“With this no cost program, schools in our state can add another layer of protection for our students by putting a real-time emergency notification tool in the hands of every teacher, staff member and school parent.”
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) October 04, 2016
Recognizing the increased threats and safety needs facing public schools, the Missouri School Boards' Association and CrisisGo, Inc., have teamed up to offer all Missouri schools, teachers, staff and parent communities an easy-to-use mobile emergency communications technology that can make schools safer. Beginning on October 1st, Missouri schools can now offer their employees, teachers and parent community the CrisisGo mobile app with the Panic Button feature and emergency notification platform activated for free for a three-year period.
With the CrisisGo mobile communications app on their smartphones, teachers and school staff will be able to use the CrisisGo panic button feature to report emergency incidents immediately to school administration and the school safety team. That feature combined with the CrisisGo notification feature, will give school communities powerful real time communications to keep school communities informed in an emergency, when every second counts.
"Missouri schools, like the rest of our society, are not exempt from threats and emergencies," said Melissa Randol, MSBA Executive Director. “With this no cost program, schools in our state can add another layer of protection for our students by putting a real-time emergency notification tool in the hands of every teacher, staff member and school parent.”
To be eligible for this free program, Missouri School Districts must register with CrisisGo at http://www.crisisgo.com/free-teacher-panic before December 15, 2016. Each participating school will have access to a district and school site(s) account that includes the CrisisGo mobile app with the Panic Button and group notification features activated for a three-year period at no cost for all school site employees and their parent communities. Parents can learn about how they can participate at their children's schools at: http://crisisgo.com/schoolsafety.
“We are encouraging every school in our state to sign up for this safe schools program,” said Jim Spicuzza, CrisisGo Founder. “The free panic button and emergency notification features, now available to all Missouri schools, are just two key elements of the CrisisGo Emergency Management Platform to help schools and other organizations prepare for and effectively manage crisis situations.”
CrisisGo will offer implementation services to participating Missouri school districts to get schools up and running with the emergency communications app as soon as possible. After a district signs up for the program at http://www.crisisgo.com/free-teacher-panic, CrisisGo will set up individual district and school accounts and provide training resources with information for districts to give to staff and parents about how to download the CrisisGo app and secure login instructions.
