Latin School of Chicago uses InformaCast for sending school lockdown and weather alerts, locking electronic doors, and more
Singlewire Software, developer of innovative applications centered around fast and reliable emergency notification, today announced the release and publication of the case study, “Latin School of Chicago: Coordinated Notifications and Lockdown.”
The case study features Latin School of Chicago, a private K-12 school located in the heart of the city. The school, which was founded in 1888, is an established part of the community and has ties with several local organizations.
Latin School of Chicago implemented InformaCast to immediately alert staff and students in the event of an emergency. With the touch of a button, the system can send text and audio notifications to all of the school's Cisco IP phones and broadcast audio to overhead speakers in the school's multi-building campus. Administrators also receive automatic email notifications whenever an emergency message goes out, which helps staff members respond faster. InformaCast also integrates with the school's automatic/electronic door lock system to remotely lock doors in the event of a shelter-in-place emergency.
