What Is Alyssa's Law?

Alyssa's Law is critical legislation to improve the response time of law enforcement when life-threatening emergency occurs at K-12 schools. It mandates that all elementary and secondary school buildings be equipped with silent panic alarms that directly notify law enforcement. When seconds count, law enforcement will get on the scene quicker, take down a threat and triage any victims.

How To Prepare For Alyssa's Law

Public elementary and secondary schools can work with local alarm and telephone system installers to stay ahead of legislation. Being proactive means schools have more power to decide when alarm system upgrades and changes take place.

Waiting to make these changes until Alyssa's Law is ratified exposes students and staff to increased risk.
