Safescape Founded by Columbine High School First Responder, Gaining Rapid Traction
Denver, Colorado – February 23, 2015 – BuildingDNA, Inc. (www.BuildingDNA.co), developer of the BuildingDNATM dynamic mapping platform for Smart Buildings and Emergency Preparedness, announced today that it has partnered with the rising school safety consultancy Safescape Solutions (www.SafescapeSolutions.com) in order to leverage that firm’s sales efforts and accelerate BuildingDNA’s expansion into the substantial schools market. Safescape sought out BuildingDNA’s dynamic visual mapping software to further bolster its offering value and competitive advantage, and is embedding BuildingDNA SmartMaps in all future proposals and final products. Safescape has already secured the first school district under this combined approach.
“As a young State Trooper called to the Columbine tragedy, I witnessed firsthand the chaotic experience, broken communication channels and overall feeling of helplessness”, stated John Kirton, Safescape Founder and Managing Partner. “So many years later, there still exists a critical need for improved, streamlined crisis communication between first responders and school adminstrators. I started Safescape to connect these parties so that they operate in unison and are better prepared save lives when an emergency occurs.
“When I first discovered BuildingDNA, I was immediately struck by its potential applications within our system – it would bring our training to life via dynamic school SmartMaps, allow first responders live “eyes” on the situation and would leave behind an actionable and fluid digital record of our work, creating a foundation for safety that could endure years of turnover. We believe the combined Safescape/BuildingDNA offering will be a powerful change agent across the school safety landscape.”
