LOCK IT DOWN when minutes matter
Lock It Down Mobile communication for security threats at schools There were 11 school shootings during the first 19 days of 2014. School shootings are often over in 5 to 8 minutes, yet the national average for police response is more than 10 minutes. Educators and their students are basically on their own during the first critical moments of a school threat. ELERTS offers a solution, a smart phone app that lets school staff report and receive information about evolving threats before and during a suspicious or violent act. With real-time chat, photos, and GPS mapping, the quality and speed of information exchange is greatly enhanced.
School violence is all too common, and incidents are often over before police arrive. While urban shootings may dominate the news, school shootings happen in small towns, too, where response time can be even longer. Experts at the Department of Education, FBI and Secret Service now agree that Situational Response is key to survival in an active shooter incident. Once-popular “lights out, hide and wait” thinking is giving way to proactive procedures and personal training. For Situational Response to work, administrators and educators need real-time information about the events that are unfolding. They must be able to report what is happening, receive immediate instructions and convey potentially life-saving directions to their students. The Lock It Down app from ELERTS connects school personnel to law enforcers and First Responders without dispatch desk delays or 911 screenings. This solution turns a smart phone into a tactical tool What is this? Lock It Down from ELERTS is a web-enabled cloud based system driven by a smart phone app that integrates real-time chat, photo sharing and GPS mapping. • Built specifically for K-12 schools and colleges • Supports photos to enhance GPS and text information • Can connect staff directly to first responders and police • Discreetly broadcasts advisories to school staff • Time-saving “Evacuate” and “Shelter In Place” buttons • Can be coupled with access control and surveillance cameras • Full Test Mode trainingfor authorized Personnel
How is Lock It Down different? “The Dennis-Yarmouth Regional School District has been on the forefront of emergency preparedness training for many years. We have presented numerous workshops on emergency procedure program development and implementation for other school districts and communities. When we saw ELERTS at a conference last year, we knew Lock It Down would make a tremendous difference in empowering our staff, protecting our students, and assisting First Responders. It seems only logical that if the technology exists, to use it. I’m proud that D-Y will be a model for other schools across the country.” —Nicholas R. Pasquarosa, Jr., School Resource Officer, Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School, Massachusetts
