Think back to your school years for a moment. Any time there was a drill, how long did it take to get everyone accounted for and back into the regular operations in the school? For most drills, the average run-through time is about 30-60 minutes. Even for just a drill, this is an exceptionally long amount of time making sure that everyone in the school is safe and accounted for.
Traditionally, most schools use some form of signaling as administrators have to check on each teacher. This might involve holding up a certain collared paper in your evacuation location, sliding a paper under your locked door in a lockdown, or any number of other somewhat tedious practices.
This is where DIR-S comes into play. In schools that use DIR-S, reaction times are cut down drastically. The process of responding to both drill and live situations is expedited immensely because users are able to relate more information in a matter of seconds than has heretofore been possible with the traditional methods of emergency communication in schools.
Take a look back at some of our previous blog posts to see countless case studies showing exactly how DIR-S is able to do this.
