Contact information for each of the vendors, as well as important information regarding the responsibilities of school districts, is included on the attached Memorandum.  

By choosing to purchase a panic button alert system from a Qualified Vendor, a school district does not have to use the bidding process before entering into a contract with the vendor. If you have questions about system capabilities, features, or pricing, you must contact each vendor directly. It is also vital that you communicate with city, county, and local emergency management and first responder agencies regarding any specific local requirements, system compatibility, and the impact on response times. You may also contact the Arkansas Division of Emergency Management at (501) 683-6700 with questions.
