Push-to-talk two-way radios are a great investment for every school. They are great tools to help school administrators maintain clear communication, provide essential response time for medical emergencies, along with many other uses. Below, we will go over the top 10 uses for Peak PTT in schools.

Even worse than medical emergencies is the harrowing reality that American schools face on a daily basis: active shooters. Security threats are no joke, and the best way to deal with them is clear communication between staff. This will allow your staff to identity the security issue, call the police, and communicate the location of the active shooter and how to best escape to safety.
