Kirkwood Schools Among First to Use CrisisGo App for Security & Mobile Emergency Communications

St. Louis-based CrisisGo is an emergency planning and communications platform that puts emergency response plans on mobile devices and desktops. The Kirkwood School District was one of the first to sign up for CrisisGo after the company launched, helping to grow the technology. Now more Missouri schools are downloading the CrisisGo app, taking advantage of a free program offered for members of the Missouri School Boards’ Association called Free Teacher Panic and Parent Emergency Notification System. Additionally, CrisisGo says thousands of schools nationwide have officially signed up for the Free Teacher Panic Button program offered through a partnership with AASA, the School Superintendents Association.

This series explores the latest science and technology news in the St. Louis area.
