RedBag Ready!

Know that during an emergency your teachers and students have the information and supplies they need to begin the recovery process as early as possible for the best possible outcome.


  • Give your students and teachers the best tools available in an emergency
  • Know what is happening in all of the classrooms during an emergency and be able to communicate with specific classrooms and areas in your schools

The RedBag Radio Difference

At RedBag we believe that “Recovery starts when the crisis begins”. Our focus is on the well-being of the teachers and students in the classroom. During a crisis we need to communicate quickly, effectively and often to reduce traumatic stress. The faster they know they are no longer in danger, the less damage is done. The goal is to mitigate any potential long term trauma brought on by the incident.

RedBag – Emergency Supplies + Emergency Communications

What People Are Saying

I am a student who decided to scan the bag and see the content that was provided with the QR code. The information was really helpful and the videos were very informational, while being the perfect length so a person can act immediately. I feel a lot safer with these instructions in the classroom ready for anyone to use. I didn’t get a chance to open the emergency chat because this was a drill. But one of my biggest fears as a student in a lockdown was I had no way to contact the authorities that were already in the building. With that being said, the emergency chat took that whole fear away and I am so thankful for that. Overall I think the red bag and QR code is super helpful for everyone in a lockdown setting.

– Smoky Hill High School Student

“I wanted to take a minute to thank you for today’s training.  As a former principal in a nearby district, these annual trainings were nothing less than traumatizing and the training managers often used fear and sensationalism as their training aids.  I would spend my day after these trainings focused on staff mental health because there are not many people who have not been affected in some way by the many events in Colorado history.  

First, this RedBag process is phenomenal and blows my mind.  What an incredibly thoughtful and strategic process to help guide people in a potentially horrific situation.  As a teacher, I feel so much more secure and supported in helping keep my students safe. 

Second, thank you for your delivery.  Thank you for understanding educators, students, and calming fears as opposed to inciting them.  I cannot even begin to tell you the value of this.  Today has once again reinforced why Cherry Creek does things so well.  Thank you so much!”

– Lee-ann H., Teacher at Cherry Creek Schools

I just wanted to express my appreciation for all you and district security do to protect students and staff in CCSD. Im a Columbine survivor, and am so impressed by the new security measures being put in place this year. The Red Bag system we will now have with the QR codes would have saved lives at Columbine. Most of what you and your team do is behind the scenes, but please know it is not taken for granted. So, thank you! 

– Erin F., Teacher at Falcon Creek Middle School

Thank you very much for providing the Redbags for us! Our district is way ahead of most in this area, and we appreciate it.

“Schools should be a sanctuary where our kids learn in an environment without fear. Our goal is to help every school district in the country access the resources available to them to keep their students safe. The parents in Uvalde asked us to do one thing, “make their lives matter.” We hope this can help do just that.”
