WHAT IS ALYSSA’S LAW

Time Saved = Lives Saved

Named after Alyssa Alhadeff, a victim of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy, this legislation addresses the issue of emergency response time with silent panic alert systems linked directly to first responders and law enforcement agencies.

Our Emergency Management Suite (EMS) includes 911Cellular’s silent panic alert to help you comply with Alyssa’s Law. Better together, we are dedicated to providing school staff and students with crucial extra minutes that could mean the difference between safety and tragedy.

Proposed Federal Law:

The ALYSSA Act and the Safer Schools Act of 2021

Both the ALYSSA Act and the Safer Schools Act of 2021 are currently in committee in Congress. Introduced by Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ-5) and Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX-25), respectively, the bills would require schools to install silent panic buttons as well as conduct robust security and risk assessments to identify gaps in hard security and make necessary changes.

“During shootings, everyone is trying to call 911, and the 911 switchboard takes seconds to minutes to respond. The average school shooting takes six minutes or less, so those delays become a child’s or staff member’s life.” – Ilan Alhadeff, Alyssa’s father
