HEARTWARMING STORY: CRISISALERT IN ACTION
Doctors said if not for the quick action by the Dunbar staff, Mia Santiago wouldn’t be here today. Mia experienced a medical emergency during class and her teacher was able to quickly call for help with three clicks of her CrisisAlert badge.
What is Alyssa’s Law?
The purpose of Alyssa’s Law is to decrease the amount of time it takes for first responders to arrive at an emergency situation—whether it’s a shooting, a natural disaster, or any other unforeseen event.
Passed in New Jersey in February 2019 and in Florida in July 2020, Alyssa’s Law has also been proposed in Arizona, New York, Nebraska, Texas and introduced on a federal level.
Alyssa’s Law Requirements
The Alyssa’s Law legislation is focused on improving law enforcement response time to a life-threatening emergency. The law calls for “the installation of silent panic alarms that are directly linked to law enforcement, so in case of any emergency they will get on the scene as quickly as possible, take down a threat and triage any victims.”
Here’s how CENTEGIX’s CrisisAlert solution fulfills these requirements:
- Mobile panic alert system
- Connections to diverse emergency services technologies
- Real-time coordination between multiple first responder agencies including county, local, and on-site responders
- Integration with local public safety answering point to transmit 911 calls and mobile activations
In addition, we incorporated feedback from Marjory Stoneman Douglas public safety commission representatives into product-level design.
CrisisAlert also provides the additional functionality:
- 100% coverage of all indoor spaces and outdoor areas
- Room-level location accuracy including floors
- Wearable panic button ensures 100% compliance
- Audio and visual alerting (lighted strobes and desktop messages)
- Integration with intercom and two-way radio
“We partnered with CrisisAlert to give each and every one of our employees the ability to call for help anytime anywhere when they are on one of our campuses. For a 30-year law enforcement professional, we call that a force multiplier, with this technology in the hands of over 25,000 employees, that gives me 25,000 sets of eyes to help keep the campus safe.”
