Re-introducing the Mobile Emergency Response Plan:
The app that puts your Emergency Plans
in the hands of those that need it, when they need it.
A digital alternative to printed Emergency Response Plans, the MERP is a school emergency management software that allows your Emergency Plans, Floor Plans and Contact Information to be on the desktops and mobile devices of your staff, bus drivers, and even local first responders. The MERP comes pre-loaded with emergency plans that were developed with input from five Fire Departments, four Law Enforcement Agencies, the County Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, and the County Board of Health.
Knowing how quickly plans can change, I designed the MERP to allow the School or District to customize and revise their plans at any time for free. You read that correctly: unlimited revisions at no additional cost. Once those revisions have been made, MERP users will see those updates immediately. Instructions are provided on how to setup, customize, and revise the MERP, but I am always available to assist clients without any additional cost or package upgrade. In addition to Emergency Plans, building floor plans and any other PDF document can be stored and retrieved by necessary personnel.
Maybe you’re thinking of a group of individuals who you’d like to limit the information they are able to access on the MERP. Do parent volunteers need access to a confidential phone list of key District Personnel or First Responders? Probably not. Would parent volunteers benefit from having the Emergency Plan listing how they should respond to a student’s allergic reaction during a classroom party at their fingertips? Most likely! I’ve designed the MERP to give my clients the power to decide who has access to each piece of information they incorporate on their MERP.
Most importantly, the MERP was designed with simplicity in mind. When designing this software, I wanted to be certain that the end-user would not require hours of training to put their emergency plans into action. To be clear, I fully encourage users to refresh their knowledge of their emergency plans through training and exercises – that’s part of why Safeguard Risk Solutions exists! But the container that holds emergency plans should never be a stumbling block during an emergency. The MERP is that digital container for those plans, taking them off the shelf in the Principal’s office and putting them into the hands of those that need it when they need it. Because of its design, the MERP can be implemented at your organization in less than a day. This enables your School to get started using the app immediately.
The MERP Difference
Reading through my blog posts, you will see that my goal for Safeguard Risk Solutions is to be a resource to my colleagues in School Safety. I am always available to answer a question or provide feedback on an emergency plan, and this holds true to the clients of the MERP. When you’re a MERP client and have a question, the person who is there to provide an answer is a person with a career that spans more than 30 years as an Educator, Administrator, and Police Officer. Safeguard Risk Solutions is not just a software company but a wholistic school safety company, who provide exercises, safety plan content, training, and an app to put all that knowledge in the hands of your personnel. Who would you rather talk to when you have a question about the School Safety software you just purchased: A Chat Bot programmed with answers or the experienced School Safety Professional who created the app?
The MERP In Action
While all of this information can seem overwhelming, remember: The MERP was designed to be simple. Simple to set up. Simple to use. Simple to revise.
