Similar to the Omnilert service, and jumping on the bandwagon following the Virginia Tech shootings incident, Fort Lauderdale-based Alertify have extended an offer to provide their notification service to colleges and universities nationwide at no cost.

American Heritage School in Plantation already has the system in place. It’s gotten plenty of use for simple school messages and emergency information, like if the school is placed on lockdown or if it’s closing due to storms.

‘During the hurricanes of last year, there was a lot of confusion over whether we would return to school and what day and with the Alertify system we were notified immediately of all the present changes,” said student Kelly Chacon.
