Snohomish County schools to use ‘panic button’ smart phone app

The Associated Press

EVERETT — School districts in Snohomish County are planning a “panic button” system at more than 80 schools.

It’s a smart phone application that — with the push of the button — automatically dials 911 and notifies designated people about an emergency.

The Daily Herald reports two schools in Everett started testing the panic button in August and a larger rollout is planned to begin next week.

The program is funded by a $250,000 grant from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.
