Security Panel: Immediate Emergency Notification for District and Campus Leaders Using CrisisGo
When exploring new technologies and platforms available for automating and improving school safety, Abilene ISD asked a lot of questions. How can all district and campus leaders automatically be notified and communicate during an emergency? How can we better communicate different types of emergencies with everyone on a specific campus? What can we use to manage safety for extra-curricular activities & field trips? With CrisisGo, we are addressing these questions and automating drill management, crisis communication management and emergency response protocols. We will cover what we’re doing and some of the other things we’re exploring.
With Cary Owens, CTO at Abilene ISD; Bill Reynolds, Co-Founder and VP of CrisisGo; and Dan Cottner, Director of School Safety, Abilene ISD.
