Code Blue Celebrates 30 Years of Safety And Security
HOLLAND, MICHIGAN (March 19, 2019): Code Blue Corporation’s No. 1 goal in the future remains the same as it was on our first day: Your safety.
Founded in 1989, Code Blue is pleased to be celebrating its 30th anniversary as the industry leading manufacturer of emergency communication solutions.
Code Blue was founded when the University of Illinois at Chicago selected our new signature design from several candidates for a project that involved the installation of security standards on campus. From there, the trademarked cylindrical pedestal that is now commonly known as the “Blue Light Emergency Phone” was born, and it remains a security standard at thousands of education, corporate, hospital, airport and municipal locations around the world.
“Our goal remains the same for the future: provide increased levels of flexibility, scalability and interoperability without sacrificing the reliability and durability that is synonymous with the Code Blue brand,” CEO David Cook said. “We want to use our 30 years of experience to help locations continue to enjoy the value of safety and security.”
Over the years, Code Blue has greatly expanded its product line to adapt to the shifting technological landscape. That includes embracing the popularity of IP technology, which can be seen in Centry®, our newest Help Point® that integrates an IP color camera into the faceplate.
It’s the latest in a long line of moves designed to strengthen Code Blue’s position in the security industry and advance with the ever-changing needs of its customers. In 1997, for example, Code Blue developed its first hands-free analog emergency speakerphone, and in 2010 launched its IP speakerphone line. The ToolVox® Media Gateway made its debut in 2009, while Blue Alert® MNS (Mass Notification System) was released in 2013.
