Two-way radio communication making schools safer, more secure and vibrant places.

Every education establishment, whether a school, college or university, owes its students, staff and visitors a duty of care while they are on campus and offsite on organised trips.

Within the perimeter of a school or higher education campus, threats to safety and security can include injuries from accidents, natural disasters such as flooding, storms and earth movement or from malicious acts including vandalism, theft, arson, bullying and personal assault. The ability to report threats and incidents quickly and efficiently is essential in managing risks, containing situations and implementing emergency plans.

However, as campuses have become larger and spread over multiple sites, buildings more complex in construction and with more activities taking place outside school hours and off-campus, existing analogue hand-portable two-way radios and small communications networks can be stretched beyond their designed capability and result in less than ideal coverage.
