For schools and educational institutions, the safety of students is always top of mind and an extremely critical priority. Schools are addressing student safety challenges with technology solutions that provide situational awareness for whatever arises. Convergint worked with ASR Alert Systems to deploy a solution to help Legacy Christian Academy support the safety of its students and staff by implementing state-of-the-art emergency response technology. Senior staff recently participated in professional training as the ASR Alert System was put in place for the 2022-2023 school year.

ASR Alert Systems is a patented, cutting-edge critical incident response technology, specializing in the field of alert notifications to law enforcement and first responders. The system is designed to allow communication directly with law enforcement with the press of a button, reducing response times for better crisis management in the event of a violent incident. The technology can be customized to any building and is designed to integrate with existing technology solutions and critical incident response policies.

“Timing and accurate information are key elements in a critical incident. Law enforcement must be able to quickly obtain real-time information to interact with its school partners ensuring they successfully navigate a situation. With the ASR Alert Systems in place, schools, law enforcement, and dispatch can work as one to make this happen.”

Fully automated direct communication to first responders

The successful deployment of the ASR Threat Alert System solution gives students and staff at the Legacy Christian Academy the ability to summon help in an emergency with the simple push of a button. By integrating this technology with their current response policies and procedures, the academy is helping to provide the best possible outcome should a crisis strike.

“Safety and security continue to be top priorities at Legacy Christian Academy, and because of this commitment, we are the first Minnesota school to install the ASR Alert System. It will put everyone, including first responders, on the same page in a matter of seconds.”

~Jake Mulvihill, Head of School, Legacy Christian Academy
