New Mexico Adopts Rave Mobile Safety Panic Button to Improve School Safety
Tuesday, October 06, 2020 | Comments

New Mexico deployed its Rave Mobile Safety’s Panic Button in all K-12 schools across the state, joining Oklahoma, Delaware and Louisiana in statewide deployments.

The growth in Rave Panic Button deployments comes as new features are added to the platform to further enhance the tool’s ability to get help where it’s needed most during an emergency, as well as strengthen internal critical communications.

As schools navigate safety threats both old and new, they need fast, smart and reliable technology that can create a direct connection with 9-1-1, first responders and on-site personnel to activate an immediate response to any type of emergency from day-to-day medical incidents to crisis situations. Rave Panic Button will now fill that need in New Mexico, covering nearly 350,000 students across all K-12 public schools, creating a fully interoperable school safety platform statewide.

The app has already been implemented in nearly 50 states and is used in more than 10,000 schools across the U.S., including those in Washington, D.C., and Florida, where 25% of the student population statewide is protected by Rave Panic Button.

“We implemented Rave Panic Button following the guidelines and best practices established in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission report, which highlights that the fastest response to a school emergency is by calling 9-1-1 and simultaneously notifying those on campus of the type of event,” said John “David” Crawford, director of auxiliary services and school safety for Baker County Public Schools in Florida. “Rave Panic Button does this immediately with a push of the button no matter where on campus an emergency takes place.”
