Secure Your Campus with Two-Way Radio Solutions

K-12 |  Community Colleges  |  Universities  | School Transportation

Is your school struggling to coordinate lockdowns? Is your staff equipped with radios that don’t provide coverage throughout your school building and campus?

After an emergency situation, the number one limitation education facilities list in their after-action report is lack of quick communications.

There is a simple way to improve your emergency response and your daily communications.

GCS can equip your school with a simple multi-radio system or begin building a fully integrated solution to prepare you for every situation. Our team services individual schools and serves as a preferred vendor for districts such as Guilford County Schools in North Carolina. 

Your two-way radio system can include:


Portable Radios

Education faculty and staff require clear and secure communications no matter the facility size or scope. An effective two-way radio system at your school must have excellent coverage with reliable equipment. Does your current solution live up to your needs? If the answer is no, give us a call-we can provide an on-site needs assessment at no charge.

Some examples of two-way radio system configurations for schools are:

  • Single Building
  • Entire Campus
  • Multi-Site Community Colleges
  • School Bus Transportation Systems

Equipment and Technologies used  in Education Systems:

  • Analog (typically older, legacy systems)
  • Digital (DMR or NXDN)
  • Conventional Repeaters for seamless, reliable coverage
  • Trunked Systems for advanced features such as “All-Call”

911 Connection

Placing calls to 911 are not part of a school’s regular operations but when an emergency occurs, you need to be prepared. GCS can work with your school to seamlessly connect your two-way radio system to the nearest 911 center.

Give the staff on your campus access to instant emergency communications. In the event of an accident, outside threat or medical issue, you can quickly alert 911 dispatchers, school resource officers and administrators.


Alerting Systems

Get NOAA Weather Radio SAME weather alerts directly on your school’s portable two-way radio to dramatically reduce your reaction times to severe weather alerts. An average tornado warning is only 15 minutes. Will that “cheap” weather radio you have in the office work? Will 15 minutes be enough time? We can show you a better way to get it done.


Public Address Systems

Do you have to go back to a phone and call the PA system? Did you know we can integrate your two-way radio system to your current PA system? Save time and effort by bringing more functionality into the palm of your hand. Make the “All-Call” right from your radio. In other words, things have changed.


Emergency Call Boxes

Emergency Call Boxes provide peace of mind for everyone who sees them. When the call box button is pressed, you will receive direct notification on your two-way radio and you will be able to communicate directly with the person needing help. Place these call boxes in convenient areas where help may be needed.
