In the event of an on-site crisis, an organization member can activate the Rave Panic
Button app system by pushing one of the five emergency button types. Upon activation,
the user’s phone will immediately dial 9-1-1 and at the same time, a preset notification
is delivered to all necessary personnel including staff, and security.
Instant NotificationA Rave Panic Button activation generates and delivers an instant notification to authorized on-site employees and security personnel. The automated functionality allows your employees to take immediate action during a crisis, such as locking down, evacuating the facility, or responding with an AED.
Internal CommunicationsRave Panic Button’s Staff Assist feature enables authorized employees to communicate with on-site groups or individuals without initiating an emergency call to 9-1-1. Internal groups and message templates are predetermined to enable fast communication and reduce the duration of disruptions.
“We trust the Rave Panic Button app for instant communication with 911, first responders, and school personnel during an emergency.”
Enhanced Coordination and Response
Easily maintain and share facility information for use in an emergency.
The Rave Panic Button app delivers critical data such as detailed caller location, floor plans, emergency exit locations, emergency contacts, and key procedures.
When an authorized user activates Rave Panic Button, a 9-1-1 call is initiated and a 9-1-1 call taker has immediate access to additional information such as where in the facility the call is coming from, building floor plans and points of entry, as well as who launched the activation and the type of emergency situation at hand.
As the incident unfolds, 9-1-1 serves as an incident command center by using the additional information to provide instructions to the responding crew, on-site administrators, and security. The enhanced coordination between authorized app users, 9-1-1 call takers and first responders saves time and lives.

Provide exact location information to 9-1-1 during an emergency.
Rave Panic Button enables you to identify the boundaries of all buildings and outdoor areas at your facility to deliver exact location information to 9-1-1 when a call is made on-site.
The Rave Panic Button app is able to use the boundary information to identify and relay the caller’s location to 9-1-1, and an automatic emergency notification is also sent to authorized staff.
