Everett, WA (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
Northshore Christian Academy in Everett, Washington, has implemented the Rapid Responder emergency preparedness and crisis management system for its school and church facilities allowing local first responders instant access to critical campus information for increased safety and security.
Northshore Christian Academy is now operational on Rapid Responder, allowing police, fire and other first responders with secure and instant access to critical campus information including floor plans, aerial imagery, emergency plans and other important information needed in the event of an emergency in order to effectively prepare for, respond to, and recover from any emergency.
The initial phase included an assessment to identify the unique safety needs of Northshore followed by the collection of critical information on the site, securely storing it in Rapid Responder for first responder use, enhancing their ability to respond to emergencies. The final tactical meeting brought local emergency responders and facility officials together to pre-plan a unified response plan in case of a natural or man-made disaster.
“We are excited to work with Prepared Response and the deployment of Rapid Responder in both our schools and church. Taking the next step in emergency preparedness is critical in looking after the safety and security of our community,” said Pam Jackson of Northshore Christian.
“Northshore Christian Academy joins Washington State schools, community colleges and others across the country using Rapid Responder to protect their church, students and staff,” said Jim Finnell, President and CEO of Prepared Response, Inc. “Rapid Responder will help Everett first responders to effectively coordinate and share emergency response information to respond quickly and efficiently in a crisis situation.”
Rapid Responder has been used successfully during a campus shooting, bomb threats, lock downs and other emergency situations on school campuses and other sites across the country. The system has been deployed in 27 states across the nation, more than any other system of its kind. Prepared Response has also provided onsite professional services to over 16,000 facilities including in K-12 and higher education campuses, hospitals, churches, government agencies and others throughout the United States.
