Siyata Mobile, CrisisGo Bring Instant Emergency Communications to School Bus Drivers
In an effort to increase school safety, not only on campus but off campus as well, Siyata Mobile has announced that the Uniden UV350 in-vehicle smartphone has integrated with the CrisisGo emergency alert and communication system. The CrisisGo app, combined with the Uniden UV350, keeps school bus drivers connected to first responders, dispatch, and fleet managers through an instant unified mobile communication solution.
The UV350 is the first dedicated in-vehicle phablet approved and FirstNet-ready, built for the specific needs of commercial drivers and first responders while integrating functionality critical to emergency first responders. CrisisGo allows teachers, school administrators and their security teams to rapidly alert key personnel of potential risks. Alerts can also be escalated to district administrators and first responders. CrisisGo also enables those in crisis to stay in constant contact by sharing timely and relevant information as the situation unfolds.
CrisisGo is the only incident management platform that coordinates alerts, messages and notifications through communication and IoT devices across and within first responders, school safety and security teams, teachers and staff, and the entire education community.
“Extending school safety beyond the campus and school grounds is a challenge for many of our customers,” said Chris Vuillaume, General Manager for CrisisGo. “By working with Siyata Mobile and integrating with the Uniden UV350 device, we can now extend student safety to school buses. Giving drivers the ability to instantly call for help and stay connected with support personnel will reduce response times to emergencies that can happen on a bus. Anything from a flat tire or mechanical breakdown to a medical situation with a student – Siyata and CrisisGo ensure that drivers can instantly call for help and get support to manage the incident.”
Marc Seelenfreund, CEO of Siyata Mobile added, “CrisisGo allows drivers to immediately alert the necessary people in times of emergency. This is an ideal partner for Siyata as drivers, first responders, students and parents will be safer knowing that they can drive in a safer environment and be in contact quickly with the right people in times of emergency.”
