When you think about an autonomous technology or solution many minds first go to high-tech self-driving vehicles and artificial intelligence. What was once a dream of the future is now a reality for many technology solutions for several industries across the world. Autonomous technology is revolutionizing the transportation, aviation, trucking, and farming industries as these devices can perform tricky tasks that were once seen to be the preserve of humans, according to CNBC. One industry you may not consider autonomous technology is in K-12 education, but the use of autonomous school safety technologies has its own set of benefits.
One autonomous school safety technology used across the United States in K-12 schools and districts is a mobile panic button solution. During an emergency situation, users can utilize this technology to reach 9-1-1, first responders, and school staff simultaneously with just the quick push of a button. What some don’t realize is once a button is pressed, whether for an active assailant incident or medical emergency, panic button technology automatically creates a series of workflows which prompts many features to then work by them self to efficiently streamline emergency response and communications. On the back end there are essentially a series of questions – if this button is pressed then this, this, and this must happen immediately.
So, what happens after you push a mobile panic button? Below we’ll break down all the things triggered by the press of a button.
During an emergency situation, users want to know that the above will simultaneously happen to streamline emergency response and communications. Using an autonomous school safety solution ensures users don’t have to worry about the many things that must happen during an emergency, as a mobile panic button solution can cover many bases.
