Trinity Basin Preparatory Improves Emergency Response Across 12 Campuses with CriticalArc’s SafeZone
When a user activates the duress button on the SafeZone app, their identity and location are shared with the TBP Safety Department for a coordinated response.
DENVER, Colo. — Trinity Basin Preparatory (TBP), a Pre-K-12 grade free public charter school, is introducing enhanced safety and security for its 6,700-plus students with the adoption of SafeZone® technology from CriticalArc.
SafeZone is a unified technology platform for safety, security, emergency management, and well-being support for the education and healthcare sectors. TBP has confirmed the introduction of SafeZone as part of its commitment to the safety and well-being of students and staff at its 12 campuses in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex.
SafeZone’s panic button function enables all TBP’s authorized personnel to request immediate assistance at the touch of a button, the company says. The technology’s Command and Control functions are said to ensure the fastest possible response, allowing more efficient coordination of the school’s 12 Safety Response teams, comprising of school principals, medical, and security resource officers.
When a user activates the duress button on the SafeZone app, their identity and location are shared with the TBP Safety Department for a rapid coordinated response. The system allows two-way communications, as well as mass communications and targeted communications to specific groups as defined by location or responsibility.
In the control room and on first responder mobile handsets, SafeZone shows the locations and identities of users calling for assistance and maps the locations of all responders, speeding up team actions and making coordination more effective.
“SafeZone resonates with TBP’s unwavering commitment to the wellbeing of our school community,” said Delerick McNeil, Head of Safety and Security at Trinity Basin Preparatory. “Our students, teachers, staff, and visitors can now rest assured, knowing that help is just a touch away, anytime, and anywhere. This partnership with CriticalArc reinforces our dedication to nurturing a safe, secure, and innovative learning environment.”
The decision to implement SafeZone was the result of extensive research and evaluation of various safety technologies in the market. TBP was impressed by SafeZone’s track record of success at numerous educational institutions in Texas and across the U.S., according to the company.
“We are delighted to be supporting Trinity Basin Preparatory with the introduction of SafeZone as part of its wider safety strategy,” said Glenn Farrant, CEO and Founder at CriticalArc “By ensuring the most efficient response to emergency situations, Trinity Basin Preparatory is creating a safer learning environment for all.”
