Abstract

SAFE will be an app that provides accountability for students during emergencies in school, such as fires, intruders, and tornadoes. Mass panic could occur, which could lead to students being separated from their teachers. Currently in an emergency situation students would have to sign in on a clipboard. This manual method could take several hours to account for all students. Therefore, we are developing a digital method for accountability using an app. When an emergency is occurring, an administrator, law enforcement official, or front office worker would send an emergency message by text to teachers for evacuating the building. Students would be instructed to move quickly to the nearest exit and meet at the designated safe spot. Once they arrive they will scan IDs with staff present to indicate they are safe. Next, we plan to have the app developed to allow students to self-report their status by clicking a “Safe” or “Not Safe” button when they arrive at a safe location. Administration, Teachers, Staff, and Law Enforcement would be able to see their results to focus on those that have not reported in yet or need help. The goal of this entire project is to shrink the amount of time it takes to account for all students during emergency situations thus potentially saving lives.
