Effective school communication in today’s world, requires school districts to facilitate fast communication between multiple entities. Push-to-talk two-way radios give you the tools you need to improve all around communication whether managing emergency situations, improving school security, conducting fire drills, or simply dismissing school at the end of the day. Here’s how.
Push-to-Talk Two-Way Radios Connect the Dots
From administrative staff to teachers, school bus drivers, crossing guards and even local police and emergency services, push-to-talk facilitates instant communication with the push of a single button.
Additionally, many modern radios are equipped with panic buttons that override any other chatter to provide short communication bursts in emergency situation. These seconds can be critical and save lives when fires break out, buses are involved in accidents, bad weather appears on the horizon, or even when woodshop or chemistry lab emergencies occur.
Two-way radios allow everyone to be on the same page about emergency situations as well as the normal day-to-day operations of a busy school district.
The Durability Factor
School districts have access to a wide range of radios and accessories. While there are some that have more bells and whistles, anyone operating push-to-talk radios in the presence of so many students wants to have one that can take a few chills, spills, and hard knocks along the way.
There are plenty of rugged and durable two-way radio options with impressive IP ratings available to help your staff keep the lines of communication open when things get a little rough and tumble on the schoolyard.
Keep Buses and Cars Moving After School
Parent pickup and bus lines at the end of a long school day can become quagmires of traffic and uncertainty as students forget things, parents have messages, and teachers try to make certain no child gets left behind. Two-way radios allow teachers manning the front lines to communicate with teachers on other sides of campus to learn what’s going on when children aren’t where they’re supposed to be.
Batteries that Outlast the Day
The average school day begins near eight and ends at three. That doesn’t mean that teachers, maintenance staff, coaches, and other administrative personnel leave when the last student goes home. Thanks to extended life batteries, modern push-to-talk two-way radios can help school personnel make it to the end of their days without worries about communication going out at a critical moment in their schedules.
