The number of active shooters in our schools is increasing at an alarming rate. The only true defense against this threat is to reduce law enforcement response time to these incidents. On average, it takes first responders 18 minutes to arrive at an active shooter incident, according to Homeland Security.
Features of SchoolGuard®
How It Works
The SchoolGuard® app technology is simple and powerful. Teachers and staff download the app to their mobile phones. In the event of an active shooting, a teacher presses the panic button provided in the app. An alert is immediately sent to the mobile phones of all federal, state and local law enforcement officers, ON and OFF duty, in close proximity to the school.
The app simultaneously speed dials 911 and connects the teacher to emergency services. All other staff and teachers in the school with the app installed are also immediately alerted of the shooting, and a map of the location of the initial alert is displayed on their mobile phones. The map provides awareness to staff and teachers, which allows them to react accordingly.
Hear It From National Experts!
“I really believe this app saves lives.”
“We had a situation today to put to use SchoolGuard. We used “Teacher Assist” as a child hit their head causing it to bleed. It worked great as the teacher had immediate assistance! I was with the head of school when it occurred and she was so pleased with your program! Thank you for designing this wonderful tool for schools to use to help us in all situations.”
“Our school signed up for SchoolGuard and we recently had the opportunity to use it during an Active Shooter Drill conducted by the Maui Police Department. We used the “Principal Push” to communicate with each other as it was impossible to get to landline phones or alarm systems during the drill. We were grateful for the sense of connectedness SchoolGuard gave to us as we sent messages to alert the location of the shooter. This is a wonderful tool for school safety. Thank you for your work in making our schools safer!”
“SchoolGuard is the most progressive school safety program available to schools throughout the nation. This application was developed by experienced first responders for teachers and administrators and is easy to use and very powerful.”
“As a cop, father of 2 young kids and husband of a teacher, your police notification app is the best app and best use of a smart phone I have ever seen. NICE WORK AND THANK YOU!!!!”
