SALEM — The mother of one of the victims of the worst school shooting in the nation’s history called on Oregon lawmakers Feb. 13 to require the installation of a mass notification system in all K-12 schools.

Lori Alhadeff testified by video at a hearing on House Bill 3101 before the House Education Committee. It would require a “panic button” system at schools that would send out a mass notification to law enforcement and other emergency response agencies that supporters say would speed response times in life-or-death situations. Cellphones at a school could be used to send the message.
