​Latin School of Chicago Uses InformaCast for Emergency Notification, Lockdowns and Severe Weather Alerts

 
 

 

​Latin School of Chicago is a private k-12 school in the heart of the city. The school was founded in 1888 and is an established part of the community. Approximately 1,100 students attend Latin each year. 

 

Business Challenge:

The school used an analog system for emergency notifications. The old system, which consisted of a single microphone that triggered a message in each of the school’s buildings, didn’t allow administrators to respond to emergencies quickly enough, which put staff and students at risk.

 

Solution:

The school now uses InformaCast to immediately alert staff and students when there’s an emergency. Notifications can be triggered at the touch of a button, sending text and audio notifications to all of the school’s Cisco phones and broadcasts audio to overhead speakers in the school’s multiple buildings. Administrators also receive automatic e-mail notifications whenever an emergency message goes out, which helps them respond faster.
