Enhance On-Site Coordination for Emergencies
When a tragedy strikes, schools cannot afford a delay in notifying 9-1-1 and others on-site. 9-1-1 serves as incident command and can dispatch proper resources to respond to the scene and initiate real-time communication with school personnel. Empower school staff to get immediate help and instantly provide 9-1-1 with incident details, floor plans and other key facility data. Appropriate personnel can also follow up with everyone on-site with next steps and conduct status checks utilizing a single sign-on with multi-factor authorization with Okta.

Market Leader in Critical Communication and Collaboration
Notify Everyone, Everywhere
“Communication was a huge concern of mine. The school needs to simultaneously know that there’s an issue. In instances such as the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, people on the third floor of the building didn’t even know there was an active shooter, even though many 9-1-1 calls had already been placed.”
One Platform, Many Solutions
“The utility of being able to communicate with our schools has grown well beyond what we originally considered. It has been used to notify schools officials of missing students, used when a teacher confronted an intruder on campus, and was used to push a message to school staff during a bomb threat.”
Saving Valuable Time in an Emergency
“Our staff is excited to have the Rave Panic Button app to help them to immediately respond to incidents and improve response times.”
