Centegix Education CrisisAlert System
WE TURN SCHOOLS INTO SAFER SPACES
Our CrisisAlert system empowers teachers and administrators to act and respond with confidence in every situation, from the everyday to the extreme. When educators and children feel safe and secure, they can get back to focusing on their goals: learning and academic achievement.
How CrisisAlert™ protects over 4,000 schools
Medical emergencies, student altercations, unauthorized visitors, suspicious activity, and similar situations occur daily in school systems. Each incident, no matter the severity, demands a fast, reliable response with complete and accurate information.
With teachers and staff in mind, CENTEGIX designed a safety solution that routes requests for help to key personnel instantly. CrisisAlert provides clear and critical information to all impacted personnel, ensuring your staff feels ready to respond to any situation.
In critical moments, simplicity and speed are crucial to an effective response. CENTEGIX empowers educators and administrators to direct help where it is needed—easily and quickly—because in a crisis, every second matters.
Watch the CrisisAlert School Safety Solution in Action
“The CrisisAlert 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 smart boards and monitors in the classroom and throughout the school. We were all made aware, and the teachers responded appropriately.”
– James Strong, Head of Security at Douglas County High School
THE CRISISALERT ADVANTAGE
CENTEGIX™ exists to innovate technology to save and enrich lives in the K-12 environment. Our motto, “Every Second Matters,” echoes Lori Alhadeff’s powerful mantra, “Time equals life,” inspired by her work to promote Alyssa’s Law. Since the launch of CrisisAlert, we have been singularly driven to develop a solution that stands up to the rigors and limitations of real-world emergencies while minimizing the time and fine motor skills required to initiate and respond to whatever crisis arises.
Our CrisisAlert badge is the fastest and easiest way for teachers and staff to immediately get help, anywhere on campus.
Here’s what makes CrisisAlert the best, most reliable rapid incident response solution for the entire education industry.
ONE BUTTON ACTIVATION
The wearable badge has a single button, enabling quick human action in any circumstance. Simply push the button, and help is on the way.
With the simple push of a button, an alert instantly reaches administrators and responders. There’s no delay, no valuable seconds lost.
TOTAL FACILITY COVERAGE
Our network secures every square foot of your school property—no dead zones. The CrisisAlert badges function everywhere, inside and outside, no wi-fi or cell signal needed.
AUDIO & VISUAL NOTIFICATION
Facility-wide alerts communicate emergency information using colored strobe lights, desktop alerts, and intercom integration. With just a single notification, an entire school can go into lockdown in an instant.
Our innovative technology determines the location of the alert, down to an individual room and floor, so first responders know exactly where they’re needed.
EASE OF INSTALLATION
The CrisisAlert safety solution can be installed with no alterations to physical structures or electrical wiring required.
CrisisAlert and Alyssa’s Law: The Fastest and Easiest Way to Get Help
Schools in Florida and New Jersey are required by law to install silent mobile panic button systems that are directly linked to law enforcement. The CrisisAlert badge can be integrated with the CENTEGIX mobile app and other mobile panic applications, meaning school districts can leverage this safety solution to meet the Alyssa’s Law mandate.
Commensurate with the MSDHS Safety Commission’s report, our CrisisAlert badge not only empowers every employee to request individual help (StaffAlert), but it ensures all employees can initiate a lockdown/CODE RED (CampusAlert) via a body-worn device.
In both situations, notifications are sent to designated responders (including automatic 911 call generation if a lockdown/CODE RED is initiated), providing key information (person and their location on campus), to ensure response time is minimized and enable tight coordination between multiple first responder agencies.
Our solution can unite diverse emergency services technologies via our strategic partnerships designed to handle all types of emergencies, from on-site badge-level activations or remote campus-wide alerts to protect from nearby criminal activity, severe weather, threats, etc. Our unique solution provides an integrated crisis management platform that accelerates the critical response times and communications needed throughout an emergency.
“I was extremely pleased with the performance of the solution. We had 700 students involved in after-school activities and we were able to put the campuses in lockdown and get everyone to safety quickly and efficiently.”
-Mychele Rhodes, Superintendent
McDuffie School District, GA
“We call it a force multiplier: putting this technology in the hands of more than 25,000 employees gives me 25,000 sets of eyes to help keep the campus safe."
-Chief John Newman, Director of Safety and Security,
Hillsbourough County Public Schools, FL
“It empowers teachers to be in control of the safety of their room. They can summon a principal at the push of a button. We know where and we know who. That is powerful technology.”
– Trent North, Superintendent,
Douglas County Public Schools, GA
“The technology in and of itself is very simple to use, which we think is very key. It’s very easy for the teachers and students to know what’s going on.”
– Stuart Davis, Director of Technology,
Dalton Public Schools, GA
HEAR FROM OUR EDUCATORS
"I witnessed a custodian slipping and falling in the front lobby, and she was needing immediate help to stop bleeding. I was able to hit the button and get the nurse's attention immediately. We did not have to use the ambulance because of the quick response. Your system is perfect for schools! Thanks!"
Private school teacher, Sarasota County, FL
"A student was having trouble breathing and her vision was beginning to black out. We don't have service in our building and it can be difficult to get ahold of the office staff, so having something to immediately alert them of emergency was incredibly helpful in a very scary situation."
Elementary school teacher, Clayton County Schools
"A student was bothering another student and would not stop after several verbal warnings and attempt to separate the student from his target, and without any luck I triggered the alarm to come assist me with the situation. It has been very comforting to just push a button and help is on the way."
Middle school teacher, Coweta County Schools
"I had a student who was refusing to follow directions and became very defiant. This student was beginning to get aggressive. I used my badge to alert our campus security monitor to remove the student from the situation.It is a very useful tool when the response was as immediate as it was and the resolution was satisfactory. Students understood the urgency in the situation."
High school teacher, Clark County School District
"I was outside with my physical education class and I had a student become upset at another student in their group. They made a poor choice and then feared that they would get in trouble for that choice....when I could not get this student to [re]enter the building, I knew I needed to push my badge so administrators could find us and help me get him calm and into the building. It was great to know that the administrators would know I needed help and would be able to see our location since it was outside of the building in a random spot. As a PE teacher the badge gives me a sense of security that I can receive help with altercations or injuries quickly. In the past you had to send students running for help...this is a much better system!"
PE teacher, South Adams Schools
"A student was having a meltdown and jeopardizing the safety of himself and others. Instead of having to go to the wall phone and dial a number or call from my personal phone, the office was quickly alerted and called ME to find out what type of assistance I needed. I've only used it once, but I'm secure in the fact that it works so fast and response time in shortened."
Elementary school teacher, Cobb County Schools
"I had a student have a seizure in my classroom. I have used this several times, and the admins come check on me promptly."
High school teacher, Jay School Corp.
"I had a student who was inconsolable and crying very, very loudly. She was unable to regain composure and was disrupting the class and the classrooms around us. I believe that every teacher in every classroom should have access to this tool. It is a gamechanger for teachers."
Elementary school teacher, Olathe Public Schools
"2 students came into my classroom, ready to fight each other and without the centigix badge things would have escalated. It was quick and easy to use to resolve the conflict."
Middle school teacher, Douglas County Schools
