Technology to help keep schools safe

Powered by FirstNet®, Intrado® and AT&T ESINet™

FirstNet® and Intrado’s school safety technology helps reduce response times by connecting school staff, building equipment, school information systems, 9-1-1 telecommunicators, public safety dispatchers and first responders during emergencies.

The FirstNet Intrado school safety technology will allow you to send emergency information directly to 9-1-1 dispatcher via device-agnostic platform.

  • Intrado inserts school name, location details and other pre-defined data directly into the 9-1-1 Call Center standard call stream.
  • 9-1-1 dispatchers no longer need to ask for type of emergency, name and location. This translates to time saved.

Your district can benefit from a comprehensive, yet flexible solution that can easily adapt and scale as your needs and funding opportunities evolve.

“When I first heard about FirstNet, it immediately sounded like something
that we needed for our school buses. I presented the idea to our board,
my supervisors, my superintendent, and my district manager, and everyone
was unanimously on board. The safety aspect is really what sold us. If a
student is unable to be located, I can quickly send out a message to all
appropriate parties and significantly reduce the time that student is not
accounted for. That’s what we value the most. Peace of mind.”
