AUSTIN, Texas (February 29, 2024) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASERapidDeploy, the leader in cloud-native technology solutions for public safety, today announced a partnership with Singlewire Software (Singlewire), a pioneer in panic button solutions for enhanced safety and security, to enhance emergency response capabilities for schools. By integrating Singlewire's award-winning InformaCast technology with RapidDeploy's Next Generation 911 (NG911) Radius Mapping solution, the partnership aims to empower public safety to respond swiftly and effectively to critical incidents, enhancing the safety and security of students, faculty, and staff.

The collaboration between RapidDeploy and Singlewire will enable Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) to seamlessly integrate panic button alert notifications into RapidDeploy's Radius Mapping platform. This integration will facilitate data from Singlewire ‘s panic button to local 911 agencies when a panic alarm is activated, enhancing situational awareness and expediting emergency response efforts during school-related incidents.

"School safety is a top priority for Public Safety across the US, and our partnership with Singlewire underscores our commitment to provide schools with the tools and technologies they need to protect their communities," said Steve Raucher, CEO of RapidDeploy. "By integrating Singlewire's InformaCast panic button solutions with RapidDeploy, we are providing a single platform for all emergency notification solutions, allowing schools and first responders to streamline response efforts and reduce response times. The safety and well-being of our schools is of critical importance, and this feels like one step closer to safer schools and communities.”

Singlewire's InformaCast technology enables schools to deliver intrusive, attention-getting audio, text and visual alerts throughout their facilities and to people's mobile devices. With its robust incident management capabilities, InformaCast empowers schools to respond effectively to emergencies while streamlining daily communications.

"Singlewire is proud to partner with RapidDeploy to enhance emergency response solutions for schools," said Terry Swanson, President and CEO of Singlewire. "By integrating our panic button technology with RapidDeploy's platform, together, we will empower schools to enhance their emergency response capabilities and better protect students, teachers, and first responders."

The partnership between RapidDeploy and Singlewire aligns with the immediate market need to align with school safety regulations, such as Alyssa's Law, by delivering enhanced emergency 911 response capabilities to schools. As school-related emergencies continue to rise, the integration of panic button alert data directly into the RapidDeploy Radius Mapping solution will play a crucial role in improving communication and situational awareness during critical incidents.

Through this partnership, mass notifications can be initiated, and response scenarios activated in a threat. This offers advantages not only to schools but also to businesses, government agencies, retail establishments, healthcare facilities, and public venues that may need to initiate lockdowns and security measures for their facilities.
