Communications Electronics Joins the Safer Buildings Coalition

Communications Electronics (CE) is pleased to announce its recent membership with the Safer Buildings Coalition. As a leading in-building integrator in the Mid-Atlantic, CE is committed to providing reliable in-building connectivity for Public Safety and mobile phone communications.  Along with our Land Mobile Radio and Intelligent Transportation System divisions, we excel at providing reliable solutions for mission critical data and communications.

The Safer Buildings Coalition is an independent, not-for-profit organization providing thought leadership and education focused on advancing policies, ideas, and technologies that ensure effective in-building communications capabilities for public safety personnel and the people they serve.

The Safer Buildings Coalition focuses on ensuring that every manner of communication inside buildings that would be useful during an emergency is available and functions correctly, when and where needed:

  • Public must be able to dial 911 and be quickly and accurately located
  • Mass Notification Texts must be received
  • First Responder Communications, Including Land Mobile Radio and Smartphone / Cellular enabled services, must function where and when needed

“Safer Buildings Coalition relies on industry leaders like Communications Electronics to provide best of breed subject matter expertise to our work efforts”, said John Foley, General Manager for the Safer Buildings Coalition. “We are enormously grateful for the commitment and support of our members, and we are very excited to have access to the unique skill sets and knowledge that Communications Electronics offers our Community of Practice.”

Michael Cassell, CE’s In-Building CTO adds “We are so excited to partner with the Safer Buildings Coalition simply because we share a common mission – to connect people in the moments that matter.  Partnering with the Coalition allows us to work with like-minded organizations to use current wireless communications technologies to serve our communities. We look forward to working with Safer Buildings Coalition and all of our partners to make a difference for emergency responders.”

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread in the United States and across the globe, we want to let everyone know that Communications Electronics’number one priority is to keep our employees, partners, and customers safe. Here is an update on preparations and steps we have taken to date. Two weeks ago, CE assembled a cross-disciplinary COVID-19 Management Team to actively monitor the situation and make recommendations to leadership. We have been assessing the situation daily, remaining vigilant, and following recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local authorities. We’ve assembled guidance for our employee teams, pursuant to these recommendations.

As you know, the situation is evolving rapidly, and COVID-19 is affecting people differently, depending on their location and situation. As a result, flexible solutions are needed. CE Senior Management is considering all options, including the possibility of asking staff to work remotely.

While we remain focused on the health and safety of our staff and those around us, we also remain committed to serving our customers. Fortunately, we have technology in place and significant experience with working remotely. We have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure we can continue to deliver uninterrupted, high quality service. Operational teams have been working to identify potential needs and strategies associated with full-virtual delivery of services. Project managers and supervisors are actively having preparedness discussions with our teams. Our IT team has been reviewing and testing systems and protocols, to ensure necessary tools and support for staff to operate virtually. Everyone has a role to play.

If you have questions or feedback, you can reach the COVID-19 Management Team at Safety@Talkcei.com.

Being flexible and able to overcome big challenges is part of what makes us who we are. We have the infrastructure, skills, and desire to support each other, while providing the highest level of service to our customers. Obviously, this is a fast moving, fluid situation affecting our country and the world. We will update our guidance and decisions as the situation changes. Please continue to monitor the CDC Website for updates.

We hope that you and your family are well,
