Past school shooting incident investigations reveal a common, repeating problem - response delays and confusion caused by a lack of effective communications and lack of real-time visibility. The automated emergency response solution solves this problem. It instantly connects school personnel to police in emergencies and automatically shares live video with school floor views enabling real-time situational awareness leading to quick assessment, decision-making, and immediate, effective action.
"As details emerge, it’s heartbreaking to hear that the same failures that challenged first responders in the Parkland shooting, the Santa Fe shooting, and Columbine, plagued police in Uvalde, TX. They lacked direct, real-time communication, and visibility critically needed to make informed decisions," said Chrissie Coon, Chief Strategy Officer, and Retired Law Enforcement Officer. "This technology is the only tool available to solve this."
Mutualink is the leading provider of automated emergency communications solutions for public safety. Panic buttons integrated with Mutualink provide a direct link to communicate voice, text, live video, and pictures to authorities in an emergency. School personnel need a way to communicate directly, quickly and effectively with dispatchers and first responders in real-time, and securely share the live video so responders can take swift informed action.
With this technology, police are automatically connected to the school’s camera system, access floor plans, and talk directly with school personnel, which will help them respond more effectively.
"There are dozens of panic buttons and active shooter alert apps on the market, but the terrifying reality is that some don’t provide direct communication with 911 dispatchers and first responders," said Coon. "So in situations where seconds can save lives and information is critical during a response, the Mutualink solution gives students teachers, staff and parents the peace of mind that the panic button they are using triggers an effective emergency communication and coordination environment with the fastest response."
In addition, users gain access to the broader Mutualink Network- the largest nationwide ecosystem of government, public safety entities, and secondary response organizations in the world. To learn more about Mutualink’s technology go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3vw6UvSI2g&t=12s
