Education Emergency Response Solutions
Emergency preparedness is a top priority for educators and administrators and is crucial in ensuring the safety and well-being of students and staff. In times of crisis, connectivity, and communication is the foundation for emergency response.
From natural disasters to public health emergencies and everyday crises to school shootings, having a solid communication and connectivity plan improves coordination and response times.
School officials need the ability to make informed decisions and act quickly to ensure the safety of students and staff. Premier offers a variety of innovative solutions that educational institutions can implement as a part of their emergency response plan.
Our portfolio of products includes a full suite of school safety solutions, including panic buttons, gunshot detection, emergency mobile communication kits, school bus safety solutions, air quality monitoring, extended area Wi-Fi access, remote learning, and more. Plus, we can help you identify grants to help you fund your initiatives.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on schools has been significant. The pandemic highlighted the importance of digital equity in education and the significant impact that lack of access can have on students' learning outcomes. Schools continue to face challenges ensuring all students have access to technology and reliable high-speed internet access, particularly in low-income areas and rural communities.
Premier's remote learning solutions offer schools an integrated approach to online education, with reliable and innovative tools to help students and educators stay connected and engaged in learning.
Our goal is to empower schools to provide a seamless learning experience, allowing students to continue their education from anywhere and ensuring continuity of learning during times of disruption.
Identifying the right devices for your students makes all the difference in their success. We can simplify the process, make it easy and provide the best solutions to engage students at every grade, learning, and socio-economic level.
Premier's ConnectED Bus solution offers Internet access, GPS, and student tracking which can all play an important role during an emergency situation. For example, if a school bus is involved in an accident, there is a medical emergency onboard, or the driver is lost. Additionally, these same services can be beneficial when schools are used as shelters or evacuation centers. Onboard internet can be used to provide real-time camera access for real-time situational awareness for school officials and first responders. In a disaster or emergency, it can be used to access important information such as weather updates, news, emergency alerts, and other critical details.
GPS can be critical in emergencies to help navigate and locate individuals and vehicles, allowing first responders to quickly and efficiently provide assistance.
Student tracking can be crucial in emergencies to ensure students' safety and reassure worried parents and guardians. Schools may need to evacuate students quickly and transport them to another location during emergencies.
The local government might also use the buses to evacuate retirement communities, even entire neighborhoods, during a hurricane or other event. Having student/people tracking software in place gives these first responders the confidence to know who has been safely evacuated and accounted for.
Premier's ConnectED Campus solution leverages cellular connectivity to augment a school district's fiber connectivity, particularly when fiber connectivity is unavailable, unreliable, or where redundancy is critical for continuity and communication during an emergency and active threat.
Our ConnectED Campus solution ensures communication by providing backup connectivity. It supports remote response, and it increases resiliency. Cellular redundancy is crucial to ensure communication channels remain open even when primary communication lines are disrupted or overloaded, allowing emergency responders and the school to coordinate their emergency response.
Beyond leveraging Premier's ConnectED Campus solution for emergencies, it can be used as a temporary solution when and where needed, including for new buildings when waiting for fiber connections and a primary connection for remote locations, sports fields, parking lots, and portable buildings.
Overall, Premier's ConnectED Campus solution provides cellular connectivity to complement a school district's fiber connectivity, providing mobile internet access, backup connectivity, temporary connectivity, and cost-effective solutions. By leveraging ConnectED Campus, school districts can ensure that students, teachers, administrators, and first responders can access the internet and essential resources, even during challenging situations.
Air Quality Monitoring
Monitoring air quality can help reduce illness in schools. Poor indoor air quality contributes to respiratory problems, allergies, headaches, and fatigue, which can lead to increased absenteeism among students and teachers. By monitoring air quality, school districts can identify and address the various factors that negatively impact indoor air quality, create a healthier learning environment, and reduce absenteeism. Our advanced air quality monitoring solutions provide schools with real-time monitoring of air quality levels, enabling swift action to be taken in response to any hazardous conditions. With our cutting-edge technology, schools can be equipped to identify and respond to potential air quality emergencies quickly, ensuring the safety and well-being of all those on campus.
