Slippery Rock University and Metis Secure Solutions, LLC announced today they have entered into an agreement to install a state-of-the-art, location-based emergency notification system at the University.

SRU will be the first public University to install the Metis Secure system, which was recently named the 2009 Technology Innovation of the Year by Campus Technology Magazine. The system allows authorized University personnel to send detailed instructions to alerting devices in specific locations in less than 10 seconds. Each device is also equipped with a unique two-way "Call for Help" ability by which a student can press a button to automatically send a request for help directly to the University Police.
