Back to school safety checklist

Technology should be used to improve people's life, and that is what Defywire is about - using technology and business backgrounds to keep children safe and teachers teaching. As part of this commitment, Defywire has developed a safety checklist as quick reference and review in times when an emergency arises at school. The checklist includes designating an out-of-town person for your child to call in the event of a crisis; assigning a pre-set word that means emergency when your child uses text messaging; choosing a social networking website as a back-up for communication when all else fails; making sure the school has your latest updated contact information; knowing and practising the school’s emergency plan.
