In this complimentary workshop, industry experts share insights regarding best practices school leaders lean upon to improve the communications and physical security of their communities.

Our presenters detail the challenges a school faces when it comes to communications and safety. From managing daily and emergency communications to finding ways to properly monitor and process ingress, egress, visitors, and intruders, underlying technology systems make all the difference. This is especially true when dealing with emergency situations when every second is critical to finding a positive resolution.

In addition to examining how technology solutions can enhance daily communication, our presenters will also explore situations where there have been significant breakdowns or failures in message delivery.  Case studies referencing tragedies like Uvalde, Sandy Hook, Parkland, and Covenant will be explored in detail to highlight what went wrong, why it went wrong,  and how best to prevent devastation from befalling your campus. Finally, presenters discuss both the physical security and communications solutions that can be employed in a strategic effort to streamline daily and urgent message delivery.

Guest expert Adam Drew, School Resource Officer (SRO), law enforcement professional, and founder of Three Corners, a consulting firm focused on K–12 safety training and workshops in the New York and New Jersey area, and Eastern DataComm’s National School Safety Advisor Paul Jenne will share practical guidance and useful insights that will positively impact how you safeguard your school community and keep communication flowing efficiently and effectively when every moment counts.

Adam and Paul will share the real-life value of reviewing your school’s processes, policies, and procedures related to daily communications as well as emergency events. You’ll walk away with a clear understanding of how these elements, working together with technological systems like video surveillance, access control, emergency notification, paging, bells, clocks, and phones, can create the most connected and safest school environment – one that our children, educators, and supporting staff deserve.

  • 9:00 am to 11:00 am – Interactive Presentation with Audience Q&A, inclusive of live demonstrations of innovative video surveillance, access control, and emergency notification technologies, as well as phone systems, and paging, bell and clock solutions

Objectives & Anticipated Learning Outcomes

In this seminar experience, we’ll explore both the emergency and day-to-day benefits of strategically implementing integrated communication and physical security systems including video surveillance, access control solutions, paging systems, clocks, bells, network infrastructure, and VoIP phone systems.  We’ll share case studies from our clients who use these solutions each day. We’ll offer insight on the lessons learned from national school tragedies while applying those hard-won insights to the communications and physical security challenges schools like yours face each day.

We’ll also tackle the essential process of reviewing and improving school emergency response policies, procedures, and technology solution approaches so that your school community stays safe and responds swiftly and effectively when every second counts.

After participating in our educational workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize the common challenges schools face with day-to-day communications as well as during emergencies like lockdowns and active shooter incidents and what insight can be garnered from past tragedies.
  • Understand the role of video surveillance, access control, paging systems, telephone systems, and emergency notification systems as part of a robust school safety and communications ecosystem.
  • Think proactively about unique population considerations, areas of potential vulnerability and emergency circumstances.
  • Identify crucial policies, procedures, and technology solutions for a comprehensive emergency notification and response system.
  • Understand potential gaps in technology integration, emergency procedures, and school- or district-wide communications and emergency policies to improve the overall safety and communications profile of your campus.
