9. Share with 911

School safety has never been more important, and Share with 911 aims to empower school staff and emergency personnel to act and communicate quickly and proactively in a variety of emergency situations through the use of smart phones, tablets, laptops, desktops, or any web-connected device to provide real-time information on emergency situations to first responders and colleagues. Through a very simple interface, any authorized member of a school’s staff can initiate a lockdown. After the lockdown is initiated, every staff member and law enforcement officer in the community is immediately alerted via a text message and/or eMail. http://www.sharewith911.com/
