About Alyssa’s Law
Alyssa Alhadeff was 14 years old when she tragically lost her life during the Parkland Shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School. 17 students and faculty were killed during the shooting, and 17 more were critically injured. The New York Times reported that poor communication, slow response time, and numerous failures on behalf of law enforcement officers contributed to the devastating impact of the Parkland shooting.
Alyssa’s mother founded the nonprofit, Make Our Schools Safe, which is aimed at making all 131,000 K-12 schools in America safe from gun violence and active shooters. With her help, legislation was created in the wake of the Parkland shooting travesty and named in Alyssa’s memory. Governor Abbott signed SB 838/HB 669 into law in June 2023. The law requires school districts and open-enrollment charter schools to provide silent panic alert technology in classrooms by the the 2025 school year. This legislation is based upon the previous Alyssa’s Law legislation passed in Florida and other states.
How Can Schools Keep Their Students Safe?
FireTron has a long history been designing and installing the most reliable silent panic alarm systems currently use across Texas. Firetron systems are specifically designed to make sure faculties have a fast and reliable connection to the authorities. Specifically, Firetron systems are designed with call-assurance and redundancy in mind – a panic system doesn’t secure a school if it doesn’t work in an emergency. The Alyssa’s Law emergency alert systems we create are designed to be user friendly and allow for uninterrupted communication when it matters the most.
Your school will get the additional benefit of owning the entire Alyssa’s Law emergency alert system rather than perpetually leasing and “app”. Other than periodic maintenance, you only pay one time for your Alyssa’s Law emergency alert system.
