4 Questions to Ask When Selecting an Emergency Management App.

Educational institutions are working hard to improve safety conditions on their campuses.

For instance, the University of Kentucky plans to spend $5 million on the installation of almost 2,000 security cameras on campus to help prevent future crimes, and other institutions have already invested a great deal of money in security cameras. Penn State has installed 2,000 security cameras throughout its campus since 1995 and plans to add another 422 cameras this year.

Unfortunately, not all schools have the budgets to support such a large investment, and expensive security equipment is only one part of the solution. If you are among the 52% of institutions who need an affordable solution to improve their crisis and emergency response system, SchoolDude’s emergency management app has you covered.
