For most schools, the only method is with a phone call. Calling 9-1-1 usually gets the school location information to the authorities however, once the responders are in route to the school or have arrived on scene there is no clear line of communications for them to quickly access the situation and pinpoint the exact location to gain control of the incident. The ideal set up would be for the schools’ radio system to talk directly to the on-site public safety radios. Time is critical in these situations and direct communications could yield lives that are saved.
The Solution… Each patrol car, fire engine, and ambulance has a two-way radio installed to allow rapid communications between these responders and their dispatch center or Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP, where 9-1-1 calls are answered). This allows them to control and coordinate their safety and lifesaving actions. Most officers and firemen also carry a handheld two-way radio on the same radio system. Schools however operate a different type of two-way radio system that is not usually in the same public safety band. A product called SchoolSAFE™ bridges these two types of radio systems together so they can talk to each other during emergency situations.
SchoolSAFE bridging is based on industry standard devices that are time tested and reliable. SchoolSAFE equipment is permanently installed and integrated into school and public safety data networks to allow remote activation and deactivation, as well as personnel alerting. This allows school personnel near the emergency situation to provide real time information about the situation to assist rapid actions by first responders. The school can call the public safety field units on the radio, while PSAP dispatch or responders can also call the school to alert them to lock doors or take other emergency precautions based on incidents outside of the school.
