Superintendent Dr. Merv Daugherty says though they have drilled and drilled staff and students how to respond to a critical incident situation, seconds matter .
And, whether it is a medical emergency, fire or active threat in the building, notifications can be delivered through the app to the county’s emergency communications center with the simple push of a button. The system is live now.
