In a recent incident, a school was evacuated while students were between classes. DIR-S was able to notify all staff and account for missing students within four minutes.
At 9:17 a.m. this school sent out an evacuation alert because a teacher noticed mysterious steam coming from the kitchen. They quickly opened their DIR-S app and sent out the alert. Since students were in the halls when the school went into evacuation some teachers ended up having students missing from their class groups, and some had extra students.
This kind of situation brings with it a potential for serious confusion that can take hours to resolve. Thanks to DIR-S, and effective communication platform it provides, the entire situation was resolved in four minutes.
