Alerting First Responders Immediately
The SAFE System is an alert notification system designed to work with Audio Enhancement’s classroom systems. Using the built-in alert button on the transmitter, a teacher wearing the pendant microphone can discreetly send a signal for help. An entire network is alerted to respond promptly and appropriately to the situation. The SAFE System consists of a receiver/amplifier unit, teardrop microphone, Monitoring Station, and either a Network Adapter or a security camera. It can be customized to process alert notifications according to each specific school district policy.
From allergic reactions to broken bones, sports injuries to chemical exposures, head or heart conditions, the SAFE System provides a way to get help.
Furthermore, it isn’t students alone who can become subject to bullying – an article published on CNSNews states that “in November [of 2010], the Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics and the Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics quietly released a report—“Indicators of School Crime and Safety: 2010”—indicating that 145,100 public school teachers had been physically attacked by students at their schools in the course of a single school year and that another 276,700 public school teachers had been threatened with injury by a student in that school year3.” [emphasis added]
With the capabilities of the SAFE System, teachers and administrators are able to monitor, intervene and correct such behavior before it leads to tragic circumstances.
Having an informed staff that can instantly summon authorities with the SAFE System can be the key to handling these extreme emergencies. In the same Secret Service document, it states “The findings clearly emphasize the importance of paying attention and listening to America’s young people. More than a handful of adults— parents, teachers, school administrators and counselors, coaches, and law enforcement—can make an important contribution to and play a key role in preventing violence on school grounds.5” [emphasis added]
Every day, teachers bring every tool at their disposal to help their students learn. Now, The SAFE System brings them the tools to keep their students safe.
