Government Safety

A smart alert on every smart phone

Jurisdicton-wide alerts and control

Effective communication is crucial during emergencies

911 is limited

Calls in to 911 only work one-way and can provided fragmented information.

There is no way to instantly and effectively communicate among jurisdictions and first responders when an emergency occurs and while on-site responding to a call.

Those nearby an emergency (other schools, businesses, or neighbors) are unable to receive alerts warning them to avoid the area or stay inside.

911 calls notify you of a problem in an area, they don’t provide you with up-to-date infomration on who is safe and who needs the help.

Alerts can only be received

Most jurisdictions don’t have a uniform method of communicating with their citizens.

Government leadership resorts to one-way alerts such as texts, robo-calls, sirens, and social media.

There is no effective way to “check-in” on citizens to ensure their safety.

Citizens are unable to easily respond to alerts.

Chaos and Confusion

During an emergency, there can be many questions.

Without a solid plan and a clear method of communication,
citizens and government employees can be overwhelmed with panic.

Without knowing what to do, citizens can feel vulnerable and helpless.

What's Happening?

Where is the Problem?

Who else is effected?

Who Needs Help?

Where Do I Go?

Hypothetical Scenario #1

911 call is received – active school shooter scenario.

One option is over-run with confusion and chaos and risks increasing casualties. The other allows for clear communication which saves valuable time and allows for a deliberate and uniform response.

1. Without Mayday

911 call received. Details of the active shooting event are received.

First responders dispatched. Police, fire, and EMS are sent to the location.

An alert (possibly delayed) is signaled to the entire school. This is most likely completed via radios, a fire alarm, or a PA address to the school.

The alert is delayed until someone can find, and get to, a fire alarm or the PA system. Even with radios, someone with a radio needs to be aware of the problem and contact someone else with a radio who then must get to an alert system.

Teachers and students don’t know what to do. Should they escape? Should they lock-down? If a fire alarm is used, neither teachers nor students will know the nature of the emergency nor how to react.

Minutes can pass, at a time where seconds are crucial, trying to figure out what is going on and how they should react.

If they lock-down, they won’t know for how long. If they escape, they won’t know where to go.

Leaders won’t know what is happening. Chaos and confusion rule.

School leadership won’t know where and/or what the problem is to tell first responders or communicate with teachers. Is there one shooter? More? Where are they?

Which classrooms are locked-down and safe? Who is injured and where are they? Who needs extra help? Where are evacuated teachers and students?

Leaders/First Responders don’t know who needs help and who is safe. Precious time will be spent trying to determine where to send emergency resources.

Police won’t know where the shooter(s) are. Medical personnel won’t know what help is needed and where.

Government leadership doesn’t have a clear picture of the issue. Leaders are updated with pieces of information from 911 calls and radio chatter. There is no government representative on-site for information until 18 minutes (on average according to DHS) after the emergency started.

Nearby schools and business are uninformed. The government has no way to effectively notify, and check-in on, nearby schools and businesses.

 

2. With Mayday

911 call received. Details of the active shooting event are received.

First responders dispatched. Police, fire, and EMS are sent to the location

An alert is immediatly signaled to the entire school. Anyone in your system with a smart phone, wherever they are, can send an alert to the entire campus. Safety is crowdsourced.

To prevent false-alarms, schools can choose to have all alerts reviewed by select leadership.

Teachers and students know exactly what to do. Pre-set messages can be sent to students, faculty, and staff. Classrooms can be locked-down in seconds.

Real-time messages can alsop be sent to everyone or specific groups.

Leaders know what is happening and where. Teachers can easily select “locked-down/all safe,” “medical attention needed,” and/or “SOS.”

The Mayday Pro dashoard will show everyone’s status on a map of the school.

Leaders/First Responders know where their help is needed. First responders will “join” your system with their Mayday Pro dashboard upon arrival and know what to do and where.

Government leadership has a clear picture of the issue. Leaders are updated with real-time information through the Mayday Pro dashboard.

Nearby schools and business are notified. The government may send alerts to everyone nearby leting them know to stay inside and away from the event. Those nearby can also check-in “safe” so that resources can be dedicated to where they are needed.

Hypothetical Scenario #2

Natural disaster (tornado, earthquake, flood, etc.)

One option is over-run with confusion and chaos and risks increasing casualties and delaying assistance. The other allows for clear communication which saves valuable time and allows for a deliberate and uniform response.

 

1. Without Mayday

An alert is sent to the affected region. The government may send alerts via phone, text, email, social-media, or siren.

There is no way of knowing if the alert was received, and if so, by whom.

Citizens don’t know what to do. Should they evacuate? Should they lock-down? If a siren is used, citizens won’t know the nature of the emergency nor how to react.

Minutes can pass, at a time where seconds are crucial, trying to figure out what is going on and how they should react.

If they lock-down, they won’t know for how long. If they evacuate, they won’t know where to go.

Leaders/First Responders don’t know who needs help and who is safe. Precious time will be spent trying to determine where to send emergency resources.

Police and fire won’t know where the damage is occuring. Medical personnel won’t know what help is needed and where.

Government leadership doesn’t have a clear picture of the issue. Leaders are updated with pieces of information from 911 calls and radio chatter. There is no government representative on-site until after the damage has occured.

 

2. With Mayday

An alert is immediatly signaled to the entire area. Anyone in your system with a smart phone, wherever they are, can receive and send an alert. Safety is crowdsourced.

Citizens know exactly what to do. Pre-set messages can be sent to certain groups of people (government departments, shelters, citizens, etc.). They’ll know precisely what the issue is and how they should respond.

Real-time messages can alsop be sent to everyone or specific groups.

Leaders/First Responders know where their help is needed. First responders will be able to use the Mayday Pro dashboard to see what is needed and where.

Mayday Pro

The Mayday Pro dashboard allows leadership and first responders to track all emergencies.

In the dashboard, leadership can create and assign specific groups for instructions and messages.

First responders can see where the issue is, who needs help, and who is safe.

Smart Alerts

 

Every other method of communication in an emergency has one of two major flaws:

1. Dumb Alerts.  911 calls, fire alarms, public address systems, and even other safety apps send information ONE WAY. Yes, first responders can be alerted of an active shooter but there’s no way to know which classrooms are locked down safely and which ones need help.

2. Chatter. Radios and text-message based systems allow for two way communication but the information can become overwhelming FAST. It can be extremely difficult to know what is going on when everyone with a radio is transmitting info. Also, not everyone will have a radio.

 

SMART ALERTS:  Mayday Pro allows pre-set messages to go to certain groups of people AND it allows for effective feedback.

For example, in an active shooter scenario, teachers can receive the “lock-down” Mayday alert to their cell phones and they can then check-in “locked-down/safe” or “SOS.”

The Mayday Pro dashboard will then show green-lights where everyone has checked in safe and red alerts where help is needed.

Also, consistent and clear messaging can be sent to EVERYONE – not just those with a working radio.

This is much more effecient than any other method.

Location Tracking

 

Know exactly where an alert occurs. This is useful on your campus but it is vital when staff and students are off-site at school events or on field-trips.

Government administrators can choose certain employees to receive all alerts before they are escalated to a full jurisdiction-wide alert. With this feature, false alarms are reduced and emergency incidents, such as a localized medical emergency, that don’t require a jurisdicition-wide alert can still be communicated.

Administrators can directly contact and communicate with the person(s) who sent an alert.
