Mobile Panic Alert System for School

Real-time coordination among 9-1-1 and first responder agencies

The trusted Mutualink K-12 platform is deployed in hundreds of schools nationwide. It lets you share radio and video with law enforcement instantly. Our software uses an easy drag-and-drop user interface. The system activated by the push of a panic button. Connect with others in your district and with first responders.

Making Critical Information Actionable

Mutualink connects critical information, in the right form, to the right people, at the right time

…no matter what technology they use.

Mutualink instantly shares video footage and radio communications in real time with first responders who are part of the incident. The incident is a communications session that can be set up ad hoc or as a rules-based result of a panic button or sensor event activation.

This is an innovative collaboration tool that spans the entire community. Our schools benefit from the experience our first responders have on the platform. Our goal is to connect with law enforcement more quickly, creating better situational awareness before they even reach the school. We’re also seeing a better way to work between schools.

Superintendent of Schools in Warwick.

The ability to instantly and securely share multimedia information in an emergency situation — including live video feeds, school building blueprints and police and fire radio to school radio and public address audio — is a potentially life-saving asset to first responders and the students and teachers they are protecting. The fact that Mutualink K12 ensures that all parties maintain control over their resources cuts down on time-wasting red-tape while protecting the privacy of everyone involved.
