Grayslake first responders, school officials see new school safety system
About 20 Grayslake-area first responders, emergency dispatchers and school officials attended an educational training session and live demonstration of a new school safety emergency response system Thursday.
The session, held at the Grayslake High School District 127 offices, showcased the cloud-based emergency response safety system, NaviGate Prepared, which offers first responders and school officials immediate, real-time access to imperative school safety and facility information from any Web-authorized device.
According to a news release, NaviGate Prepared securely organizes important emergency preparedness plans and associated information, such as call lists, personnel photos, building maps, detailed floor plans, 360-degree photographs of key building areas, including life-safety and shut-off valve locations and more, in a cloud environment.
It also allows first responders the ability to tap into a school's live security camera feeds.
Officials from the Grayslake Police Department, Grayslake Fire Protection District, District 127 administrators, teachers and staff and members of the Lake County Regional Office of Education administration attended the event.
