Why Schools Need a Mass Notification Unified Security System

The ability to manage incidents/events such as weather events or hostile incidents, can be a difficult endeavor to accomplish without the right tools and processes in a K-12 facility. Hostile events thankfully are rare events, but there is no denying that all schools will face emergencies large and small related to other hazards. Thankfully there are processes, procedures, protocols and technology that help our Nation’s schools manage these emergencies.

One of the most critical security technologies to school safety is Mass Notification. Mass Notifications when unified with other security technologies dramatically enhances the abilities of school occupants to respond to an emergency in a quick, safe and efficient manner. A Mass Notification system will also enhance the ability of other emergency responders such as police, fire, EMS and School Safety officials to respond quickly in emergency. A Mass Notification system unified with a school districts processes, procedures, protocols and other security technology will help a school district to address the many hazards that it may face.

In this webinar attendees will learn:

  • How to develop an effective strategic Mass Notification plan.
  • What are the different types of public address systems.
  • What is E911.
