Lee County school district, the 9th largest district in the state, educates more than 90,000 students a year in grades K-12. In order to comply with "Alyssa's Law" which requires schools to have panic alarms in place (motivated, in part, by the Parkland shooting at a Florida school in 2018), the Lee County school district has decided to implement Centegix panic alarms throughout the district.
The technology can be activated by any staff member with the push of a button. Once activated, first responders will know when, and where inside a building someone triggered that alarm, as well as what kind of alarm was triggered. Red and blue strobe lights installed throughout the building visually show what kind of lockdown the emergency is.
