Sounds like an interesting idea! Just curious what others think of it!

That is a great idea, especially for big schools with crowded halls. I like the idea.
*Except* there's one drawback that might make it harder to get it into schools -they'll need to modify it a bit before they bring it to the US. Because when I was in high school over 5 years ago at the cusp of the cell phone explosion, they had already banned cell phones in the school. If they caught you with one, they gave you a Saturday detention or suspension. So they'd have to modify it so there's a special small button the kids can carry around, similar to those necklace home alert things for senior citizens (like the one on the "I've fallen and I can't get up!" commercial).

I was also in HS when the cell phone explosion started. You were allowed to carry one, so long as the office was notified of it to begin with. It was for students for emergency purposes only. It could only be on vibrate, and only answered for true emergencies.
I carried my cell phone a few times with me, so that if I had an emergency during the day (especially after I started driving) or while I was at a school function or cross country/track race/meet, etc, I could get ahold of my parents or vice versa.
I didn't click on the link yet, to be honest. Has anyone looked into that one phone from Verizon that has the 4 buttons on it, preprogrammed for emergencies - each parent, 911 and whomever the other emergency contacts are? I saw that and thought those would be a great thing for children with allergies and other conditions.
