SECURITY MAPS

What are Security Maps?

Security maps show a higher degree of detail than standard floor plans. This information is valuable for ‘table-top’ planning or training for a security event. These maps could also be used during an actual security event. Security maps are typically created in conjunction with fire evacuation maps but show a different variety and level of information detail. These maps are not for public display.
