Can You Call for Help When You Need It?

On-Demand
crisis communication, mass notification

What if you needed to call for help, but you couldn’t connect?

Unfortunately, that is a problem that we hear about more and more in school safety incidents. Mass notifications that don’t go out, SRO radios not working, these present significant safety concerns for school administrators.

This presentation will explain, using language you can understand, the factors that prevent calls from going through, and what you can do to fix the problem.

You will learn:

  • Why indoor radio communications are a problem for schools and we will review examples of school incidents where poor indoor comm (public safety and/or cell) hampered response.
  • ERCES 101: What is an inbuilding DAS? What is the difference between an ERCES system and a cellular boosting system?
  • Why radios and cell phones don’t work well indoors in schools in some areas, and what are the systems available to address them.
  • How to take action to fix the issues your school might be experiencing.
