PORT ANGELES, WA—October, 2008—Incident Alert Systems (IAS) of Port Angeles, Washington announces the selection of its Fast Alert incident management and security system by the South Kitsap High School located in Port Orchard, Washington. A member of the South Kitsap School District, South Kitsap High enrolls approximately 2,500 students in grades 10, 11 and 12. Teachers, support staff, school police services and community organizations within the South Kitsap School District currently work together to prevent, prepare and respond to any emergency situations that may occur. Fast Alert incident management and security system will further enhance student safety, which is the district's top priority.

"We are excited to support the South Kitsap School District in their proactive efforts to ensure the safety of their students, teachers and staff with Fast Alert, which was designed to be a comprehensive and reliable notification solution to critical incident communication requirements," said Tom Reyes, President of Incident Alert Systems.

Patent protected Fast Alert is a bi-lingual, computer-enabled, incident warning and management system with mobile, all-platform, management capability, which empowers those charged with managing an emergency to quickly and accurately sound the appropriate alert in one or more languages as needed. Fast Alert is designed to leverage existing data networks and integrate with existing intercom systems or added amplified speakers. The system can be activated by cell phone, PDA, tablet computer, laptop or desktop computer for direct and immediate communication between teachers, staff and first responders during emergency situations, providing warning of imminent or in-progress life threatening events.
