When an incident occurs, most think they can simply place a phone call to get help.  Fact: Internal security and outside first-responder phone lines often become quickly flooded with calls when an incident occurs which can result in callers not getting through or being placed on hold.  Based on our surveys of those who have conducted active-shooter training or plan to, NONE of those surveyed indicated that they have given any thought to this issue that organizations can't afford to overlook.

QuikHelp can enable any employee to quickly and easily send an alert for help from their smartphone WITHOUT HAVING TO MAKE A PHONE CALL!  These same alerts can also be sent to local first responders AT THE SAME TIME.  Alerts for help appear right in front of security personnel and first responders without the delays that phone calls often experience.

On June 28, 2018, there was an active-shooter incident at the Capital Gazette Newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland where 5 people were killed (watch video above to see a short clip from the interview).  During the shooting, an intern was forced to take cover under a desk with only his smartphone in hand.  While under the desk, he tried to contact first responders by phone but couldn't reach them because their phone lines were overloaded with other callers needing help themselves.

When incidents occur, callers often can't get through or get put on hold.  The result:  Notification delays like this can lead to more loss of life AND increased liability exposure for organizations impacted by these events.   In this case, this dispatcher could view QuikHelp alerts from smartphones almost instantly using a simple browser that most dispatchers already have.  These alerts can also be sent to field responders at the same time eliminating the need for dispatchers to relay information.
