School Bomb Threat & Evacuation

A Crisis on Campus


A school is evacuated

A bomb detonates in a student locker. Threats are made against several area schools. School district administrators frantically assemble bus drivers so they can pick up students and evacuate them to a safe, off-site location.

How can FirstNet help?

  • Give agencies local control of users and applications so they can automatically give others priority access to the network during times of emergency - for example, when students need to be evacuated.
  • Provide access to a network backbone that supports integration with Next Generation 9-1-1 services and Smart Cities public safety applications - ensuring that all aspects of emergency work/call flow are available to public safety.
  • Enable access to secure applications for data, voice, text and video sharing so bus drivers can get updates in near-real-time and as circumstances change.
