Governor Announces State-Funded Emergency Mobile App for Schools

Governor Mike Parson announced a new state-funded emergency mobile app that school staff members can use to alert first responders to emergencies.

Public and charter schools will be able to sign up for the app which is free to schools and users.

The governor said the app would expedite and streamline emergency response by giving school staff the ability to quickly start an alert from their phone or computer.
