Alert Systems

Code Red, Code Yellow, Code Blueand Code Green

There are 4 colors that FrandMe includes in the basic package: Code Red, Code Yellow, Code Blue and Code Green. Restrictions as to who may activate a “Code” can be set up at the discretion of each individual municipality, school or business. Additional “Code” colors are also available if needed.

Code Red

In the event of an emergency, any authorized party (not student) can identify a Code Red threat. Code Red, for example, could be for a shooter, fire or similar significant emergency. When a Code Red emergency occurs, the appropriate first responders will also receive the same alert in real-time and can immediately respond without time delay. This provides immediate response capability by all required parties to the school or business entity. An audible alert is also sounded upon a Code Red emergency, alerting everyone within that business entity’s notification system that the location is in lockdown until the emergency is over.

Code Yellow

Code Yellow is used for general notifications such as meetings, weather issues (snow or hurricane), special events, altered schedules and similar situations where mass communication to the school or business entity’s universe is required.

Code Blue

Identifies a medical or other emergency. In addition to obvious medical assistance needed, Code Blue can also be used to identify moderate emergencies that are not of a Code Red level, such as a power issues, flood or water pipe breakage or some similar type of emergency alert.

Code Green

Is the “all clear” notification. In the event of a Code Red, all participants may be notified with a Code Green that the emergency has been handled and is over. Throughout the “Code” process, communication is available in the form of text messages. In an effort to minimize panic and create a more efficient and secure mass communication platform, FrandMe’s secure messaging system may be used throughout an emergency to keep all associated people informed.

Every school or business can determine the various “codes” they wish to utilize and can customize what each of those “codes” signify.
