Upper Iowa University Partners With Northern Ireland Firm On Revolutionary Installation To Enhance Safety On Fayette Campus

Walker and Patterson said the UIU campus in Fayette will become a demonstration site that officials for other universities and organizations can visit to see Lightstep Technology in action.

"We look forward to seeing this exciting order progress over the coming months – this is a huge opportunity for Lightstep to bring the highest standards in evacuation systems to this vast marketplace," Patterson said. "It's an exciting time for Lightstep, with the team also due to attend the Fire Excellence Awards 2011 on May 17. The awards celebrate the best products, services and individuals in the fire safety industry, and Lightstep is shortlisted for the 'Best Means of Escape' product."

Walker noted that the three newest UIU buildings, which were completed in 2010-11, will be retrofitted with the technology – the new student residence hall, the Liberal Arts Building, and the Student Center. Installation is scheduled for this fall.

"Working as partners with Lightstep to launch this technology in the United States has helped us defray costs and make the technology more affordable for UIU," Walker added.  

Although Lightstep technology has not been introduced previously in the United States, Patterson said the technology is also being installed in non-academic facilities in India and the Middle East.

"Lightstep is an unprecedented safety technology, and we believe Upper Iowa University is taking the right step toward ensuring student safety," Walker added. "UIU is setting the standard for what safety should look like in colleges and universities around the world."
