Keeping our kids safe at school? There's an app for that.
A new app that several local school districts are using could alert staff of a threat with the touch of a button. Navigate Prepared lets teachers and staff initiate a lockdown fast. It works with local law enforcement so that calls to 911 don't need to be made, which can save precious time. It’s a simple thing that could save lives and definitely helps protect our kids.
Now, the app isn't up and running yet but should be in the fall.

People who live near the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii have had to leave home to escape the danger, but when Carol Hosley was packing up two weeks ago, her two dogs became frightened and ran away. Thankfully though, after a 10 day search, a rescue team found the dogs trapped between a fence line and a surge of cooled lava. Luckily, they weren’t seriously hurt.
