NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Understanding now more than ever that school shootings are a very real fear for parents and school administrators, an Ohio company has customized its proven emergency response solution for use in schools nationwide.
NaviGate™ is an advanced, Web-based system that gives first responders immediate, eyes-on access to critical information, such as maps, floor plans, emergency protocols, call lists and real-time video feeds where there are cameras. Information is stored on secure, redundant off-site servers—in the digital "cloud"— and is not affected by physical barriers or on-the-ground crisis situations. The technology is already installed in more than 1,100 locations across America and abroad, including the Wills Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower), as well as healthcare systems, universities and commercial real estate in major cities. Now it's being adapted in a cost-effective means for schools under the name NaviGate™ Prepared.
Critical information can be accessed via any Internet-enabled device, including on-board computers in police cruisers and hand-held devices. Having key resources in hand before arriving at the site of an emergency significantly reduces assessment time and expedites informed action.
"Our covenant as parents is to do anything and everything we can to keep our kids safe," said Bennett Fierman, Ph.D., president of Lauren Innovations. "We at Lauren Innovations believe that NaviGate Prepared™ is an invaluable safety tool, one that helps schools mitigate threats of all kinds."
NaviGate Prepared™ is designed to assist school and community leaders in meeting their goals for emergency preparedness and prevention. "Safety and security are our highest priority in the district," said Curtis Clough, superintendent of the Strasburg-Franklin Local Schools in Strasburg, Ohio. "We implemented NaviGate Prepared™ three months ago, and this month we look forward to welcoming first responders into our school buildings to learn our emergency procedures."
NaviGate™ has been designated as an anti-terrorism-level technology by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security,exceeded expectations in all critical areas as evaluated by The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) and was recently added as an authorized vendor to the GSA Federal Supplier List.
