The Power of a Common Operating Picture and Emergency Management Software
Paper and one-dimensional digital maps are obsolete for today’s school emergencies. And overly complex virtual reality or 3D maps that are difficult to access and slow to download are far too cumbersome to operationalize when seconds matter.
Collaborative Response Graphics® (CRGs®) from Critical Response Group prepare first responders for more effective command and control when responding to unfamiliar locations and provide school personnel a way to communicate precisely where an incident is happening and where assistance is needed.
CRGs are standardized, site-specific, and geo-rectified “common operating pictures” that combine floor plans, high-resolution imagery, and a gridded overlay together into one digital map, enabling first responders to rapidly understand the layout of the facility regardless of their familiarity with the location.
Use a MICRO CRG to understand the detailed structure of the building:
Use a MACRO CRG to understand the outer perimeter of the entire property or location:
This rapid comprehension combined with a clear, concise, common language allows for the fastest response to an emergency once first responders arrive on site.
Raptor Alert® mobile panic button enables staff to initiate a response from wherever they are on campus. This instantly sends detailed, situation-specific alerts to first responders, teachers, and staff across devices to inform them of what action is needed based on their district protocols.
Once an incident is contained, the process of student-family reunification must begin as soon as possible. Raptor Reunification® aligns with the proven practices of The “I Love U Guys” Foundation® Standard Reunification Method™ (SRM) and ensures your district follows each step in the process; reunifying families up to four times faster. And with shared access to MACRO CRGs, the logistics of the district’s reunification plan can be clearly communicated between school personnel and law enforcement agencies.
Through the Raptor and CRG partnership, Raptor Alert and Reunification users can:
