HOW DOES EMERGENCY EVENT MANAGEMENT WORK?

911Inform is a complete emergency event management solution that integrates with most of the companies in this space and the only emergency services solution provider that’s integrated into the PSAP (Public Safety Answering Points).

When an emergency strikes and 911 is dialed within a school, 911inform springs into action in just over one second. Imagine police officers instantly gaining access to the system on their patrol cars and school administrators having it at their fingertips on their cell phones.

With a simple click, they can remotely activate and actually view school cameras and secure all doors, providing real-time information to law enforcement and ensuring a swift response.

The innovation doesn't stop there with some schools optioning facial recognition and license plate readers, bolstering security measures to safeguard school properties. Visible weapons scanning technology adds another layer of protection, ensuring potential threats are detected and addressed promptly.

911Inform offers a comprehensive emergency response system for schools, focused on rapid and effective coordination during critical incidents.

Such a system can greatly enhance the safety and security of students, staff, and the school property. Here's an overview of the components and technologies involved:

1. Immediate 911 Integration: When someone dials 911 within a school, the system should automatically trigger an alert to local emergency services, such as the police, fire, and medical responders. Quick notification ensures that responders are informed promptly, reducing response time.

2. Access for Law Enforcement and Administrators: Police officers and school administrators can access the emergency response system through mobile apps on their patrol cars and smartphones. This allows them to stay updated in real-time and coordinate their responses effectively.

3. Remote Activation of School Cameras and Door Security: Integrating with the school's surveillance system, the emergency response system can remotely activate all available cameras. The system can also control door access systems, securing all doors to prevent unauthorized entry during an emergency. Real-time camera feeds provide valuable information to law enforcement about the situation inside the school.

4. Facial Recognition and License Plate Readers: Some schools may choose to enhance security by implementing facial recognition technology at entrances and license plate readers in parking lots. These technologies can help identify potential threats or unauthorized individuals attempting to enter the premises.

5. Visible Weapons Scanning Technology: Visible weapons scanning technology can be deployed at entry points or within school premises. It's designed to detect weapons, such as firearms or knives, and trigger alarms or notifications when a potential threat is identified. This technology adds an extra layer of security by identifying and addressing threats promptly.

6. Integration and Coordination: The effectiveness of such a system depends on seamless integration of various components, including alarm systems, surveillance cameras, access control, and emergency communication systems. A central control center or dashboard allows for easy coordination and monitoring of all security measures.

7. Training and Protocols: Training programs and emergency response protocols should be established for school staff, administrators, and law enforcement to ensure everyone knows how to use the system effectively during emergencies.

8. Privacy and Legal Considerations: It's crucial to address privacy concerns and comply with relevant laws and regulations, particularly when implementing technologies like facial recognition and license plate readers.

This comprehensive approach to school security aims to minimize response times, increase situational awareness, and deter potential threats through advanced technology while respecting privacy and legal standards.

Regular drills and testing of the system can help ensure its effectiveness during actual emergencies.

Shooter Detection is Crucial

The SDS Indoor Gunshot Detection System simultaneously detects gunfire and relays this information via a floor plan map, text and email with shot location.

System/Sensor maintenance alerts can also be programmed to go to specific individuals via text and email.

Additional modules can be configured to automate security and notification systems such as building alarms, lights/strobes, video, access control, computer-aided police dispatch (CAD), etc.

Guardian sensors can be installed into existing building infrastructure through a flush wall/ceiling or surface mount for impenetrable structures.

The system configuration is fully scalable to the area of desired coverage.

Safe Zone for Indoor Gunfire Detection

Mass shootings are one of the most tragic and still growing problems of our time.

It is difficult for law enforcement to determine the location of an active shooter in buildings with multiple rooms, and even more difficult to respond quickly to a shooter in buildings with multiple floors.

Safe Zone
solves the problem. Every minute an active shooting continues, more lives are at stake.

Safe Zone
is dedicated to using technology to make the world a safer place – and making the protective benefits accessible to everyone.

Safe Zone’s
advanced sensor technology makes indoor gunfire detection available for buildings of all sizes and all budgets.

It takes Safe Zone about 10 seconds to perform firearm analysis and push alerts to users with the 911 notification giving responders a graphical view into the location of an active shooter’s actions seconds after an event begins.
