“The Crisis Alert System was activated by one of our staff pressing his badge which gave notification throughout the school of the cause for concern. In terms of the notification, we heard it over the intercom, the strobes lit up and it came up on the the smart boards and monitors in the classroom and throughout the school. We were all made aware and the teachers responded appropriately.”
