CBS KHOU 11: For one Houston school, help is a button away
HOUSTON — When there’s an emergency at school, every second counts when getting help. One school in Houston has a new tool to get help fast exactly where it’s needed.
St. Francis Episcopal School is home to about 830 young minds ranging from 2-year-olds to the 10th grade.
“Our school is a joyful happy place,” said Head of School Steve Lovejoy. “We want it to feel great for them to come to school.”
Last year, Lovejoy brought the Enseo MadeSafe device to St. Francis. It’s a button worn around every staff member’s neck. If there’s an emergency, they hold the button down which sends out an alert. The device is able to connect with staff or police.
