Keeping Our Children Safe at School
Named after Alyssa Alhadeff, a 14-year-old girl that tragically died in the Parkland shooting, Alyssa's Law requires schools to have silent panic alarms installed and linked to law enforcement. This legislation addresses the issue of response time in emergencies. Alyssa's Law already passed in Florida and New Jersey, with federal legislation working its way through.

Addresses The Issue Of Response Time In Emergencies
Requires Schools To Have Silent Panic Alarms
Silent Alarms Must Be Linked To Local Law Enforcement
Already Passed In Florida And New Jersey
Will Soon Be Federal Legislation Required By All Schools
Going Beyond Compliance
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, only 27 percent of schools reported using silent panic alarms connected to local law enforcement. Student safety should be a priority aside from state or federal compliance, but often school funding can present a problem.
Many cloud-based solutions offered today are associated with high monthly usage and licensing fees. There are ways to eliminate those fees and save on additional IT resources by implementing a built-to-own system. Besides, for a cloud solution to work, all the elements must perfectly align starting with a compatible device, updated operating system, battery level, unit readiness, Wi-Fi, and cellular network accessibility/availability. There are too many risks. After all, is it a good idea to place a life-safety panic alarm on a mobile device that is unsupervised?
On the other hand, providing staff, a physical, institutional-grade bi-directional panic button can be essential for the safety of all stakeholders.
SECURalert™ brings more than 27 years of experience deploying wireless panic buttons. That experience has shown that 78% of events occurring in a school do NOT require first responders. A fight in a classroom or a student having an epilepsy episode needs immediate attention from local stakeholders and therefore they should be notified first and respond based on local protocols and procedures.
