Improving School and Hospital Security with Panic Alarms
Here are some best practices to consider, as well as common mistakes to avoid, when deploying duress systems.
Whether you work for a hospital or school, panic alarms are a great way to call for help during a crisis. Now, more than ever, healthcare facilities and K-12 campuses are deploying these systems so that staff can appropriately respond to everything from a medical emergency to a campus shooting to a patient or student who is acting out.
The challenge for campuses is to select the right solution and then support it with the correct technology, training and policies so that it will be optimized.
To help us learn more about this technology is RF Technologies’ Marina Willis, who is the president of the company’s PinPoint and Sensatec business unit. In this podcast, she describes some best practices your campus should consider when selecting and deploying panic alarms. Willis also discusses common errors campuses and districts make when buying and using these systems.
