Missouri Startup CRISIS GO Is Keeping Students Safer
Since the words “active shooter” and “lock down” have become a part of the grade school student’s vocabulary, startups have been working on how to make schools safer.
Since 2011 we’ve seen so many safe school startups. In Jacksonville at OneSpark two years ago, we saw a startup that made bullet proof boxes that dropped from the ceiling to cover up scared students. We’ve seen major companies try to incorporate safety systems into smart boards, clickers and teacher audio devices. We’ve also seen a handful of apps.
The startup that’s going to win the category and actually make schools safer is going to be the easiest one to use, with the most relevant features. That very well could be Missouri startup CRISIS GO.
“We created a mobile application that combines safety awareness, instructions, and emergency response tools. In case of an incident, it enables faster response by bringing safety teams to people in distress and guides them back to safety using two-way emergency communications.” the company says on their website.
Their mobile app puts crisis management in the palms of teacher’s hands. Each school’s emergency response plan is embedded in the app giving teachers and administrators piece of mind that when crisis comes they have the information they need. There’s also an easy to use tool that allows teachers or administrators to quickly report a tip or incident. There’s a panic button feature, and a reunification feature that insures teachers know what students are in the classroom and when each student is truly safe.
Most lockdown situations are made within three minutes. Several within seconds of an incident occurring. There’s no time to root through desks for manuals and instructions. There isn’t enough time in the school year to run through drills. Teachers and administrators need the information and they need it now. That’s why CRISIS GO has already secured over 5500 schools across the country with CRISIS GO Panic.
After launching to the education industry in 2015, other industries have started to use CRISIS GO as a way to manage their serious crisis’.
