No matter the situation, DIR-S brings together teachers, administrators, and responders more efficiently than any other emergency communication platform.
Time and time again, schools are able to respond to any type of emergency situation using DIR-S than has ever previously been possible for them.
Read the following case study to see how DIR-S was used to keep everyone safe in a potential weapons threat.

LOCKOUT alert initiated at 8:32 a.m. by Responder Chris Trager.
8:33 a.m. (District Administrator): This is not a drill; I will keep you all informed here on DIR-S as I can.
8:35 a.m. (Responder): Report of a person in the student parking lot waving a weapon out the window. Vehicle located unoccupied in the North student parking lot with an airsoft gun inside. School remains in lockout while we investigate.
8:45 a.m. Alert ESCALATED to LOCKDOWN by Responder Chris Trager.
8:46 a.m. (Responder) For safety reasons we escalated to a lockdown. There were five students potentially involved. Working on getting them all contained.
8:54 a.m. (Responder): Lifting the LOCKDOWN. All students have been identified and contained. No weapons are outstanding.
Because of DIR-S, this situation which could have caused panic and taken hours to handle was completely taken care of in a matter of roughly 30 minutes. No one was harmed, and everyone involved in the situation was able to stay informed as to the information pertinent to them.
