In preparing for the coming school year, we have met with some outstanding people who have been willing to help us spread the word about how much good DIR-S can do for schools.
We were featured in a news story ON KSL 5 news, with Canyons School district earlier this week.
We were also able to conduct an interview with a woman named Natasha Wilson, who along with being a high school teacher, has a daughter who suffers from tonic-clonic seizures.
In all kinds of emergency situations, it is imperative to make every second count when responding to emergency situations. When a person is having a seizure, it is very likely that they will not only cause harm to themselves when the seizure hits, but as Natasha so aptly describes in her interview, it is a traumatic thing for anyone who is present when it takes place.
DIR-S makes it possible for schools to respond to emergency situations much faster than ever before. For example, when someone has a seizure or an allergic reaction, teachers generally not medically trained, and there is a lot of misinformation as to what should be done in these different instances. Either way, it needs to be responded to in a timely manner.
If there is one student in the classroom who is having a seizure, allergic reaction, or whatever it may be. The teacher needs to be able to take care of the whole rest of the people in the classroom, while trained medical professionals take care of the student who is having the problem.
With the ability DIR-S provides to instantly indicate where the emergency is happening, along with the added ability for school officials to stay updated while the situation is being handled, schools and teachers are now able to respond to and work through emergency situations faster than ever before.
The adaptable and efficient nature of DIR-S is what makes it so outstanding. It is meant to be used in every situation ranging from an active shooter, fights between students, natural disasters, to seizures and other medical emergencies.
This week, we have had several opportunities to meet with schools and other clients. It has been an incredibly exciting week, and we are continually, more and more encouraged about how many incredible feedback responses we have received.
