What are Security Maps?
Security maps are highly detailed maps used by internal staff to prepare for and respond to emergency situations. With a higher degree of detail than standard floor plans, security maps are a valuable tool for training security personnel, planning events, and quickly responding to emergencies.
Who Will Use a Security Map?
Security Maps are often used by building security and local police departments. Security maps should not be available for public viewing. Instead, they are used by internal staff to plan for and respond to security threats, and are useful for training exercises or planning security for large events. In the event of an emergency, security maps help guide evacuations, implement a lockdown, or lead emergency personnel through a building.
Although not typically a state or local requirement, security maps are becoming a standard feature across many industries. Publicly accessible buildings with a constant volume of guests or employees commonly utilize these maps for training security staff and planning event security. Buildings that may benefit from a security map include schools, manufacturing plants, retail spaces, office complexes, event venues, banks, hospitals, and law enforcement offices.
