In the wake of the December mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, more safety efforts have been analyzed, approached and introduced around the U.S. to help keep kids safe in schools.
Today’s schools face new challenges that extend far beyond simply teaching curriculum. The schools are communities of children for hours at a time, where potential threats to a child’s safety are real – and they’re unpredictable. While many think “it can never happen here,” clearly the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School has awakened all of us to potential threats in schools. Some school districts are offering armed guards to watch over visitors to schools. Other school districts are re-evaluating all safety procedures to double check for any gaps in enforcement.
Here in the U.S., it’s particularly crucial to revisit the safety of kids in schools. The audio-visual systems that CCS Presentation Systems sells for use in K-12 learning institutions and higher education universities are being seen in a new light for detecting, monitoring and supplying an extra layer of protection for kids in schools here.
Our company sells many types of audio-visual solutions that help in audio and video monitoring physical spaces and locations, including school lobbies, cafeteria and most importantly, the classrooms. One company whose audio microphone and monitor system we offer is Audio Enhancement. The firm markets its SAFE (Security Alert for Education) systems for school districts in the United States. It’s a classroom amplification system that also increases school safety, with a feature that allows teachers to alert authorities with a panic button.
Watch this video clip to see how Audio Enhancement’s teardrop microphone can be used quickly and effectively to disarm a possible volatile situation in the classroom.
The way that Audio Enhancement’s audio security system works is that an alert is instantly sent to first responders and live audio/video feeds are activated. Then, appropriate assistance can be dispatched quickly with clear and concise information.
Audio Enhancement has been improving learning environments for over 30 years. If you are in a school district management position you owe it to yourself to see one of these monitoring and alert systems up close. Contact CCS Presentation Systems to give a demo to your school board today.
