The Indian River School District is joining with the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center.
They will be promoting two initiatives with brochures that will be sent home with students.
WBOC reports that one is the Smart911 app which provides a safety plan for people’s families and homes.
The other is PulsePoint alert which notifies CPR-trained bystanders to cardiac emergencies.
The app will tell people the location of the person in need and the nearest Automated External Defibrillator for CPR.
The television station reports that the brochures will ask parents to sign up for these programs.
