The health department in Ohio needed ironclad security in the event of a public emergency.


“Brivo is integral to securing our records. This solution is ironclad. Upon evaluation of the Brivo system, the state gave us quick approval because we could demonstrate fulfillment of the mandate to increase records’ security”

Charles Hammer | Administrator | Athens City and County Health Department (ACCHD)


The ACCHD had a standard lock-and-key system and staff were painfully aware that if anyone stole a key or made a copy, he or she could get into the building at any time.

The security system was substandard for safeguarding its confidential health records

While staff was well-trained and communications improved, they still had a pressing security need

It was an unnecessary vulnerability, but ACCHD needed federal grants to upgrade


Simply Better Security with Brivo Onair

  • Brivo Onair offered the ironclad security needed for this first-response command center
  • Brivo system performance and security met the state requirements for critical record storage
  • In an emergency, the system could provide an audit trail for all command center personnel
  • The “always on” system, ease of use and full visibility provides valuable peace of mind


“The control with the Brivo system is superb. This was a very satisfying, dramatic leap in our use of technology. I find the system very user-friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend it.”
