Lock down systems are extremely popular in schools, colleges and academies, playing a pivotal role in keeping staff and students safe in emergency situations. A growing number of schools in the UK have been exposed to major incidents such as bomb threats and violence on their premises, so it’s critical for schools to put clear procedures in place for such extreme scenarios.
It goes without saying that using a single fire bell to announce class change as well as emergencies can lead to confusion among staff and pupils, whilst it goes against government recommendations for school lockdown procedures. With a high quality, dependable lockdown system, you can broadcast unique emergency alerts, such as lockdowns, evacuations and panic alarms – as well as routine announcements like lesson bells. Setting specific alarms can better prepare your staff for emergency situations, ensuring every teacher and student understands what is happening, as well as the action they need to take.
