GeoComm School Safety

Accelerate school incident response with trusted and patented technology for superior indoor visualization. GeoComm School Safety empowers your school and community with a dynamic footprint for a more unified, effective, and responsive security. This solution nearly instantaneously links a 9-1-1 call or the press of a panic button to designated school personnel (e.g., SRO) and law enforcement, displays the caller’s location on a detailed indoor map and alerts others to the incident.

In addition, the indoor maps can be provisioned into public safety applications, resulting in greater interoperability. The indoor map acts as the hub, integrating capabilities which can have a significant effect on reducing response times and improving situational awareness.

 

 

How will GeoComm Provide Value to the Florida School Districts?

The legislation (CS/CS/HB 301), as written today, funds the development of school mapping data that can be viewed in your existing public safety applications for emergency response. GeoComm School Safety can help fulfill your school safety needs and is in compliance with the Florida legislation.
