We are interviewing Jared Therrien on today’s Show 051
Jared is the founder of Emergency Information Systems, LLC
The company offers decal and hardware products which increase the situational awareness of emergency responders throughout incidents in high-occupancy buildings.
What are we going to learn:
1) How Emergency Information Systems designs, develops and sells their products.
2) The importance of reducing emergency response times by providing missing information during an incident to responding personnel.
3) How to see a problem then ask yourself specific questions that will help your end user solve their issues!
4) How to find your customer
Our startup round:
1) Jared – In real estate, we hear that mantra: Location location location but location is not just for real estate apparently it is also the single most important piece of information that emergency response personnel need to know. Tell us about that –
2) how does the company solve this problem?
3) Manufacture process ? THE BEST MATERIALS
4) What is the WAYFINDER™ Safety System?
5) WINDOW APPLIQUES?
WAYFINDER™ Window Appliques are a stylish wayfinding option. Vinyl creates a modern look and makes a great addition to any renovation project. We use a reflective film to frost the entire window, and then cut large numbers out of the film. This option also increases privacy on ground-floor windows.
Windows are great points of access and egress for school buildings, but without proper markings, they cannot be used effectively during emergency situations. Campus security experts around the country recommend placing decals in classroom windows, indicating which window belongs to each classroom. This helps response crews to gather important information about the incident location and increase situational awareness, speeding egress from windows and operations overall.
REFLECTIVE NUMERAL DECALS?
WAYFINDER™ Reflective Numeral Decals are highly visible. They are the only inside-glass mount/interior-installation reflective decals on the market. High-intensity Prismatic film is used to increase visibility and durability, ensuring proper exterior wayfinding for your school for years to come.
Why WAYFINDER™ Decals?
Taking into account the principles of Environmental Graphic Design, which blends elements of interior, architectural, and wayfinding/navigational design, we have optimized our decals to best serve the functional needs of first responders and the aesthetic needs of the school customer.
HIGH VISIBILITY REFLECTIVE VINYL
Unlike many other existing options, WAYFINDER™ Reflective Numeral Decals and Window Appliques are reflective, ensuring maximum visibility at all times of the day and night, and in all weather conditions. Our decals are made of a premium-grade retro-reflective vinyl.
We proudly make all decal products out of the highest quality vinyl films and materials available on the market.
DURABLE & ATTRACTIVE
WAYFINDER™ Window Appliques provide a modern look to your school while increasing safety. These beautiful decals often outlast their 10-year rated life, resisting damage and fading caused by constant sunlight exposure. Strong, permanent adhesives prevent peeling and vandalism.
Funding & Grant Opportunities
Our goal at EIS is to reduce emergency response times and save lives. We know budgets are tight and funding is hard to come by. To make our school security and wayfinding products affordable for everyone, we price our products competitively. Additionally, we have prepared a list of School & Campus Security grants and funding resources to help offset costs. Be sure to check with your local and state governments for grant opportunities.

Inspirational + Motivational Show
By Jared Therrien
“I started ‘listening up’ when I heard a few Drexel classmates and professors were interviewed by Mitchell. After listening to their stories, I ended up listening to over 20+ episodes while driving to job sites for my own start-up. Hearing other entrepreneurs’ stories and struggles are extremely motivating. The show makes you think critically about your own journey. I have applied the advice learned on this show to my business and will surely continue to listen.”
