The lockdown feature enables any faculty or staff member using the K-12 StaySafe app to order an emergency lockdown with the press of a button. Tapping the "lockdown" button immediately initiates a 911 call while simultaneously sending a "Lockdown Ordered" text message and email to all faculty and staff members. Alert messages can also be sent to local first responders and school resource officers. The alert messages include the name of the caller and their GPS location for greater situational awareness.
"There are two keys to a successful outcome in a serious school incident – quickly notifying first responders to send help and alerting faculty and staff to take immediate action to protect students," said
K-12 StaySafe is a smartphone app that also enables panic button alerting to 911 supported by text message and email alerts to school “emergency team” members and district safety administrators for enhanced situational awareness.
