March 21, 2012 -- Bay Saint Louis, Miss. – NVision Solutions Inc., is pleased to announce the release of its new NIMSmart program which helps schools comply with grant requirements from the U.S. Department of Education, and in some cases state governments.
The safety of children in schools from bullying, terrorism, disasters and other threats is a significant national concern. The Department of Education provides grants as part of the $30 million Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) program. Schools must have a comprehensive emergency management plan, compliant with federal standards in order to be eligible. The grants help schools provide training, buy resources, and improve critical infrastructure related to school safety.
NVision’s NIMSmart software provides an easy-to-use wizard and templates which guide school officials through the process of creating a plan quickly. NVision is selling the software through its website at http://www.NVisionSolutions.com.
“Our company has a strong focus on emergency management and homeland security,” said NVision President Socorro Harvey. “The safety of children in schools is one of the most important initiatives we need to support as a country.”
NVision, headquartered near the NASA Stennis Space Center in south Mississippi, is an active member of the EIGS geospatial technology cluster of the Magnolia Business Alliance (MBA). For more information about NVision Solutions, Inc., visit www.NVisionSolutions.com.
