'Panic button' for K-12 schools unveiled

from Arkansas Online

State legislators unveiled an emergency alert button for K-12 schools, as part of the School Safety Act of 2015, during a news conference at the Arkansas State Capitol. The "panic button," a product of Framingham, Mass.-based Rave Mobile Safety, will be implemented at more than 1,000 public schools across Arkansas during the 2015-16 school year. Its intent is to provide enhanced security measures for more than 500,000 Arkansas students, faculty and staff through what Rave Mobile Safety describes as a "simple five-button interface." "Having the ability to instantaneously connect teachers and school administrators with 9-1-1 and other emergency personnel will give us, and Arkansas parents, a much greater sense of confidence as we begin a new school year," state Education Commissioner Johnny Key said in a statement. more
