Schools and Kindergartens

Health Care & Education

Sadly, there is also an increasing need for security communication at schools. Providing the means to protect students and staff from possible attacks by violent students and outside perpetrators is now considered standard procedure, as is the protection of personal property both during and after school hours. Schools must be safe, under everyday conditions as well as in an emergency.
