That’s why we want to increase awareness of our Panic Button, a powerful tool designed to enhance on-site safety and enable quick response in emergency situations. With over 53% of Alabama’s school systems already trusting us for their communication needs, it’s time to raise awareness about this invaluable feature.
What is a Panic Button?
Our Panic Buttons are a simple, yet highly effective solution that empowers users to instantly alert all necessary parties when an emergency occurs. By pressing a single button, the Panic Button™ initiates immediate calls to pre-programmed numbers while playing a pre-recorded message to inform recipients about the situation and provide location details. The phone then switches to a broadcast-only mode, allowing those on the receiving end to hear what is happening in the room, without any indication that a call is in progress.
How Does it Work?
Activating the Panic Button triggers instant dialing to pre-defined numbers, ensuring a swift response. The pre-recorded message plays automatically, conveying vital information to the recipients. Simultaneously, the phone’s microphone is set to broadcast-only mode, capturing and transmitting audio from the surroundings. This discreet functionality ensures that help can be mobilized quickly and efficiently without raising suspicion or escalating the situation.
Enhancing School Safety:
The Panic Button is a powerful tool that addresses various emergency scenarios. Whether it’s the presence of unauthorized individuals, fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, or hazardous substances, this innovative feature provides peace of mind and immediate assistance at the touch of a button. Instructors and staff members who are unable to leave the room due to safety concerns can utilize the Panic Button™ to swiftly alert authorities and provide crucial information about the threat’s location, ultimately saving valuable time in emergency response.
Statistics Speak Volumes:
According to data from 2019, the U.S. experienced 417 mass shootings*, with 25 occurring within school premises.** In light of these alarming figures, it is crucial to equip educators with the means to initiate rapid response and ensure the safety of their students. Our Panic Button™ empowers educators by offering a simple, quick, and effective method to notify and call for help, facilitating the swift evacuation of students to a secure location. In times of crisis, every second counts, and our Panic Button™ can make a significant difference in saving lives.
