Lockdown Alert System
Secure your pupils and staff with Bodet’s Lockdown Alert System
A growing number of schools in the UK have been exposed to major incidents or threats of violence on their premises. Due to the random nature of these events, there is little schools can do to prevent them. However, by having clear and effective communication systems installed alongside robust lockdown and evacuation procedures, schools can be certain they are doing all they can to ensure the safety of staff and students.
If you would like to see how a Lockdown Alert System can form part of your Lockdown procedures, this lockdown video on the BBC website demonstrates the Bodet system installed at Reinwood Junior School. The filmed lockdown drill begins with a distinct lockdown alert being broadcast across the school, prompting pupils and staff to take immediate action.
Events which could trigger a full or partial lockdown:
- Incident or disturbance in the local community.
- Intruder on school site with potential to pose a risk.
- Warning of air pollution.
- Major fire in the vicinity of the school.
- Dangerous dog roaming loose.
Using a fire bell to announce class change, as well as all emergency situations such as evacuation and lockdown, can lead to confusion. In the event of a possible violent intruder on the premises, the last thing any school wants is pupils streaming out onto a playground and gathering at assembly points.
To solve this issue, Bodet have created a Lockdown Solution which broadcasts a unique Lockdown School Alert. Our multi-button control panel enables you to broadcast emergency alerts, such as lockdown, evacuation, wet play / wet break and panic alarm at reception. As well as routine announcements such as class change, lunch or the end of school, in the event of an emergency this enables specific alarms to be broadcast across the entire site. That way, both staff and pupils know what’s happening and what action to take.
