June 23, 2022, Cary, NC - Governor Kathy Hochul signed "Alyssa's Law" today, requiring New York school districts to consider installing silent panic alarms to alert authorities directly during emergencies. Many silent panic alarm systems allow schools to bypass 911 and discreetly connect with law enforcement during an emergency.
Alyssa's Law addresses the issue of law enforcement response time when a life-threatening emergency occurs. Alyssa's Law has now been passed in New York, New Jersey, and Florida.
Alyssa's Law is named after Alyssa Alhadeff, a 14-year-old girl who lost her life at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. Alyssa Alhadeff's parents have fought to pass the law in New York for three (3) years. In addition, the family's goal is to pass Alyssa's Law nationwide.
The New York City mayor's administration is currently analyzing the Law to see how New York City schools can complement its current safety protocols.

About Ganz D2PD Emergency Communication System
During an emergency, time is critical. The Ganz D2PD bypasses traditional, slower notification methods and communicates directly with the police. D2PD can be initiated in the classroom from any mobile device via a "Panic Button" or by the school administration - alerting the police and others. Concurrently, D2PD rapidly distributes tactical information to Emergency First Responders when they need it most.
In an active shooter or medical Emergency Event, law enforcement's ability to expedite response is the single most significant factor in preserving life. The D2PD unit featuring Go2Blu software and monitoring provides notification to local law enforcement in less than 1 second from alarm activation, bypassing dispatch and allowing immediate response to any life-threatening incident.
