Alexandria, Va. – Oct. 10, 2017 – With a new school year underway, the need for streamlined safety communication and resources continues to grow. AASA, The School Superintendents Association, and CrisisGo, the provider of an emergency planning and communications platform, are offering digital response plans to AASA members at no cost.

The CrisisGo mobile app allows school administrators, teachers and school staff to transform their smartphones into mobile safety devices. The user-friendly, digitized emergency plans also include role-based checklists and emergency communication groups.

“These tools allow school personnel to have instant access to emergency response procedures, maps and how-to documents on their mobile devices,” said Bill Reynolds, vice president, CrisisGo. “Safety teams will be able to send messages to teachers and staff in the event of an emergency.”

The role-based checklists create actionable instructions for personnel based on their roles within the school for any type of incident. Checklists can also be used as comprehensive lists for improvements when deficiencies (hardware issues or procedure times) are discovered during routine drills. The CrisisGo platform also provides a comprehensive dashboard portal for administrators.

“No one wants see an act of violence on school grounds or anywhere else for that matter,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA. “We are pleased that CrisisGo, one of our School Solutions partners, is working to provide innovative ways to effectively respond to an emergency.”

CrisisGo is currently helping more than 13,000 schools achieve a higher level of safety. For more information about this no-cost opportunity, visit https://goo.gl/R53pqa.
