*Examples of Emergency Response System remote transmitter devices: (A Panic Button/Device) like “First Response,” or “First Alert,” but altered (to meet the scope of the facility needs, & local response team capabilities). This is a transmitter alert system warn by specific facility employees that will activate an alert when a button is depressed.
