Campus Lockdown

An active shooter reported at a school


A potential gunman on campus

It's a situation that's unfortunately very familiar to many first responders - reports of an active shooter at a school or college campus. Time is of the essence, the search is frantic, and communications are key.

How can FirstNet help?

  • Provide priority access so first responders can connect to significant video resources on campus to help maintain situational awareness.
  • Prioritized 9-1-1 traffic to keep the lines of communication open so witnesses and victims can connect with first responders.
  • Location-based applications can help commanders coordinate and deploy resources and locate potential victims and suspects.
  • Provide technology that allows first responders to quickly and securely send high-resolution images and video to the emergency room. This allows doctors to review and assess any potential injuries before patients arrive at the hospital.
