Prestigious Academy Implements Preparis’ Emergency Messaging Tool

ATLANTA, GA – October 17, 2017 – Preparis has released a new customer success story with Lake Oconee Academy. The story features how the academy is able to ensure student and faculty safety with Preparis’ emergency messaging tool.

“Preparis is a good, usable device. It really has a fit in schools because it’s quick and easy. It’s nice to be able to carry it around on your phone and use it if you need it,” said Ortho Tucker, CEO of Lake Oconee Academy.

When a teacher’s disgruntled ex-husband threatened to show up at the school to see her, the safety of faculty and students was a major concern so the school was put on lockdown for the most of the day as a precautionary measure. As a result, Lake Oconee decided they needed a better way to communicate with staff and crisis members if an incident were to occur.

“There are a lot of situations that can happen in schools and you think that they will never happen to you, but you really have to prepare for if they do,” concluded Tucker.

Since implementing Preparis’ emergency messaging tool about one year ago, Lake Oconee Academy has used it to communicate with faculty, staff, and parents during a couple of lock-downs as well as a handful inclement weather situations including a tornado warning that occurred during afternoon carpool.

Going forward, Lake Oconee Academy feels confident they will be able to use Preparis’ solution to manage any incident that might occur at their school. Additionally, they are emphasizing the importance of the training courses Preparis has to offer for faculty, staff, and crisis team members.
