Alexandria, Va. – Feb. 13, 2017 – In only a matter of months, more than 5,500 schools, whose districts range in size from 250 students to some of the largest urban districts in the country, have ramped up their safety efforts by downloading a mobile app, enabling two-way, real-time communication in the event of an incident or emergency within the classroom or building.

Last October, AASA, The School Superintendents Association, created a partnership with CrisisGo Inc., the maker of a world-class platform that can be used on smartphones, tablets, iPads and other devices. In just a few months, these districts have implemented the panic button and emergency notification features to help them prepare for and effectively manage incident and emergency situations. The panic button feature allows teachers and staff to quickly notify building security to let them know they need help in the event of an incident and allows them to have two-way, multimedia communication.

“Recognizing the increased threats that face our communities, I am impressed that so many schools have signed up for the free panic button offer in such a short period of time,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA. “School safety is a huge priority in our school districts. We are very pleased that CrisisGo is one of our School Solutions partners.”
