FRIDAY - AUGUST 31, 2007 - ISSUE NO. 276

Dear Friends of Wireless Messaging,

In researching various topics for today's newsletter, I used Google to search for “emergency communications.” I was pleasantly surprised to find many articles about new Emergency Communications Systems being recently installed. Unfortunately, paging was not mentioned in most of them. A summary of my ranting a raving about the advantages of radio paging technology for emergency alerting is located here: Critical Messaging. left arrow Let's keep telling everyone who will listen about the advantages of our technology. It's not over unless we quit.

I have been appealing for new advertising since I lost several ads recently. Well I got a new one this week. It is from Critical Response Systems and it immediately follows below. This is really a great ad. It required me to learn some new techniques for Internet web-page programming but it was worth the trouble. I can enthusiastically recommend this company for Two-way Paging Equipment—both the infrastructure and the messaging devices. For those of you who know me, and for others who may be in doubt, I would not do this if I didn't really believe in what I am saying. I have often said, “my time is for hire, but my opinions are not.”

Now on to more news and views. . .

A new issue of The Wireless Messaging Newsletter gets posted on the web each week. A notification goes out by e-mail to subscribers on most Fridays around noon central US time. The notification message has a link to the actual newsletter on the Internet. That way it doesn't fill up your incoming e-mail account.

There is no charge for subscription and there are no membership restrictions. Readers are a very select group of wireless industry professionals, and include the senior managers of many of the world's major Paging and Wireless Data companies. There is an even mix of operations managers, marketing people, and engineers—so I try to include items of interest to all three groups. It's all about staying up-to-date with business trends and technology. I regularly get readers' comments, so this newsletter has become a community forum for the Paging, and Wireless Data communities. You are welcome to contribute your ideas and opinions. Unless otherwise requested, all correspondence addressed to me is subject to publication in the newsletter and on my web site. I am very careful to protect the anonymity of those who request it.

* CSD Circuit Switched Data is the original form of data transmission developed for the time division multiple access (TDMA)-based mobile phone systems like Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM). CSD uses a single radio time slot to deliver 9.6 kbit/s data transmission to the GSM Network and Switching Subsystem where it could be connected through the equivalent of a normal modem to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) allowing direct calls to any dial-up service. (Wikipedia) * CSD (del inglés Circuit Switched Data). Es una tecnología de conexión de datos alternativa al GPRS. Una conexión CSD es considerada una "llamada de datos". Es muy similar a una llamada de voz, pero con la codificación/decodificación (codecs) de voz desactivados. Ocupa el mismo ancho de banda que una llamada por voz.

Atom clusters could store thousands of movies, says IBM

By Wolfgang Gruener
Thursday, August 30, 2007 16:29

San Jose (CA) – IBM researchers today said that they were able to probe magnetic anisotropy in individual atoms, potentially opening the development of a new kind of data storage devices. In another announcement, the company unveiled a single-molecule switch that is expected to lead the way toward smaller, faster and more energy-efficient semiconductors.

According to IBM, technologies described today (with further details being provided in two papers scheduled for publication in Science tomorrow) could be significant milestones in developing single-atom data storage devices and molecular computers.

In its first report, IBM scientists describe progress in probing a property called magnetic anisotropy in individual atoms. This fundamental measurement is believed to have a substantial impact on technology as it determines an atom’s ability to store information. Previously, nobody had been able to measure the magnetic anisotropy of a single atom. Down the road, the company believes that it may be possible to build structures consisting of small clusters of atoms (or individual atoms) that could store magnetic information.

And, according to IBM, this technology could provide lots of storage capacity: "Nearly" 30,000 feature length movies or the entire contents of YouTube could fit in a device the size of an iPod, the firm said.

The development could also lead to "new kinds of structures and devices that are so small they could be applied to entire new fields and disciplines beyond traditional computing."

In their second report, IBM researchers outline the first single-molecule switch that is claimed to be able to operate flawlessly without disrupting the molecule's outer frame, which is a step toward building molecule-sized computing elements that are expected to be substantially smaller, faster and use less energy than today's computer chips and memory devices – IBM is envisioning these devices to be as fast as today's supercomputer

Switches inside computer chips act like a light switch to turn the flow of electrons on and off and, when put together, make up the logic gates, which in turn make up electrical circuits. Having ever smaller switches allows the circuits to be shrunk to ever smaller sizes, making it possible to pack more circuits into a processor and boosting speed and performance, the company said.

IBM did not indicate when these technologies could be commercially available.

The Virginia Tech panel's recommendations

Friday, August 31, 2007

The panel issued more than 70 recommendations in its 11-chapter report. Most of them are listed here, though they have been edited to fit in the available space. For the full report, see the links at left. [On this page.]

Emergency planning

Universities should do a risk analysis (threat assessment) and then choose a level of security appropriate for their campus.

Virginia Tech should update and enhance its Emergency Response Plan and bring it into compliance with federal and state guidelines.

Virginia Tech and other institutions of higher learning should have a threat assessment team that includes representatives from law enforcement, human resources, student and academic affairs, legal counsel and mental health functions.

Students, faculty, and staff should be trained annually about responding to various emergencies and about the notification systems that will be used.

Universities and colleges must comply with the Clery Act, which requires timely public warnings of imminent danger.

Campus alerting

Campus emergency communications systems must have multiple means of sharing information.

In an emergency, immediate messages must be sent to the campus community that provide clear information on the nature of the emergency and actions to be taken.

Campus police as well as administration officials should have the authority and capability to send an emergency message.

Police training

The head of campus police should be a member of a threat assessment team as well as the emergency response team for the university.

Campus police must report directly to the senior operations officer responsible for emergency decision-making.

Campus police must train for active shooters (as did the Virginia Tech Police Department).

The mission statement of campus police should give primacy to their law enforcement and crime prevention role.

Cho's mental health

Universities should recognize their responsibility to a young, vulnerable population and promote the sharing of information internally, and with parents, when significant circumstances pertaining to health and safety arise.

Institutions of higher learning should review and revise their current policies related to: a) recognizing and assisting students in distress; b) the student code of conduct, including enforcement; c) judiciary proceedings for students, including enforcement; d) university authority to appropriately intervene when it is believed a distressed student poses a danger to himself or others.

Universities must have a system that links troubled students to appropriate medical and counseling services either on or off campus, and to balance the individual's rights with the rights of all others for safety.

Incidents of aberrant, dangerous, or threatening behavior must be documented and reported immediately to a college's threat assessment group, and must be acted upon in a prompt and effective manner to protect the safety of the campus community.

Culturally competent mental health services were provided to Cho at his school and in his community. Adequate resources must be allocated for systems of care in schools and communities that provide culturally competent services for children and adolescents to reduce mental illness-related risk as occurred within this community.

Policies and procedures should be implemented to require professors encountering aberrant, dangerous, or threatening behavior from a student to report them to the dean.

Reporting requirements for aberrant, dangerous, or threatening behavior and incidents for resident hall staff must be clearly established and reviewed during annual training.

Repeated incidents of aberrant, dangerous, or threatening behavior must be reported by Judicial Affairs to the threat assessment group.

Repeated incidents of aberrant, dangerous, or threatening behavior should be reported to the counseling center and reported to parents.

The law enforcement agency at colleges should report all incidents of an issuance of temporary detention orders for students (and staff) to Judicial Affairs, the threat assessment team, the counseling center and parents.

The college counseling center should report all students who are in treatment pursuant to a court order to the threat assessment team.

The state should study what level of community outpatient service capacity will be required to meet the needs of the commonwealth and the related costs in order to adequately and appropriately respond to both involuntary court-ordered and voluntary referrals for those services.

Virginia's code should be amended to extend the time periods for temporary detention to permit more thorough mental health evaluations.

Virginia's code should be amended to authorize magistrates to issue temporary detention orders based upon evaluations conducted by emergency physicians trained to perform emergency psychiatric evaluations.

The criteria for involuntary commitment in Virginia's code should be modified in order to promote more consistent application of the standard and to allow involuntary treatment in a broader range of cases involving severe mental illness.

The number and capacity of secure crisis stabilization units should be expanded where needed in Virginia to ensure that individuals who are subject to a temporary detention order do not need to wait for an available bed.

The role and responsibilities of the independent evaluator in the commitment process should be clarified.

The Virginia code should be amended to require the presence of the pre-screener or other Community Services Board representative at all commitment hearings.

The independent evaluator, if not present in person, and treating physician should be available when possible if needed for questioning during the hearing.

The Virginia Health Records Privacy statute should be amended to provide a safe harbor provision that would protect health entities and providers from liability or loss of funding when they disclose information in connection with evaluations and commitment hearings.

Virginia Health Records Privacy and Virginia code should be amended to ensure that all entities involved with treatment have full authority to share records with each other and all involved in the involuntary commitment process while providing the legal safeguards needed to prevent unwarranted breaches of confidentiality.

Virginia code should be amended to clarify:

  • The need for specificity in involuntary outpatient orders.
  • The appropriate recipients of certified copies of orders.
  • The party responsible for certifying copies of orders.
  • The party responsible for reporting noncompliance with outpatient orders and to whom noncompliance is reported.
  • The mechanism for returning the noncompliant person to court.
  • The sanction(s) to be imposed on the noncompliant person who does not pose an imminent danger to himself or others.
  • The respective responsibilities of the detaining facility, the Community Services Board, and the outpatient treatment provider in assuring effective implementation of involuntary outpatient treatment orders.

Information privacy

Accurate guidance should be developed by the attorney general of Virginia regarding the application of information privacy laws to the behavior of troubled students.

Privacy laws should be revised to include "safe harbor" provisions.

The following amendments to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act should be considered: FERPA should explicitly explain how it applies to medical records held for treatment purposes; FERPA should make explicit an exception regarding treatment records; The Department of Education should allow more flexibility in FERPA's "emergency" exception.

Schools should ensure that law enforcement and medical staff (and others as necessary) are designated as school officials with an educational interest in school records.

The Commonwealth of Virginia Commission on Mental Health Reform should study whether the result of a commitment hearing (whether the subject was voluntarily committed, involuntarily committed, committed to outpatient therapy, or released) should also be publicly available despite an individual's request for confidentiality.

The national higher education associations should develop best practice protocols and associated training for information sharing.

Gun purchases

All states should report information necessary to conduct federal background checks on gun purchases.

Virginia should require background checks for all firearms sales, including those at gun shows.

Anyone found to be a danger to themselves or others by a court-ordered review should be entered in the Central Criminal Records Exchange database regardless of whether they voluntarily agreed to treatment.

The existing attorney general's opinion regarding the authority of universities and colleges to ban guns on campus should be clarified immediately.

The Virginia General Assembly should adopt legislation in the 2008 session clearly establishing the right of every institution of higher education in the commonwealth to regulate the possession of firearms on campus if it so desires.

Universities and colleges should make clear in their literature what their policy is regarding weapons on campus.

Murders in the dorm

In the preliminary stages of an investigation, the police should resist focusing on a single theory and communicating that to decision makers.

All key facts should be included in an alerting message, and it should be disseminated as quickly as possible, with explicit information.

Recipients of emergency messages should be urged to inform others.

Universities should have multiple communication systems, including some not dependent on high technology.

Plans for canceling classes or closing the campus should be included in the university's emergency operations plan.

Murders at Norris Hall

Campus police everywhere should train with local police departments on response to active shooters and other emergencies.

Dispatchers should be cautious when giving advice or instructions by phone to people in a shooting or facing other threats without knowing the situation.

Police should escort survivors out of buildings, where circumstances and manpower permit.

Schools should check the hardware on exterior doors to ensure that they are not subject to being chained shut.

Take bomb threats seriously. Students and staff should report them immediately, even if most do turn out to be false alarms.

Emergency services

Montgomery County should develop a countywide emergency medical services, fire, and law enforcement communications center.

A unified command post should be established and operated based on the National Incident Management System Incident Command System model.

An emergency operations center must be activated early during a mass casualty incident.

Regional disaster drills should be held on an annual basis.

The Western Virginia Emergency Medical Services Council should review/revise the Multi-Casualty Incident Medical Control and the Regional Hospital Coordinating Center functions.

Chief medical examiner

The chief medical examiner should not be performing the postmortem exams in mass casualty events; the chief medical examiner should be managing the overall response.

The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services should mandate training for law enforcement officers on death notifications.

The office of the chief medical examiner should participate in disaster or national security drills and exercises to plan and train for effects of a mass fatality situation on medical examiner operations.

Immediate aftermath

Emergency management plans should include a section on victim services that addresses the significant impact of homicide and other disaster-caused deaths on survivors and the role of victim service providers in the overall plan.

Universities and colleges should ensure that they have adequate plans to stand up a joint information center with a public information officer and adequate staff during major incidents on campus.

When a family assistance center is created after a criminal mass casualty event, victim advocates should be called immediately to assist the victims and their families.

Regularly scheduled briefings should be provided to victims' families as to the status of the investigation.

Short- and long-term counseling should be made available to first responders, students, staff, faculty members, university leaders, and the staff of The Inn at Virginia Tech.

Training in crisis management is needed at universities and colleges.

Law enforcement agencies should ensure that they have a victim services section or identified individual trained and skilled to respond directly and immediately to the needs of victims of crime from within the department.

Universities and colleges should create a victim assistance capability either in-house or through linkages to county-based professional victim assistance providers.

University of Pennsylvania Implements Emergency Notification System

university pa Aug 27, 2007, News Report
MIR3 has implemented inEnterprise, a unified, multi-modal emergency communication system, at the University of Pennsylvania. With support for all types of voice- and text-based communication devices, inEnterprise provides two-way notifications and instructions to students, staff and parents during critical events.

"inEnterprise ensures communications during an emergency, no matter what type of device a person has at hand and even if one communication channel is jammed," said Amir Moussavian, MIR3 president and CEO. "Its two-way functionality lets recipients acknowledge they've received an alert, so that first responders can track responses and react accordingly. By implementing inEnterprise, the University of Pennsylvania has taken a critical step toward ensuring communication and accountability to students and staff as well as to parents, off-campus law enforcement agencies and other external organizations."

According to the company, MIR3's enterprise-grade platform was chosen for its functionality, cost, redundancy and security and for its successful deployment at several universities, as well as hundreds of Fortune 500 companies and government agencies such as the Pentagon, the Air Force and NASA.

"Emergency communications are a challenge at a university such as ours, which has widely dispersed campuses and decentralized departments with diverse requirements," said Maureen S. Rush, vice president for public safety, University of Pennsylvania. "We looked carefully at several solutions that would meet everyone's needs, and only MIR3's emergency notification platform met all our requirements."

The University of Pennsylvania, which is comprised of three campuses, 16 schools, nearly 24,000 students, and more than 20,000 staff and faculty, cited several features that were key to the selection of the MIR3 emergency notification platform:

  • Unlimited communication devices per user to support all options used by today's technology-savvy students.
  • Two-way messages for both voice and data to allow the university to track notifications and quickly determine who is safe and who needs help.
  • A Message Bulletin Board feature that lets users call into a central number to obtain updates about the status of an event.
  • A fully hosted, redundant system that is located at three separate centers throughout the United States.
  • A unified approach for contacting parents using emergency contact data.
  • Robust data protection and security features to ensure user privacy and compliance with federal regulations.
  • A strong Application Program Interface (API) to automate the sharing of users' emergency notification information with the university's master database.

inEnterprise bridges the gap between all standard forms of communication to enable high-speed two-way communications to tens of thousands of users and devices across all modalities, including email, wireless pager, PDA, landline, mobile phone, satellite phone, TDD/TTY, fax and two-way text messaging. It can also be used for routine high-volume messaging and all-purpose broadcasting such as administrative notices to university staff, messages for coordinating faculty and schedules, and delivering information and receiving responses from students and parents that can be monitored and reported on.

nighthawk logo





Nighthawk Systems Inc. manufactures low cost and reliable remote control products for fire house alerting, volunteer alerting, activation of warning signs and sirens, and a number of applications for public safety.  The Company manufactures the EA1 and the FAS-8 which have been designed specifically for these applications.  Both products are paging based and will work with any public or private paging network.  They are available in all VHF, UHF, and 900 MHz paging frequencies.  The products can serve as the primary notification system or an excellent, low-cost backup to existing systems.

Public Emergency Notification & Volunteer Alerting

The EA1 is the solution for remotely activating public warning signage.  Examples include tornado sirens, flash flood warnings, fire danger, Amber Alert, icy roads, etc.  The EA1 can also send text messages to scrolling signs.  This can occur in conjunction with the activation of audible alarms and visual strobes.  This is ideal for public notification in buildings, schools, hotels, factories, etc. The group call feature allows for any number of signs or flashing lights to be activated at the same time over a wide geographic area.  In addition, the EA1 Emergency Alert is the perfect solution for low cost yet highly effective alerting of volunteer fire fighters in their home.  When activated the EA1 will emit an audible alarm and activate the power outlet on the units faceplate.  A common setup is to simply place the EA1 on a table and plug a lamp into the faceplate.  When paged from dispatch or any touch tone phone the EA1 will awaken the fire fighter to a lit room.  As an option the EA1 can be ordered with a serial cable, allowing for attachment of a serial printer.  When paged the alphanumeric message will be printed out at the same time the alarm sounds and the outlet is activated.  The EA1 is an ideal complement to alphanumeric belt pagers common to volunteers.

nighthawk sign

Firehouse Automation

The FAS-8 is designed for activating one or more relays in a firehouse and if desired, printing the alphanumeric message to a serial printer.  For this application the FAS-8 is set to activate upon receiving the proper paging cap code sent from 911 dispatch.  Up to eight different devices can be activated all with individual time functions.  The most common devices to turn on include the PA amplifier, audible wake up alarm, and house lights.  The most common device turned off is the stove.  The FAS-8 can accept up to 8 different cap codes and have separate relay and time functions per cap code.  This allows for different alerting to be accomplished at the same physical location depending upon which cap code is sent.  This can be very helpful when fire crews and medical crews are housed in the same building.

MSU offers emergency text system

Stanton Tang

Created: 8/28/2007 12:35:25 PM
Updated: 8/28/2007 12:57:53 PM

East Lansing — Michigan State University has a new system to keep students, faculty and parents better informed in times of campus emergencies.

The system will send text messages to mobile devices that students register with the university.

An MSU spokesperson tells WZZM 13 News that President Lou Anna Simon brought up the idea of a text notification system more than a year ago, before the Virginia Tech shooting and the murder of a student on the campus of Eastern Michigan University.

Here is the text from MSU's message to its students:


Email message from MSU President Lou Anna Simon

Your safety at MSU is a primary concern for the university. As we begin this academic year, I want to make you aware of a new emergency communication system available to the MSU community.

As part of our commitment to continuously improve communication with students, faculty, and staff, I asked the MSU Police Department to develop a text message system to alert the community in the event of a potential or emerging life-threatening situation. The system is now operational and will serve as a valuable source of information for everyone on and around campus in the event of an emergency.

The Emergency Text Message Notification System will only be utilized in limited emergency situations that require immediate action on the part of community members. It will briefly explain the emergency and the requested action. Follow-up communications will be disseminated via email, Reverse 911, radio, television, and the MSU Web site

You may enroll in the Emergency Text Message Notification System by going to the MSU Police website at and clicking on the heading "Emergency Text Messaging Enrollment" at the top of the web page.

You may enroll a total of four wireless devices on the system, which may include family members' devices. This site also contains additional information about emergency management and communications at MSU.

Please take the time to enroll for this valuable service and share this information with family members or others who would like to be informed if an emergency situation arises in our community.

I look forward to a wonderful and safe year at MSU.

Lou Anna K. Simon, Ph.D.
