WILLOUGHBY, OH (WOIO) - Willoughby-Eastlake City Schools have a new school safety emergency response system. The system is to improve school safety and crisis preparedness and response.
The cloud-based technology, known as NaviGate Prepared, securely stores important emergency preparedness plans and associated information, such as call lists, personnel photos and building maps.
This allows authorized users, local first responders and 911 dispatchers access to this information, 24/7, via any web connected device.
First responders can also tap into the district's live security camera feeds. This gives them 'eyes on' access to any crisis situation, as soon as the emergency call comes in, even before arriving on scene.
The new system will be implemented for the start of the 2014-15 school year.
