Teachers, Staff and First Responders Serving Ritenour and Riverview Gardens School Districts Can Access Emergency Procedures via Mobile Devices
CARY, NC (Sept. 16, 2015) – SchoolDude, a leading provider of operations management solutions, today announced that two St. Louis-area K-12 school districts, Ritenour and Riverview Gardens, are using its mobile safety platform CrisisManager.
Ritenour School District needed an effective mobile resource to communicate emergency response procedures across its 10 schools, serving more than 6,000 students. The school district’s password-protected mobile safety plans are also accessible to local emergency responders, including six local police departments and a local fire department.
“In addition to our school officials, CrisisManager gives local police departments immediate access to safety plans including building diagrams with exterior door detail and entry points right on their mobile devices,” said Mike Wieland, assistant to the superintendent, Ritenour School District. “During an emergency, when seconds are critical, CrisisManager helps our teachers, staff and first responders make quick decisions to keep our students safe.”
Separately, with 5,200 students in St. Louis County, Riverview Gardens School District’s administrators, teachers and staff are also now using CrisisManager to access emergency response scenarios on their mobile devices. Detailed plans are available to communicate important safety information for crisis situations such as evacuations, options for active shooter response, and bomb threat procedures. In collaboration with the School Safety Teams, Riverview Gardens also intends to use the flexibility of CrisisManager to customize building-level emergency plans.
CrisisManager also provides support for more common emergency scenarios such as inclement weather, first aid, field trip safety and bullying incidents.
“While Ritenour and Riverview Gardens had comprehensive paper-based emergency manuals, now their plans are more easily accessible to school officials on mobile devices,” said Nick Mirisis, director of marketing and business development, SchoolDude. “We look forward to working with both school districts, as they continue to offer more emergency-based resources.”
Ritenour and Riverview Gardens school districts made CrisisManager officially available to their faculty and staff this month. For more, visit https://www.schooldude.com/crisismanager.
