Increasingly, schools are “locking down” in response to personal safety threats. These range from medical emergencies to more serious threats.
Often used are weapons such as – knives, guns and explosives, to vehicles which inflict harm on others. Sadly, their targets are all too often children. We must be keeping children safe in education.
Our bespoke platform for educational facilities has now been installed in various colleges, hospitals and schools throughout the UK with many more scheduled.
In cases of emergency, our approach offers the ability for instant live site-wide communication, with text-to-voice AI technology or pre-recorded messages.
So, what is a lockdown?
An emergency impacting a school or campus that prevents the safe evacuation of a school building and requires steps to shelter students and staff from danger.
Getting the most from your solution
People, processes, and technology need to always work together.
There is no value from technology if people don’t know how to use it.
Having the best food ingredients is pointless if you don’t know how to cook!
Audiebant will ensure you know how every element of our easy-to-operate system works.
