate teams commonly use muster reports to account for the people in their buildings. For example, if a fire happens on the fifth floor of an office building, the property manager may wish to use a muster report. They can view which tenants badged into the fifth-floor offices that day. If the fire forces an evacuation, then the property manager can ensure every person on the fifth floor is accounted for and safe.
Schools and universities use muster reporting as well. During an active shooter incident, using these logs can save lives. If, after conducting a head count, anybody is still missing, security personnel can check the cameras integrated into the access control system. This can help identify and locate the missing person.
What’s a Muster Point?
A muster point is a designated area where all employees, guests and visitors assemble when an emergency occurs. These areas help administrators, building managers, law enforcement and rescue workers properly account for people belonging to their facilities.
Considerations for Muster Points
When it comes to implementing Muster Reports, one of the most important decisions is choosing which doors to include as muster points. Administrators must consider several factors, including:
1. The type of potential emergencies
2. Building architecture
3. Ingress and egress within the facility
Consider these points when devising an overall security plan for your facility. Learn how our customers are using features like Genea Emergency Plans to prepare for emergencies.
