Campus Safety Magazine recently published its 2020 Emergency Notification Special Report which highlights the challenges schools have when integrating multiple emergency notification systems to work together.
It's no surprise that integrating systems from multiple suppliers would have its challenges. The systems are not designed to work seamlessly together. This challenge may prevent schools from implementing the systems needed for a comprehensive emergency notification solution and compromise the safety of students, staff, and faculty.
It doesn't have to be this way! The CareHawk Life Safety Communication Platform includes lockdown and other critical emergency communication protocols, two-way classroom intercom, indoor and outdoor zone paging, visual message displays, email alerts, synchronized clocks, school calendar, bell schedules, district-wide alerts, and more. Control communications using your school floorplan and staff directory with the user-focused MapAssist software.
The best part, it's designed to work seamlessly together straight from the factory.
Ok, let's look in more detail at the top concerns schools had with their notification systems and how the CareHawk platform solves these challenges.
63% of schools are most concerned with the inability to notify every student, faculty, staff member, and visitor in an emergency.
The CareHawk Life Safety platform has you covered with indoor and outdoor paging, digital message displays, and email alerts - all activated with a single touch of a button, a click of a mouse, or the touch of a finger. Notify staff, students, faculty, and first-responders of emergencies on and off-campus!
The district-wide solution connects emergency messages between multiple schools and even entire school districts. Get your message to the right people at the right time.
This year's survey asked respondents with multiple systems that aren't integrated why their solutions can't interoperate. The most popular reason cited was a lack of money or resources
(30%). K-12 respondents most frequently cited this reason, with 36% saying this is an issue for them.
There is good news! The CareHawk life safety platform integrates classroom intercom, indoor and outdoor paging, digital message displays, email alerts, lockdown triggers, and more, all in one expandable system. Integrate further with third-party fire alarms, security sensors, and video cameras.

Power Outage? All emergency communication systems require power to operate, so a backup power source rated for your system requirements is vital.
Phone lines down? You're covered. Broadcast emergency indoor and outdoor pages, two-way intercom to classrooms, send messages to digital displays, and send email alerts (in some cases), even if phone lines are down.
No access to the internet? Eek, but you're still covered! Broadcast emergency pages, intercom to classrooms, and send messages to digital displays even if access to the internet is compromised.
35% of schools are concerned with the high ongoing cost to renew services and/or licenses associated with their emergency notification systems.
We understand, and that's why Carehawk doesn't charge ongoing service and license fees to keep your staff, students, and faculty safe. Better still, software upgrades are FREE and all CareHawk systems come with a standard 5-year warranty.
