On February 7th, 2019 just before 12 p.m. PST, the Share911 platform was utilized by the Hayward Unified School District and their police department in Hayward, CA to place one elementary school on lockdown and three others on shelter-in-place as police search for an armed robbery suspect in the area in the 26000 block of Gading Road.
As the situation progressed, additional schools were asked to shelter-in-place out of precaution. During the near two hour-long incident, 158 employees were in constant lateral communication with the police, school district officials and their co-workers, providing real-time, collective intelligence on the safety of staff and students to incident commanders.
“This multiple school incident is a perfect example of the benefit of our platform, enabling law enforcement to alert employees and administrators to take action, provide collective intelligence for everyone involved and account for everyone in real-time from a single source of truth” says Erik Endress, CEO of OnScene Technologies. “Without our platform, police would be calling individual schools, time would be wasted and nobody would have visibility to what was happening in these buildings during the incident.”
