Eastern DataComm Hosting Three Seminars to Discuss School Safety, Security and Emergency Preparedness

Hackensack, NJ, September 17th, 2018 – Eastern DataComm announced they are hosting three seminars in October to discuss solutions to one of the most important topics facing school districts, law enforcement and municipalities today – safety. How quickly and effectively a school can notify everyone of a lockdown or active shooter event can help save lives. At the seminars, attendees will learn how effective policies and procedures, coupled with the right technology, can dramatically improve the safety of students and staff. They’ll also hear from experts in the fields of school safety and technology to learn the right solutions for their schools or municipalities.

The seminars aim to educate school administrators, municipal leaders and local law enforcement on school safety best practices, as well as improving overall day-to-day communication and notifications for a lockdown or other emergency event. The discussion will include 3 principles to follow when purchasing technology and how districts and municipalities can utilize their existing technology components (ex: phone system, paging system speakers, etc.) as part of these improvements to maximize their investments.

The featured speaker will be Chief Kevin Craig (Ret.), Director of Safety & Security at High Point Regional High School. He is also on the Advisory Board & a Senior Instructor with the New Jersey Association of School Resource Officers, a member of the ASIS International School Safety and Security Council and New Jersey School Security Task Force. Kevin has a wealth of knowledge, focusing on school safety in school districts throughout the state.

Also speaking at the event is Paul Jenne, Sales Manager, Eastern DataComm. “After working with schools and municipalities for over 20 years, we’ve learned not only which communication technologies are needed, but how to maximize those investments within tight budgets. By fully understanding communication technology components and how they all work together, we can recommend the best ways for schools and municipalities to improve their day-to-day communications as well as improve emergency notifications for school and building safety,” says Mr. Jenne.

The seminars are scheduled for 11am – 1:30pm on Wednesday October 10th in Hackensack, NJ, Thursday, October 18th in Sparta, NJ and Tuesday, October 30thi in Bridgewater, NJ.
