Download PDF

TORONTO, March 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or the "Company") (TSXV:ISD) (OTCQX:ISDSF), a leading provider of interactive mobile advertising solutions that serves advertisers, manufacturers, retailers and advertising agencies throughout North America, today announced it has reached out to the Broward County School Board with an offer to install its Security Alert Messaging ("SAM") solution into the Marjory Stoneham Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida at no cost.

iSIGN's SAM solution is the first of its kind to not only rapidly alert students and faculty, but also give clear instructions on the quickest and safest method of avoiding the threat.  While SAM aids in evacuating the premises, it can also alert police, EMT services, fire departments and other first responders depending on the nature of the emergency. The solution can be integrated with existing alarms and other security measures to ensure that authorities arrive, and school attendees evacuate in as little time as possible.

As the sixth largest public-school system in the United States with over 270,000 students in 310 schools and education centers, the company considers Broward County a prime example of where the SAM system could demonstrate its effectiveness.  "With such a high concentration of relatively unprotected children on site, school systems have a higher than normal risk profile as children do not have the maturity to react wisely to a variety of possible dangers that can impact any civic environment," stated Mr. Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer.

It is expected that a large-scale deployment will showcase the solution's ability to rapidly alert students and faculty to a wide range of emergency situations such as an active shooter, intruder on the premises, or natural event. This pioneering solution is the first of its kind to not only immediately alert students and faculty, but also provide clear instructions on the quickest and safest method of avoiding the threat. While SAM aids in evacuating the premises, it can also alert police, EMT services, fire departments and other first responders depending on the nature of the emergency.

The initial deployment would connect all students and faculty with cellphones to the SAM system, with the ability to add digital signage screens, close proximity transmitters, and connection to hardware-based alarm systems and social media when desired.
