Three Ways Two-Way Radios Can Improve Safety at School
Support Student Safety with Push-To-Talk
Security measures only work when the ability to gather information and communicate instructions are immediate; delayed notification and implementation of protocol may have an impact not only on the wellbeing of your students and faculty, but also in the institution's legal liability. That's why TeamConnect integrates several features that help ensure resources are mobilized and school safety techniques are put into play at the earliest opportunity possible.
Private or Group Communication
With this feature, school administration can relay critical messages - to designated individuals, assigned groups, or an entire team - at the push of a button. Information can be shared with key personnel simultaneously, avoiding the hassle and confusion of having to repeat messages to multiple individuals. Confirmation of information receipt can also be conveyed immediately so that you know everyone is on the same page.
Pre-Programmed Status Updates
Communication plans for schools often require status updates and the collection of up-to-date information. With TeamConnect two-way radio systems, status alerts can be pre-programmed and sent at the touch of a button, saving the time and aggravation of contacting multiple parties with requests for updates, or coordinating and receiving multiple updates from different sources. With real-time status updates, your school administration can be better equipped and able to handle inquiries from students' parents or other parties if a situation arises and such calls are anticipated.
Urgent DOT-Compliant Messaging
Instantaneous school bus radio communication allows administration and school bus drivers to send and receive urgent messages so that actions can be coordinated, and instructions can be conveyed immediately. Whether it's drivers notifying the school that a particular student is not at the bus stop or administration advising drivers of accidents or other occurrences that require a change in route, timely notification means more efficient and effective responses. Moreover, TeamConnect offers two-way radios that are DOT compliant, meaning your drivers can communicate freely while your students are transported safely.
Seamless Connection and Student Management with TeamConnect
Offering among the best two-way radios for school security, TeamConnect features are vital not only to maintain the safety and security of students and staff but also for assessing the efficacy of safety plans as well as their implementation. Up-to-the-minute information gathering is not just important for deploying emergency measures, but to ensure accuracy in the planning stages. Proactivity, after all, is just as important as the ability to react when time is of the essence.
