AT&T has announced a new solution to help enhance school safety and better protect students and faculty in the event of an emergency – powered by FirstNet, Intrado and AT&T ESInet.
According to AT&T, the solution can reduce emergency response times by seamlessly connecting school staff, school information systems, 911 call takers and first responders.

AT&T says that the new school safety solution is more than just a panic button. Traditional panic buttons notify a preset individual who then contacts 911.
According to the company, it has removed the “middleman” by integrating directly into 911 call centers – also known as public safety answering points (PSAPs) – with their NextGen 911 solution like AT&T ESInet. The solution automatically works in any 911 center without adding new equipment or processes.
“Intrado and AT&T share a common commitment to prioritizing the safety and well-being of our communities and especially of our students, school staff and the surrounding communities and we remain dedicated to investing in technology that aligns with state and federal regulations, in order to safeguard their security,” said Jeff Robertson, CEO, Intrado Life & Safety, Inc.
