iSIGN Offers Free Security Alert Messaging Solution To Parkland, Florida School

iSIGN Media Solutions Inc., an interactive mobile advertising solutions provider based in Toronto, announced it is offering free installation of its Security Alert Messaging (SAM) solution into the Marjory Stoneham Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where the mass killings happened.

iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. has reached out to the Broward County School Board with the free offer.

iSIGN's SAM solution aims to rapidly alert students and faculty and give clear instructions on the quickest and safest method of avoiding the threat.  

While SAM aids in evacuating the premises, it can also alert police, EMT services, fire departments and other first responders depending on the nature of the emergency.

The solution can be integrated with existing alarms and other security measures to ensure that authorities arrive, and school attendees evacuate in as little time as possible.

The company considers Broward County an example of where the SAM system could demonstrate its effectiveness. 

"With such a high concentration of relatively unprotected children on site, school systems have a higher than normal risk profile as children do not have the maturity to react wisely to a variety of possible dangers that can impact any civic environment," stated Mr. Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer.

The initial deployment would connect all students and faculty with cellphones to the SAM system, with the ability to add digital signage screens, close proximity transmitters, and connection to hardware-based alarm systems and social media when desired.
