  • A 2011 safety assessment uncovered coverage gaps in Rescue Union School District’s paging system, leading district officials to begin a yearlong evaluation of possible solutions.
  • Consultations with law enforcement personnel, parents and vendor partners helped RUSD develop an everyday and emergency communications system that includes InformaCast emergency notification software, AND indoor IP speakers and Valcom outdoor IP speakers.
  • Network upgrades to support the new system, along with speaker installations and the software rollout, began in late December 2012.
  • All seven campuses are now equipped with and using the solution.
