Hutto ISD announced it has implemented Rapid Responder, an emergency management and crisis preparedness system. The system is helping all eight Hutto ISD schools to better prepare and plan for potential emergencies.
Three years ago, a chemistry experiment that went wrong forced students to evacuate the high school. The fire department responded, but without updated maps or information on hazardous materials, they couldn’t respond as efficiently as desired.
Denise Kablaitis, Hutto ISD’s director of Health & Safety Services said, “Rapid Responder helps keep everything centralized. In one location we can find maps, floor plans, response plans and locations of hazardous material. It keeps everyone in the district and our responders on the same page when responding, which increases our district’s effectiveness.”
