Mobile App Empowers Educators Facing Campus Threats

Educators reacting to campus emergencies have a new ally. Crisis360, a web-based and mobile application suite for Apple, Android and Windows devices, allows universities to rapidly communicate critical information to ensure safety and maintain business continuity.

Whether facing natural disasters, public health emergencies or terrorism, emergency responders need accurate, up-to-date information to save lives, better protect assets and recover quickly. But gathering, organizing and communicating status is often a daunting, time-consuming challenge.

With Crisis360, emergency management teams have the complete situational picture at their fingertips. The application has already become an integral part of the emergency response plan at the University of California San Francisco.

"Crisis360 addresses the need to acquire situational awareness and achieve a common operating picture quickly," said Christopher Jones, Director of Homeland Security Emergency Management for UCSF. "The app's potential continues to amaze me every time I open it."

Jon Shale, Director of Product Development for Crisis360, says that the app's potential reaches beyond emergency management because universities, government agencies and businesses can tailor the app to maintain a complete picture for their organization.

"Crisis360 has been designed from the beginning to be completely customizable and flexible for any campus emergency management team," Shale said.

In March, Shale and Jones will discuss mobile-enabled situational awareness at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga's inaugural "Best Practices in Higher Education Emergency Management" conference.

Crisis360 also includes FlexOrg TM, which allows any organizational hierarchy to be modeled and tracked with unique data elements through reusable templates. Emergency managers can maintain and deliver insight to the organization anytime, anywhere.

Crisis360 is available for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows devices, with specific solutions for Higher Education, Healthcare, Restaurants, Financial Institutions, Property Management and Government.
