Alarm Response Admin

This section includes support for Managers with the Alarm Response Admin role enabled. This role allows permission to create and edit Alarm Response Information such as escalation plans, instructions, and locations.

How to add a new escalation plan for your team


Before adding an escalation plan, first check your team on the team's page for any existing plans. If the plan cannot be updated, create a new plan then assign this to your team. 

As an Alarm Response Admin, you have permission to make changes to your teams escalation plan. Escalation plans are essential to the Peoplesafe service, as they indicate who can support our Alarm Reing Centre when managing your team members' alarms and incidents. 

It is important to understand how escalation plans work before making any changes:
