For faculty and staff, two-way radio systems keep schools and universities safe. Whether you need to communicate during a fire alarm, alert the staff of suspicious activity, or stay connected during a field trip, clear and reliable communication is key.
Your school needs the best in two-radio systems for a variety of situations. But you also need to consider installation costs, initial equipment costs, and the price of training your staff. Communication is important, but you can’t rely on cheap products handled by inexperienced staff.

Everyone has a cell phone or smartphone these days, especially young people in schools. While we use them to talk and text with our family, friends and coworkers, they aren’t always reliable.
Not only can these technologies fail, but people can panic during an emergency situation. During these high-stress scenarios, mistakes are bound to happen. This is especially true if a person has to operate complicated equipment in order to communicate.
Two-way radios are specifically designed to keep individuals in contact during daily life and emergency situations. Using radio waves that connect to each radio unit individually, they rely on their own frequency to maintain communication.
Cell phones and landline phones require a cell tower or physical line to connect to a network of units. Two-way radios only require a stable connection between the receiving units. This means you can keep your communication open even when phone lines are down or you have bad cell reception.
School safety has become a hot-button topic in recent years, with emergency drills for dangerous fires and school shootings becoming more common. Two-way radios provide an accessible and reliable solution to improve communications during a critical emergency.
Whether you’re working with a small elementary school or managing security for a university, two-way radio systems can provide superior communication solutions.
There are many pieces of equipment that schools can use between their faculty to ensure information is passed clearly and reliably. Many of these systems work together, creating a synergistic connection between your two-way radio equipment.
These education two-way radio systems include:
Your faculty and staff require clear and secure communication in order to keep your school running smoothly and your students safe.
Without effective portable radios connecting you across your campus, you could be putting your school at risk. We offer two-way radio configurations such as:
Severe weather can strike at any time. For Greensboro, NC schools, that means you have to be on the lookout for dangerous thunderstorms, hurricanes and flooding. By partnering with NOAA Weather Radio SAME and connecting their weather alerts to your portable radios, you can ensure your staff will be ready for any severe weather event.
Your school’s PA system helps communicate important messages across your campus. But in the event of an emergency, you still have to go back to your phone to make the call.

Open communication isn’t just about talking through portable radios, it’s about giving everyone the ability to clearly communicate through reliable means.
