School lockdowns can be triggered by a range of unexpected events, but Bodet’s Lockdown Alert System can broadcast a customisable alert so your pupils and staff know exactly how to respond in any emergency situation. These alerts can be triggered by a range of both wired and remote methods, such as wireless remote control and smartphone app. 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 students and staff.
We would be happy to visit your school for a free demonstration so you can see how our Lockdown Alert System can be tailored for your specific needs. To arrange this, please contact us.
