Why Your Campus Needs A Communication System
Within the first few minutes of an emergency, before first responders have arrived, occupants are at their most vulnerable, often unaware an emergency is even happening.
According to the FBI, 70% of shootings last less than five minutes, and 60% end before first responders can arrive. In many scenarios when law enforcement was present or able to respond, civilians still had to make life and death decisions in those first few minutes.
To help keep students, faculty and staff safe and informed when seconds count, schools must consider the systems they currently have and how they are utilized during their response to certain emergencies. Paging and intercom systems form the foundation of most communication efforts in a school building and will naturally play a vital role in emergency response as well. Schools should invest in an integrated system that not only facilitates day-to-day event management and communications but also is designed and maintained with emergency response in mind.
