Brevard Public Schools implement emergency communications system

Brevard County, Florida, joined six additional Florida counties using Mutualink´s instant emergency communications coordination platform to enhance school safety readiness and response, the company said.

On December 11, 2018, Brevard County School Board authorized the implementation of Mutualink in all of Brevard County´s public schools. The system addresses many of the communications coordination problems and delays repeatedly identified in school shooting incident after action reports around the nation, including in Florida.

Brevard joins numerous school districts and universities across the nation adopting Mutualink´s instant crisis response and coordination technology.

Within Florida, Brevard joins a growing movement of Florida counties efforts to implement instant cross-agency emergency communications and information sharing capabilities to make schools safer and enable coordinated response.
