Your Safety Partner When Every Second Matters™

If you’re a modern higher education institution, you know you can’t stand still—you’re constantly evolving to better serve your faculty and students.

Educators across the country rely on us to help them meet their unique campus safety needs while protecting their communities. The CENTEGIX Safety Platform™ is the foundation of your layered campus safety plan, empowering the fastest response to emergencies. Because every second matters.™

Here recently, we’re averaging probably two students a week that are having medical issues and we’ve had to call ambulances in. Our staff have gotten so comfortable that they’re really hitting it now…But we found great success and pretty good use of it lately…Our response time has been in the seconds, not in the minutes. And it’s been fantastic for us.

Unique Campus Challenges of Higher Education

Campus environments present their own unique challenges.

Expansive Campuses and Multiple Buildings

Colleges and universities can have campuses ranging from multiple buildings to multiple acres, making it a challenge to monitor all areas at the same time. When you lack that visibility, emergency response times can increase, putting lives at risk.

Communication Gaps

In an emergency, getting help to the scene quickly is the most important factor. Buildings on college campuses can sometimes present unique challenges to communication—such as lead ceilings or basement labs and facilities. You need a solution that can work anywhere on campus and eliminate those gaps left by other solutions.

Vulnerable Areas

Higher ed campuses contain many areas that are more vulnerable to safety incidents, such as parking lots, dormitories, science labs, libraries, and isolated walkways. You need a safety solution that protects those vulnerable areas.

High Foot Traffic and Events

Prospective student tours, sporting events, lectures, and many other activities can bring a number of familiar and unfamiliar people to your grounds, creating an additional challenge to keeping your campus safe and secure.

Improves communication and eliminates gaps

Administrators can quickly manage and monitor an emergency event as it’s unfolding through the CrisisAlert Responder App. The wearable panic button facilitates direct communication between first responders and the person that needs help. It bridges communication gaps left by other solutions, allowing every request for help to get delivered.

Audio Visual Notifications icons

Peace of mind through 100% coverage

The CrisisAlert wearable badge alleviates concerns often raised about app-based safety solutions. It also offers unique features other wearable providers can’t deliver, like precise location information and full-campus coverage. All faculty and staff have a badge, allowing for 100% user coverage and peace of mind campus-wide.

CrisisAlert saves lives every day.

Activate the Staff Alert for everyday incidents including medical emergencies and physical altercations. It notifies local administrators and responders immediately, displaying a map showing who needs help and where they’re located on campus.

CENTEGIX Safety Blueprint™ for Higher Education

Digital maps of your campus—including buildings and assets—are a critical part of your campus safety plan. Our dynamic digital mapping solution, Safety Blueprint, ensures help arrives at the precise location on your campus and can access the appropriate safety assets quickly.

Safety Blueprint Icon in blue

Update, Layer, and Share Digital Campus Maps Across Departments

Use dynamic mapping capabilities to improve safety planning, incident response, situational awareness, and communication. Easy to edit and update, IT, Facilities, and Safety/Security teams can define and customize map layers while collaborating across departments and with first responders such as law enforcement, fire departments, and local PSAPs.

Analytics icon

Safety Asset Management Taken to the Next Level

Visualize all of the data relevant to your safety assets and planning from one source. Run inventory counts, review inspection dates, define construction zones, mark hazardous materials and chemicals, and plan efficient routes—based on the precise physical location of assets—to address any maintenance required or safety concerns.

School Visitor Screening Icon

Precision Location of Critical Safety Assets, Visually Mapped and Response-Ready

An emergency response often relies on critical safety assets. Knowing the precise GPS/GIS location of your assets, that they’ve been properly maintained, and that they are fully functional is vital to managing through the crisis. Safety Blueprint eliminates your reliance on disparate spreadsheets and questionable version control.

The system has a very sophisticated mapping feature that allows responders to see exactly which room or hallway the emergency is coming from and from whom. In the event of a real active shooter, we could share this information with outside police agencies who may be coming to aid us.
