Cassville R-IV Launches Mobile Technology Emergency Response System
Cassville R-IV School District will contract with CrisisGo to offer a technology emergency response system for Cassville Public Schools. CrisisGo is a mobile emergency application which will send a message to school staff members’ phones, tablets or laptops in the event of an emergency.
“Our number one concern is keeping our students and staff safe at all times,” stated Richard Asbill, Cassville School District Superintendent. “Our crisis management plans are fully developed and up-to-date and our staff is prepared to respond in the case of a crisis, however, our plans are pages long and CrisisGo is tailored to make emergency response information easily accessible in a quick manner.”
CrisisGo gives administrators and teachers a two-way communication platform and securely stores important emergency preparedness plans and information such as checklists, class rosters, call lists and building maps.
“It will streamline each response with the pieces everyone needs in the event of a specific emergency. For instance, in the case of an emergency, a teacher would receive a message with step-by-step instructions on how he or she should respond to the crisis at hand,” stated Asbill.
