Summoning emergency assistance and providing immediate notification to your colleagues of an incident is simple. From the app home screen, press and hold for 1 and a half seconds the emergency button that corresponds to the type of emergency you are calling to report. For example, if you see an armed intruder or hear gunfire, press and hold the active shooter button. However, if you witness a medical emergency or are calling to report a suspicious person, press and hold the Medical or Police buttons, respectively.
Next, confirm the call to 9-1-1 (the app will pre-populate the digits 9-1-1 for you). As your phone is dialing 9-1-1, your campus’ key contacts, school resource officers/security, and any other designated administrators will receive an emergency notification that you have activated the Panic Button, along with your campus and building location.
