Ditties on lack of info.
I also am just disappointed that when I receive a notice of an incident that I have to search other sources for information. Even with the new text messaging system, all I get when I click on the hyperlink is the Hero 911 page with a banner saying "info not found."
Fortunately I have not had to test the active shooter notification. With that said, I pray that it works more efficiently and the information portion of this app.
I hope someone at Hero 911 is listening! Thank you anyways for an excellent concept, and what I hope is the beginning stages of a great app.
Part of leaving feedback is that it is accurate and helps one make a good decision for themselves. There have been some founders and users here being attached to the app and really wanting it to be great. Members have gone as for to re-review people maybe like myself when they have received feedback. There have been some reviews of too many alerts and let me explain what would be great. Hero911 has limited settings to make this effective for the violence that you can have an impact on. Basically you get what anyone posts even when it not in your effective area even a mile out of your area could be the distance that makes it unusable and more like news. I hope it can rapidly save lives. It’s still a social environment like the news. It’s limited to active officers and vets. Which historically civilians have a much higher rate of success in communicating situations that are violent to authorities or civilians around that can help. Really if there was an app like this that was civilian based with a narrow geo fence that civilians armed or not could support a situation that would really save lives 10 fold. Facebook should consider a option to report a crime, register your CCW License or law enforcement options when you register would have the effect that is proposed here. They are international and have the biggest effective user base. Everyone reading this probably already has a Facebook page and doesn’t need more news.
Great in Theory
Things I like: news and updates for shootings all over the country long before any national coverage gets it out
Dislike: This app is great in theory. What it fails to take into account is how many teachers in schools have no training or experience in life or death scenarios. A shadow lingers across their outside window, and BAM they’re hitting the Hero911 alert on School Guard. 2 kids are fighting in the cafeteria: time to hit the app again. Teachers also loving testing new programs to see how well they work... A school I work in implemented a similar program through their computers, and they found around 5 of the 150 teachers were hitting the panic alert daily. Cops are trained in what scenarios are actually dangerous. Teachers teach.
Like I said. The app is great in theory, but I don’t trust 90% of teachers to know when not to push the button and to remember to push it when adrenaline puts them in Condition Black.
