The advanced integration provides school staff with the full power of Raptor Alert
™
from a single-click device


HOUSTON and BALTIMORE – MARCH 13, 2024 –
Raptor Technologies, the leading provider of school safety software, and Alertus Technologies, a leader in emergency mass notification solutions, today announced the integration of the wearable Alertus Wi-Fi Panic Button with Raptor Alert
™
, the most widely used panic button solution amongst U.S. K-12 schools.

The integration of the Alertus Wi-Fi Panic Button with Raptor Alert expedites emergency communication. With a single press, users can seamlessly initiate emergency alerts, activating the full capabilities of the Raptor Alert application, instantly notifying emergency personnel and 911 agencies.

“Substitute teachers and temporary staff members play a vital role in our schools, but they may not be as familiar with safety protocols, procedures and technology,” said Chris Noell, chief product officer at Raptor Technologies. “The Alertus Wi-Fi Panic Button, combined with the features of the Raptor Alert application, empowers any staff with another way to initiate emergency responses, significantly enhancing overall school safety.”

Utilizing the school’s Wi-Fi infrastructure, the Alertus Wi-Fi Panic Button enables quick alert initiation during critical situations. Once an alert is initiated, the responding 911 dispatch is instantly notified, routing critical information about the emergency to first responders. Teachers and staff are also notified and can then utilize real-time group messaging and data sharing through the Raptor Alert application. Schools can configure the panic button to also initiate a one-step activation of existing mass notification solutions through Raptor Connect™, like strobe lights, intercoms, or alarms.

“Every second counts in an emergency, and our top priority is empowering schools to get critical information to their entire community as quickly as possible,” said Amanda Sassano, Vice President of Global Channels and Business Development at Alertus Technologies. “By integrating our wearable panic button with the Raptor Alert system, we’re providing an additional layer of protection that can minimize response times and ensure schools have the tools they need to respond to emergencies effectively.”

This integration underscores Raptor Technologies’ and Alertus’ shared commitment to providing comprehensive safety solutions for educational institutions. Together, they strive to empower schools with the tools and technologies needed to ensure the safety and well-being of students and staff.
