Increase School Safety

While school shootings are in the news and a growing national problem, schools also have to prepare for the day-to-day emergencies that impact school safety and put school children at risk.

By partnering with local first responders, schools can automatically provide additional data and information to speed up the emergency response by first responders.

The more information responders have before they arrive at the scene improves their response time, situational awareness and ability to save a life.

Biggest Threat to School Safety: Failure of Communication


Encourage Early Intervention and Prevention

Despite being the eyes and ears of your schools, students might be hesitant to report incidents or “snitch” on their classmates. In 81% of violent incidents at U.S. schools, at least one person had information that the attacker was thinking about or planning the school attack and failed to report it.

Students, who may not feel comfortable talking directly to an adult or don’t want anyone to know they submitted the tip, can anonymously send a text message to school administrators. Key personnel can respond to any texts submitted in real time to collect additional information and details. Each report is logged for future viewing, as well as reviewing trends and incident patterns over time.

Anonymous tip technology increases engagement from students and prevents them from withholding timely, critical information that will keep your school safe from threats, such as an active shooter, bullying and drugs.

Expedite Emergency Response

A number of tragic school shootings have occurred across the country. If there's a delay in notifying 9-1-1, it can slow down first responders and onsite faculty and staff resolving any incident and putting everyone at the school at risk.

Technology now enables faculty and staff to instantly trigger mobile panic button activation to 9-1-1 and onsite personnel. Bystanders and staff are immediately notified through the app and can act immediately. This helps to coordinate a faster response by on-site personnel and responding officers.

Generate Positive Media and Community Engagement

While the media can be your best partner for spreading important school news, it can also disseminate incorrect or out-of-date information about an ongoing incident.

You can be the authoritative source about events in your school district by easily disseminating facts around an incident by leveraging the extensive reporting, as well as using the audit trails and time stamps to provide a definitive timeline of events. 

You can tap into the power of the media by empowering it to share your school’s technological innovation to demonstrate your school’s commitment to school safety and violence prevention.
