It seems like every day we turn on the TV, there is news about another tragedy occurring at an elementary school, middle school, or high school. Whether you are a superintendent, board member, principal, teacher, or kitchen staff, you love and want to protect the children in your care.
It may seem like this threat is out of your control, but there is something we can do together… reduce the notification time and response time of law enforcement arriving at the scene of these tragedies.
The Guard911® family of services has something no other security app has – an established network of 65,000+ federal, state, and local law enforcement officers nationwide who have joined the free law enforcement-exclusive Hero911® network. Every time a SchoolGuard® panic button is used, all officers who maintain the Hero911® app and are in close proximity to the protected property are notified immediately. This means quicker notification time that will allow for quicker response time in order to save lives and treat the injured.
We at Guard911® are passionate about saving innocent lives, and our SchoolGuard® app has been deployed in many schools all across the country. Is it in yours?
Why SchoolGuard® Active Shooter App?
If you worry that our beloved country and our children are increasingly under attack, you are right. The violence inflicted upon our children in our schools is unthinkable, yet school shootings are happening at an alarming rate.
The only true defense against this threat is to reduce law enforcement notification time and response time to these incidents.
According to Homeland Security, it takes 4-11 minutes for a 911 call to be processed and first responders dispatched, and 4-18 minutes for a first responder to be on the scene and act. SchoolGuard active shooter alert app shortens these notification and response times and greatly improves the chance of saving lives, with the touch of a smartphone screen.
No other emergency alert app in the country gives you a network of over 65,000 federal, state, and local Hero911® first responders who can be there faster than those dispatched through 911 and the precious seconds needed When Seconds Save Lives®.
We like that it’s usable on any smartphone and very simple to operate – even in panic situations. It isn’t complicated with a bunch of bells and whistles that we don’t need, which is helpful in an emergency – it’s not always easy to think straight in stressful situations.

How It Works
SchoolGuard® active shooter app technology is simple to use and powerful.
- Approved staff download the SchoolGuard app to their smartphones.
- In the event of an armed intruder, active shooter, or another emergency, approved staff members press the panic button on the screen.
- An alert is immediately sent to all Hero911 participating federal, state, and local law enforcement officers, on and off duty, who are in close proximity to the property.
- The app also simultaneously speed dials 911 and connects the staff member to emergency services.
- All other staff on the property with the app are immediately alerted of the emergency, and a map of the location of the initial alert is displayed on their mobile phones. The map provides situational awareness to your staff, which allows them to react accordingly.
- There are also the Principal Push™ and Teacher Assist™ features for private group messaging and warnings for non-life-threatening situations.
Place a mobile panic button in the hands of your staff, empower them to stop active shooters with reduced notification time, and keep children safe with SchoolGuard – When Seconds Save Lives.
For over three years, Bay County Schools have relied on safeguarding their school district with the SchoolGuard service offered by Guard911 and I remain a strong advocate to this service.
