The number of active shooters in our schools is increasing at an alarming rate, and on colleges and universities, it’s harder than ever to locate the shooter and keep everyone safe.
According to Homeland Security, it takes 4-11 minutes for a 911 call to be processed and first responders dispatched, and 4-18 minutes for a first responder to be on the scene and act.
The only true solution to saving lives during these incidents is to reduce law enforcement notification and response times, which is what the CampusGuard911™ active shooter alert app does.
With the touch of a smartphone screen, 911 is notified and the Hero911®app is activated, which directly alerts all local, state, and federal officers nearby so they can respond and be there as fast as possible, often faster than those dispatched through 911. It also displays an alert map, which is critical on a campus When Seconds Save Lives®.
