Sonim Partners with School Safety App Company
Thursday, February 14, 2019 | Comments

CrisisGo and Sonim Technologies partnered to help keep school personnel connected to each other and first responders during a crisis.

CrisisGo is a mobile app that allows school officials or security teams to rapidly alert key personnel of a potential risk. Depending on the incident, alerts can be escalated to district administrators and first responders using the app. CrisisGo also enables those in a crisis to stay in constant contact, facilitating the dissemination of timely and relevant information as the situation unfolds.

The CrisisGo app will be integrated with Sonim’s XP8 rugged device. The radio is certified First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) Ready, which allows FirstNet subscribers to use the integrated solution in times of emergencies and to apply key FirstNet capabilities, such as priority service.

“Unfortunately, 2018 had the greatest number of school shootings with 94 recorded incidents according to the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) Center for Homeland Defense and Security,” said Stacey Sisk, vice president of business development for CrisisGo. “As a result, reliable communications are no longer a luxury but a requirement in an emergency situation on school property. Today, we’re bringing forward a crisis communications solution that gives key emergency personnel the ability to access the solution on FirstNet, helping them greatly reduce response times, improve safety and minimize risk.”

Key features include discreet one-to-one or one-to-many communications, side button to set off personal panic alarm to designated safety team, and option to interconnect to first responders and auto escalation alerts to participating law enforcement agencies in critical incidents and others.
