Centegix Education Crisis Alert 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 every day 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 2,000 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
How the CrisisAlert System is Implemented in Schools
“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—there are no dead zones. The CrisisAlert badges function everywhere, inside and outside, even if cell service or Wifi is down.
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.
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 CAMPUSES 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
“I think everyone should get it. Every school should be safe.”
-Madison Jackson, Chapel Hill High School Student,
