Administrators at Southeastern Alabama School District
Accessing Actionable Safety Guides on their Smartphones

CARY, NC (May 19, 2015) – SchoolDude, a leading provider of operations management solutions, today announced that Houston County Schools, a school district in southeastern Alabama serving approximately 6,400 K-12 students, is now using its mobile safety platform CrisisManager.

At Houston County Schools’ 14 K-12 school locations, administrators can access CrisisManager for step-by-step procedures to follow during emergencies including inclement weather, active shooter, bomb threat, student injury and other crisis situations.

“We’ve received positive feedback from our school administrators, as CrisisManager offers them an easy to use, detailed guide for handling any emergency,” said Kenny Fondren, technology specialist, Houston County Schools. “CrisisManager complements our existing safety resources, which working together ensures we have a safe teaching and learning environment at Houston County Schools.”

Houston County Schools’ CrisisManager mobile app is customizable and offers one-tap emergency calling, building schematics, emergency exits and lockdown locations relevant to the various schools in the district. Emergency plans, available with or without a Wi-Fi connection, are password-protected, and not available to the general public.

“The unfortunate reality is that we have come to expect emergencies in our schools and those incidents require immediate action,” said Nick Mirisis, director of marketing, SchoolDude. “CrisisManager puts the most accurate emergency plans into the hands of Houston County Schools’ administrators via their smartphones so that they can maintain a safe environment.”
