Improve the response time of law enforcement during emergencies in public schools
What Is Alyssa's Law?
Alyssa's Law is critical legislation to improve the response time of law enforcement when life-threatening emergency occurs at K-12 schools. It mandates that all elementary and secondary school buildings be equipped with silent panic alarms that directly notify law enforcement. When seconds count, law enforcement will get on the scene quicker, take down a threat and triage any victims.
Alyssa Alhedeff was a 14-year-old student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas Highschool in Parkland Florida. She was a victim on February 14, 2018, when a former student killed seventeen people in a mass school shooting.
Legislation was expedited in the wake of the tragedy and the last version of the law was named in Alyssa's memory.
Alyssa's Law was PASSED in New Jersey on February 6, 2019. Alyssa's Law PASSED in Florida on 6/30/2020.
Arizona, Nebraska, New York, and Texas, also have versions of Alyssa's Law that have been submitted to the legislature and are still being processed by committees.

How To Prepare For Alyssa's Law
Public elementary and secondary schools can work with local alarm and telephone system installers to stay ahead of legislation. Being proactive means schools have more power to decide when alarm system upgrades and changes take place.
Waiting to make these changes until Alyssa's Law is ratified exposes students and staff to increased risk.
Talk with your local alarm or telephone system installer today about how you can decrease emergency response times and stay ahead of Alyssa's Law.

With the addition of RapidSOS and 911inform, our 911 Center has increased its' capabilities while decreasing response times. The information pushing out to the department officers provides timely information while keeping everyone informed of an incident. The officers and dispatchers are provided with accurate mapping information to specific locations within our schools. We look forward to continuing our partnership with both platforms.
As the first RapidSOS 9-1-1 partner in the state of New Jersey, the Monmouth County Sheriff's Office quickly recognized the game changing technology provided to our public safety agencies and our residents. That coupled with 911inform creates a powerful set of technological tools and places it at the hands of our first responders when needed the most during critical incidents.

Responding to emergencies has been easier and faster with 911inform. Cuts out the guess work knowing exactly where we are needed and the capabilities of allowing us to access doors or paging into rooms helps us to save lives.

I was impressed with how easy this platform was to use. They promise exactly what you're looking for: fast and quick notifications. About 3 minutes have been cut off our response time. Plus, all the features they offer it's a never-ending solution to school safety.
