Protect your school from any emergency with a mobile panic button and alert system
“Alyssa’s Law”—named after Alyssa Alhadeff, a victim of the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy—requires public schools, including charter schools, to have silent panic alert systems linked directly to first responders and law enforcement agencies.
Already passed into law in New Jersey and Florida, Alyssa’s Law is quickly gaining traction around the U.S.
Governor Phil Murphy signed Assembly Bill A764 (Alyssa’s Law) into law in February 2019, mandating that all New Jersey public elementary and secondary schools be equipped with a panic alarm linked to local law enforcement.
In July 2020, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed Alyssa’s Law (SB-70) into law, requiring public and charter schools to have mobile panic buttons installed that directly link to law enforcement and first responder agencies.
In Nebraska, Alyssa’s Law was introduced by Senator Tony Vargas of Omaha (LB1156).
In New York, bills for Alyssa’s Law have been submitted by State Senator David Carlucci (S03620) and Assemblywomen Ellen Jaffee (A06234).
For the state of Texas, Alyssa’s Law was introduced by Representative Shawn Thierry.
There are two federal bills that have been introduced. H.R.4606: This bill would require that each elementary and secondary school have a silent alarm to alert local law enforcement authorities and emergency responders about a safety issue at the school. H.R.3665 – The School Violence Prevention and Mitigation Act of 2019 would establish a grant program to fund facility security risk assessments and security improvements.
A mobile panic button, like Raptor Alert, enables teachers and staff to quickly and discreetly alert teachers, staff, and first responders of an emergency from wherever they are on campus.
Alerting others that there is a crisis is only an initial step in emergency response. To fully protect everyone inside of your schools, your panic alert system needs to seamlessly integrate with a comprehensive emergency management software.
